It all started here in a small chapel in 1971. Since then, God has done more than we could ever imagine by changing thousands of lives all over the Reservoir area. When we gather each week, we come believing that God continues to work right here and right now.

Children + Students + College

If you have children from birth to five-years-old, we have something special for them called Little Lakers. If your children are in first through fourth grade, we have an exciting place where they can learn about Christ called Pinelake Kids.

Little Lakers Pinelake Kids


Pinelake 56 is a community that gathers weekly for an intentional worship experience geared towards 5th and 6th graders.

Middle and high school students are encouraged to worship with their families and find ways to serve at Pinelake on Sundays. But we also have a gathering of worship, teaching and small groups designed just for Pinelake Students called Ignite. We look forward to having you and your family!

College is one of the most important seasons we go through. These years will set the trajectory for who you will become and what you will do for the rest of your life. We want to meet you where you are on your journey with Christ and help you in this crucial time through: connecting you to a College Small Group, equipping you to reach your campus and having you join our mission teams.
