Church Description *

Three years ago, a beautiful three year old girl, Magnolia Goetze stepped into heaven, leaving behind a wake of heartbreak and hope. From this was birthed the vision of Arbor church, a place where broken hearts could be met with the hope of heaven. On earth, pain is a promise… the leadership at Arbor knows this. They also know the vast, immeasurable, deeply healing and altogether lovely, trustworthy love of Jesus, the Anchor, Rescuer, and Prince of Peace.

Lead Pastor Jake Goetze and his wife Davey were prompted by God to start this community called Arbor Church after the death of their precious daughter. After a long career in youth and family based ministry, Jake, knew that this calling was from God and his obedience ensued.

Arbor Church was founded in January of 2017 with the help and support of a few other area churches. Today, nearly 450 people attend weekly, only a year into this journey!

Philosophy: in everything they do as a church and as individuals in their everyday life, they do INVITATIONALLY. Meaning, the people at Arbor seek to always keep their eyes focused outward, inviting people into their lives, their homes, their groups, and the church.
