What should I expect?

  • Come as you are. Seriously. We don’t care about how you dress. We don’t care how much or how little you know about the Bible or God.
  • There will be some music. We like a variety so you just never know. Sometimes it’s loud, sometimes it’s quiet and reflective. We use various musical styles to help us worship our amazing God.
  • Our services are interactive and engaging. We believe what we talk about at church should be relevant and applicable to your daily life, so we try to give practical insight into what God says in His Word.
  • We sit at round tables in the main room. They allow us to bring food and drinks into the auditorium, but we also use them to help with some of the interactive things we do.
  • Lastly, and most importantly, you can expect a group of people that are committed to living the way Jesus taught us to live while loving each other and everyone else. We actively serve in our communities and care about our families.

Our Story

In the summer of 2005 a small group meeting in a home began to share common concerns they had for their kids.
This common burden turned into an idea to form a new church. Others were invited to join and the church held their first meeting on October 2005 in a home. Close to 20 people attended that first meeting and soon the group grew to 50 people meeting in the Morrison’s Barn.

David Hudson, the senior pastor, joined the church in December of 2005 and put his church planting experience to work. Waypoint Community held its first public meeting on Easter Sunday, 2006 in the cafeteria of the old Heritage Middle School. Waypoint was a trailer hauling portable church setting up every Sunday morning. Children’s ministry was done mostly in the gymnasium and a Teen ministry was launched called the Barn which continued to meet at Morrison’s Barn.

That summer Waypoint held its first Baptism and many students were a part of this first key event.

In October 2007 Waypoint moved to the Boys and Girls Club of Middlebury where we set up every weekend. However, the new location allowed Waypoint to begin using more interactive tools in the services and provided a more kid friendly environment with rooms that were designed with kids in mind in the first place. We added two full-time roles allowing for ministry to be accomplished and for a foundation to be built for the future.

Construction for our permanent home began in the spring of 2012 at our current location. We moved into our new space on December 16th, 2012 and held our grand opening on February 2013. Last year Waypoint baptized 26 people and our ministry continues to connect with many more. We are looking forward to the new chapters God will write with our community.
