Welcome to The Front Church

The Front Church is a new non-denominational Christian church in the southern part of the Salt Lake Valley. New? Not particularly religious? From another tradition? We are preparing for all sorts of company. We can’t wait for your 0-12 year old kids to experience KidFront. We think they’ll love it! Come no strings attached. We can’t wait to meet you!

Take Grandma's Robe Off of Christmas

A Fresh Look (Message)

Watch as our Lead Pastor Nate Ray kicks off our new teaching series, “Not Your Grandma’s Christmas: A Fresh Look at an Age-Old Story.” When we think of Christmas, often our thoughts feel nice and cozy, like Grandma’s robe. Warm feelings, mixed with nostalgia, sentimentality, Grandma’s eggnog, and Amy Grant singing us Christmas songs flood our memories. But when we take Grandma’s cozy robe off of Christmas and take a fresh look, we discover a story that has changed, is changing, and will change the world. Join us as we look at Luke 2 with fresh eyes.

Look Ahead (Message)

Watch this important message.

Times are changing. We’re about to be a new church. A lot has built towards this moment. Our Lead Pastor Nate reflects on the story of the Exodus. God had rescued His people, was leading His people, and God’s people kept looking back and wanting to go back, instead of looking ahead towards the new life of the promised land. We can look at them and think they must have been clueless, but if we are honest, we realize we do this too.
