The vision for a church that looks like heaven has been developing in the hearts of our leadership team for years. In July, 2005, the Hagan family moved to the Natomas area of Sacramento and begin to lay the groundwork for Real Life Church, originally known as Mars Hill Community Church. A core group of families began to gather as they learned and embraced the vision, meeting on Thursday nights to plan, learn and grow in relationship. Word spread about an exciting new church about to begin and the core group prepared for opening day.
January 8, 2006 was the official launch date for Real Life Church - Arena Campus, and the morning was historic. As we came together as authentic family, the Spirit of God was present and we celebrated as He changed people's lives. From that first morning at American Lakes Elementary, we have been blessed to be a part of God's plan and the redeeming power of His love.
