  • What Is a Worship Service Like?

    Pastor communicates in a way that speaks to our lives today. He focuses on how to apply Christ's teachings to our lives so we each can experience God's incredible purpose every day.  The music wraps the message in a relevant way, with songs chosen for one purpose --- to grow deeper in our understanding of, and love for, Jesus Christ.


    The first Sunday of each month is Communion Sunday. We invite all who profess faith in Jesus Christ as their Savior, regardless of their church affiliation, to participate with us.


    Green Connection cards are placed in the bulletin. Please complete them and put in the offering plate.  We have a special gift bag for our first time visitors.  Please visit the information center for your gift.
