We offer two services in our fellowship hall that feature contemporary music and a laid back atmosphere. These services seek to be more interactive and are offered in a more intimate and personal space. They are offered at 8:30 am and 9:45 am. In these services, our worship leaders are the praise team, which is comprised of the band and singers, and our clergy.
Come and experience the joy of being a part of a community that seeks to grow together in Christ through worship, through song, and through hearing the word of God together. We will be blessed by your presence!
