Areas of Ministry

 

WORSHIP SERVICES

Worship has always been essential to the Christian life. We come together to lift up Christ through song and sound Biblical teaching. We offer two worship experiences that are both family friendly. G4 is a modern service with modern music and a casual atmosphere. Traditional worship features choir, hymns and takes place in the Sanctuary.

Children, ages 5-11, are welcome to participate in the children’s moment in each service and then go to Children’s Church for an age appropriate lesson. Youth are encouraged to worship in the G4 service at 10:10am and attend Sunday School at 11:15am.
