Our Services

What are services like?
Upon entering our church you are most likely to be greeted by members and welcomed. After a opening you will experience a contemporary style worship. Guitars, keyboard and drums provide the music in a casual atmosphere where you are encouraged to sing along while the words to worship songs are projected upon a screen. We have special prayer for the needs of those in our congregation as well as extended family, friends and our community/ We then break for a few minutes of fellowship and refreshments. We then move into the sermon, and children have an opportunity to attend a class to learn Bible on their level. Pastor Sheldon shares from the Word a message that is relevant to the lives of all and challenges each member in their christian lives.

What is the community like?
We are a diverse group of people in age, race and culture. All are welcome!

What if I'm not a Christian?
We encourage all to attend. Our prayer is that you will come to know Jesus Christ and allow Him to become your Lord and Savior. We offer Bible Studies on Wednesday nights at 7pm where you can learn more about what the Bible is and how it can help enhance your life. We offer at special request Bible studies to meet your personal needs.
