Similar churches often offer music styles like contemporary, traditional hymns, and passionate reverent.
Programs like youth group, adult education, missions, children's ministry, and young adults are also typical.
What are services like?
Our worship services are a blend of traditional and contemporary, using a form of liturgy but not necessarily the same each week. We project most of the service on a screen so everyone can feel more a part of the service. We give opportunity for children to hear a message at their level, then go to Sunday school while their parents and others hear a message at their level. Above all our message is Christ-crucified for the forgiveness of all sins, so all are welcome.
What if I'm not a Christian?
We don't expect that any of our guests are necessarily Christian bur are coming to find out more about us and our congregation and our message. We assume people in our worship have never worshiped with us before -so we include directions throughout the worship service so no one should feel left out or estranged. We also include time after the service for everyone to gather around refreshments if you so choose.
