- Contemporary Worship
9.00 AM - Sanctuary
The 9:00am Contemporary Worship Service meets in the Sanctuary every Sunday. We encourage a come-as-you-are spirit that spills over into how we dress, how we express ourselves in worship and ultimately, how we hope to meet with God in the midst of our community. Join us as we let our guard down, lift our heads up and experience God's grace through band-driven music, prayer, and the study of God's Word.
- Traditional Worship
9:00am and 11:15am
Traditional worship meets at 9am in the Chapel and 11:15am in the Sanctuary each Sunday. The Chancel choir provides music leadership every Sunday honoring a strong choral tradition, a rich heritage of hymn singing and the regular introduction of new music and styles that enhance the worship of Almighty God. Pipe organ, piano, orchestral instruments and handbells provide accompaniment and stand alone as solo musical offerings. Through our worship we respond to God and each other. Through our music we engage more closely to God as we celebrate Christ and experience His love.
