Our Worship Team takes seriously the weekly task of providing worship that sets Christ Jesus as Savior at center stage. We place a high value on the way Christians have worshipped for centuries and model their patterns. At the same time we look to embrace new styles and settings that our Heavenly Father is presently giving to his Church in the interest of telling the news of his Son to every soul.
In order to do that, we offer a rotating set of service orders that vary in style, but not in content. In the course of a few weeks you may experience the use of organ sound, a piano, guitars and other strings, brass and reed instruments, percussions of all kinds, hymns that are 500 years old, as well as songs that are relatively new. You might worship on a quiet evening with a few, or on a festive morning with a crowd. But the fabric of what we call "liturgy" (as seen below) will always be noticeable, and it will always have the goal of sharing Christ.
