First Time Attending:

We are a church of about 500 people per weekend with a heart for God and His people! Something our church does very well is provide a warm family atmosphere to all who attend.

Service Layout:

Our service layout is a mixture of Contemporary Worship Music as well traditional songs. We start with a few songs lead by our Worship Team, transition into a Choir piece, then end with a 30-40 minute sermon. We currently run 2 Services on Sundays and Youth on Wednesday nights.

Vision for Worship:

We desire to serve our congregation with the music that we select, but also have a heart to create an environment that young families and college students would enjoy! We currently have a full band play blended worship music consisting of modern and seasoned music, then our wonderful choir leads us in a hymn. We believe this provides a good mixture of traditional and modern so that everyone feels comfortable and can enjoy the worship experience.
