We gather on Sunday morning to worship Jesus Christ and proclaim His greatness. Our bulletin spells out the order of the worship service. Worship services are built upon the unchanging truth of who God is, what He does, and the hope of the Gospel and is empowered by the active work of the Holy Spirit. We will sing together, pray together, hear teaching from the Bible together, and have the opportunity to respond to God. During the service there is a voluntary opportunity to give tithes and offerings.

Typical music includes a mix of contemporary and traditional worship styles with a blend of both modern and classic selections. Moreover, our reason for being here is to genuinely worship Jesus Christ.
HOW ABOUT THE TEACHING?
Our teaching is solidly based on the Scriptures. We do message series that may focus on a book of the Bible or a set of biblical concepts. Each message is biblically grounded, applicable, and challenging. Every message is designed to remind us who God is and to evoke a positive change in our lives.

Communion is celebrated once a month, usually the first Sunday of the month. Our Communion Table is an open table; every Christ believer regardless of his/her religious affiliation is welcome to participate in communion.
