We strive for God-honoring, soul-satisfying worship!
Our Sunday morning Worship Services are a corporate expression of our individual desires to give God glory and honor from the gifts He has given each of us.
Together, we lift up our voices in song, in words of affirmation and praise, in the confession of sin, and in the call to worship. We give our gifts of time, talents, money, and heartfelt worship to strengthen and edify one another in our relationships with the Lord, and with each other, as we walk through life together seeking to honor Him.
As believers worship together as a body, we grow towards the Lord and towards one another. As non-believers experience worship services, we pray that they get a glimpse of life in the Kingdom of God and that their hearts would long for more.
Our Worship Services are gospel-driven, stylistically varied, and artistically excellent.
We strive to craft worship services characterized by an unswerving commitment to a Christ-centered, Scripturally-shaped, historically-rooted pattern of living dialogue between God and His people through word, song, prayer, and confession designed to guide the hearts experience the surpassing greatness of our Redeemer and King, Jesus Christ.
No single style of music is prioritized as we strive for a transcendent gift of worship to our glorious God through beautiful choral anthems, excellent instrumental music, traditional hymns, newer songs of worship, spirituals, folk-based music, classical music, and many other styles. It is our prayer that the heartfelt expression of worship using music from a variety of styles will minister to the hearts of the people present, drawing a wide variety of people from many different backgrounds into a closer relationship with the Lord and a deeper connection within this local body of believers.
Our Creator God lavished His creation with intricate detail, breathtaking beauty, and transcendent wonder. In His image, we strive to bring our best offerings to the Lord as part of our worship of Him. He has given many beautiful gifts to members of our congregation and we work to cultivate those gifts and present them back to Him for his glory and the good of the body that meets at this local church. We encourage participation from the congregation on many different levels to grow our community in worship expressions. We long for every voice in our worship services to be lifted up in joyful praise of our Lord for his glory!
