What to expect

Our worship service is designed to welcome you and move you into the presence of God, who loves you more than you imagine possible. So come causal, make some new friends, have some popcorn, sing along with the band, pray, receive a biblically based message that is helpful for living Monday through Saturday, and connect with God.
