What is worship?

Worship is our weekly gathering to praise God.  In worship we love God, we talk to God, we listen to God, we surrender to God, we commit to God.  It’s all about God’s relationship with us and how we choose to respond.

Vibrant worship is important to us.  We offer two distinct styles of worship – traditional and modern.  We believe that music and other art forms are gifts given by God to reach the core of the heart and connect us to God.  We invite you to come with new and exciting gifts to share in this area.
