Worship

"…worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

Our worship services are designed to help everyone connect with God in a way that makes sense and is meaningful.  We desire for each person to experience the joy of corporate celebration, and the benefit of personal reflection.  Our music encourages both of these elements, and is led by a talented group of people who make up our vocal team, worship band, and on some weeks our worship choir and orchestra.

While our music is primarily contemporary, we utilize an array of songs, instruments and sounds, all carefully chosen to help people of every age connect with God. We also value the arts and technology as creative ways to communicate. In addition to music, our services often utilize video, drama, and other visual elements to help enhance the worship experience.
