The Music and Worship ministry has the purpose of leading gathered people to genuinely encounter God and to worship in “Spirit and truth”, with heart and mind, emotion and contemplation and then to live out worship in their daily lives.

 

SUNDAY WORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES CHOIRS INSTRUMENTAL TECH TEAM

Sunday Worship

Contemporary Worship

At 9:30 am, our Contemporary worship service meets in the sanctuary. Progressive in nature, this worship experience is distinctive in its mix of current, band-led music. At its core is sound Biblical preaching. Video illustrations and other artistic and interactive elements are frequent.

Traditional Worship

At 11:00 am, our Traditional worship service meets in the sanctuary. This worship service includes hymns, traditional choir anthems and instrumentals featuring the organ and piano.  Songs from solo vocalists or vocal ensembles are shared weekly as well as meaningful instrumental offerings from the Churchestra and Handbell Choir almost monthly.
