WHAT TO EXPECT
We open by singing together as a congregation, led by our praise team, band, and choir. Music varies from hymns to current worship songs. Song lyrics are projected on screens so you can sing along and/or engage however you feel comfortable. Services are just over an hour and also include a time of prayer and Scripture reading. Preaching is typically expositional, detailing the meaning of a passage of Scripture in context, exalting Christ, and calling the listener to action.
Yes! During the 11:00 AM service, an interpreter is situated at the front left of the Sanctuary as you walk in.
You'll see a variety of styles from casual to informal. You'll see gents in jeans, slacks, polos, button-down shirts, tees, and some in suits.
