Today is the beginning of the shorter Ordinal season of the Church year. You’ll notice that we’ve changed the ambience to green, which is the official color of the season. It is our desire that you connect with our Savior during our time of corporate worship. You’ll have opportunity to participate in all that happens, whether through music and song, prayer, fellowship, hearing the Word of God (the Bible), through giving, serving, or just responding to the movement of the Holy Spirit in your life.
LOOKING FOR MORE?
Your spiritual journey is important to us. We provide nine adult Sunday school classes to choose from, Ladies Bible studies on Wednesday nights, service on Sunday nights and much more.
