Change in Sunday Worship Times

As of Sunday, May 13th, 2012, we will be moving to 3 Sunday Morning Worship Services! We will have 3 Worship Services with 3 different Worship Syles:
  • 8 a.m. is our Traditional Service. It contains hymns, a choir, congregational singing and responses. It is the most formal of the three services we offer. 

  • 10:15 a.m. is our Blended Service. This service has a choir, praise team, a children's message and our children's choir on the 3rd Sunday of the month. This is a mix of the old and the new. 

  • Noon is our Contemporary Service starting May 13th, 2012. This service welcomes casual attire, has a more laid back feel with high energy contemporary gospel music done by our praise team. Our pastors will preach without robes or even a suit jacket. This service is without formalities.
