  • New Worship Service

    We are excited to announce that we have launched our new contemporary style worship service. This service will be held on Sunday evenings from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm. We believe that there are many folks in our community that are not able to attend a Sunday morning service because of other family or work commitments. This service is intended to reach those folks! Come join us on Sunday evenings!
