Sunday Morning

First Service

9:00 AM

Second Service

10:45 AM

Each Sunday we gather together for worship. While we understand that worship itself is a value more than an activity we know that God desires His people to come together regularly to express worship to Him. The core components of our worship times involve:

  • Prayer
  • Singing
  • Teaching from the Bible
  • Giving

Every Sunday we are led in worship musically by a worship band. The message time is directly tied to the scriptures and is brought by one of our teaching pastors.  

MaxKidz & Nursery/Preschool ministries are provided for children during both services

Wednesday Evening


Join us Wednesday evenings at 5pm for our Family Dinner. The meal is free -- donations are accepted. Family Dinner is open to all, no membership required.

5 - 6 PM
