It is our desire that the elements of our service be God-centered & Gospel-exalting. We believe that the purpose of worship is to exalt and glorify the one true God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Sunday Morning worship is the pinnacle of the week as a local church body. We assemble to lift our adoration to the one true God while hearing His word read, preached, and sung. The music we choose for our worship service is content driven and not by musical style. During our services we sing the richness of songs sung throughout generations of the church with a contemporary expression. We desire that when one leaves the worship service they consider the truths we sung not how the music was done. Our worship service will also included the reading of scripture (a Psalm and both Old and New Testament readings) with responsive readings from the Gospels or Psalms. Pastor Chris preaches expositionally through various books of the Bible.
Sunday Evenings are much more casual. Two main elements of Sunday evening worship are Light to the Nations, a mission prayer emphasis, and New City Catechism, which follows teaches through the basics of Christian doctrine. The teaching time utilizes Powerpoint, commentary from church history, video, Pastor Chris' instruction, and interaction to unfold the work of God throughout scripture and the world.
