We gather with the purpose of focusing our eyes and lives on the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We worship through music, prayer, the reading and preaching of God's Word, fellowship and communion as a means of celebrating and remembering the good news of Jesus Christ's life, death, and resurrection. We invite you to participate with us as we gather for corporate worship. If you're skeptical or unsure about Christianity, we invite you to come with questions, doubts, concerns, and see what it looks like for the church to gather together.
