Word of mouth is how the good news of Jesus and the Gospel transformed the world. We’ve been hearing a lot of good news and appreciation from our members and those who have been visiting. Here are just some of the statements, organized under each of our five areas of ministry:

Worship

  • We have four uniquely beautiful worship services.
  • We worship with beautiful music using a variety of instruments and voices.
