As believers we know that we will spend eternity worshiping God. My prayer is that our worship here is practice for that and that we will encounter the Living God in each worship service.

We gather at both traditional and contemporary services to honor and glorify God, hear the Word boldly preached, pray, and join together as one to praise Him in song. That "song" includes congregational singing, worship bands, organ, brass, bells, adult and children's choir, drama and orchestra as we seek to give Him the glory. One day, "every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord". Until that day... Soli Deo Gloria! (To God Alone be the Glory!)

I look forward to seeing you in worship!

Julie Carter
