What do you have for adults?

We have a full range of opportunities for adults at all stages of life to meet together on Sundays and throughout the week.

What style of music do you play?

Our interactive worship services offer a wide range of music.  Mostly gospel style (Fred Hammond, Donald Lawrence, etc.), but we enjoy contemporary worship too. Each week we engage praise and worship with our praise team, praise dancers, and choir. Find out more about our Worship Ministry.

What should I wear?

We welcome everyone to come as they are. However, our ministry has a business-casual environment. On Sundays you’ll find most men and women dressed casually, while others maybe be fully dressed up. Whatever you’re wearing, we’ll be glad to see you!
