The sermons connect the powerful teachings of Jesus to today’s world. Holy Communion offered every weekend in all contemporary services.
Worship during 9:29 a.m. and 11:01 a.m. Sunday services is led by eleven eleven, a full contemporary Christian band. Their music is a mixture of current praise and worship songs, as well as original compositions.
