Our members and guests find our worship services to be inviting, fulfilling, comforting, joyous and meaningful.

Music is the soul of our worship; bringing joy, personal insight and a sense of community to our prayers.

Our services are filled with a variety of music and prayers, including contemporary and traditional melodies, to satisfy the spiritual needs of our congregants. We believe that this diversity creates a beautiful worship experience in an environment inspiring full and spirited congregational participation.
