Worship Life

Worship Life
Our mission is to provide space and opportunity for the Holy Spirit to guide and direct conversation with the Triune God. We seek to release and renew the Holy Spirit's work by varying the style and methods of presentation in worship, by collaborating with other ministries and by taking God’s presence beyond our walls. There are opportunities for involvement on art teams, in solos, choirs and ensembles, in dramatic roles, as dancers, caring for the chancel area, serving communion and the list goes on. If you would like more information, please contact Rick Deasley, Director of Worship Life.
