Worship nights are essentially an extension of our weekend worship experiences.

This is also a time where we will introduce new songs for our congregation. This will be our Christmas Worship night this year so we invite you to one of two services, 5 pm and 7 pm. Bring your family and friends to share in the celebration of Christ. Childcare through age three is provided, so don't miss it!

Re|engage examines God’s design for marriage and applies principles from the Bible to guide couples towards growth in their relationship with each other. Participants can also expect to receive encouragement by hearing stories from other couples that have experienced victory in the midst of hard times. Participants are also placed in a small group with a facilitator and other couples to work through a 16-lesson curriculum.  For more information click here. Child care is only available ages 0-3.
