Our worship services feature blended music. We sing and use praise and worship as well as hymns. We feel it important to provide a balanced service that ministers to believers of all ages. The most important element of music for us is that the music says the right things and helps us worship God in spirit and in truth.

People are not required to use any particular version of the Bible. Our Pastor normally reads from the NIV during his message and he uses other versions to prepare his message.
