Worship and Music

Worshipping and glorifying God is at the core of who the church is.  Our goal as a ministry is to assist in all the logistics needed for worship experiences (both regular and special services), weddings, funerals, administration of the Sacraments, pulpit supply, ministry of music, greeting of the congregation, and ushering and offering during worship services.
