LIVE STREAMING!
Beginning Sunday (September 26), we will no longer broadcast the Praise and Worship portion of our service.

The service will begin with the pre-announcements followed immediately by the sermon.
 
So please be sure to tune in to our YouTube channel, and Facebook when you receive notification that we are “live-streaming.” And in case you miss the live stream, all of our previous services can be found on our YouTube channel!
