  • Giving

    A. Our church is operated through the tithes and offerings of its members. Each service our church family is given an opportunity to give back to God in support of the ministry. This is not a time of pressured involvement rather a cheerful celebration of HIS goodness to us. All offerings are a matter of free-will giving by the members and our guests need not feel obligated to give.

    Feel free to join in song or dance. Freedom to praise and focus on God is the order of the day.

Church's worshippers are ministered to by the inspired voices of The Mass Choir (1st Sunday), Ministry With Purpose (MWP - 3rd & 4th Sundays), The Youth Choir (2nd Sunday) and the Male Chorus (5th Sunday).
