Worship Arts

We recognize that there are many ways to worship our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. "All things were created by God and for God" (Colossians 1:16), so all of our gifts and talents can and should be used to praise our Father in heaven. If God created it, we should try to validate it in our church by turning it back into praise. 

For more information, contact Pastor Kim Brock.
