Music & Worship Ministry

Shelvin Lamb, Worship Pastor

Worship is multi-faceted.  It is both personal (your time alone with God in prayer, journaling, being still before him) and corporate (as a body of believers.)   We are committed to prepare our people to meet with God in the corporate worship setting.  It is a vital part of our church.  We want to lead the community of believers to appropriately respond to what God is doing.  Worship is a dialogue, and every week we ask "God, what do want to say to your people?"
  • Weekly rehearsals at 7:30pm Wednesdays and once a month on Sunday evenings.
