Our vision is to lead our church in authentic praise and worship while also creating a community that is filled with the overflowing grace of God. We have midweek and Sunday morning practice to prepare ourselves to lead the praise, and during those times we share together, pray together, and encourage one another.

Our team is very much a close and caring family. I love watching them love and care for each other as we work together to use our gifts to serve Jesus.
