Our mission is to provide a loving environment in which the Holy Spirit is alive and the word of God is heard. To express the love and grace of Jesus Christ. To nurture disciples who will go into their everyday world and make Christianity tangible.
Our worship is a powerful expression of our faith as a Christian family. Through the spoken word, song and prayer, we offer praise to God and gratitude to Christ for his amazing and gracious love for each of us.

Praise the Lord!
I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart,
in the company of the upright, in the congregation.
Great are the works of the Lord,
studied by all who delight in them.
Full of honor and majesty is his work,
and his righteousness endures forever.
He has gained renown by his wonderful deeds;
the Lord is gracious and merciful.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside still waters;
he restores my soul.
He leads me in right paths for his name’s sake.

Here’s an important rule of communication: The words you use to convey your thoughts do not always elicit the same thoughts in those who hear them.
Take for instance the word “strike.” If you are a bowling enthusiast, “strike” means one thing. If you are talking baseball, it means something quite different. And if you are a fishing enthusiast, it means something else again!

At the end of World War One, the French Army had an unusual problem on its hands: some hundred soldiers suffered from amnesia because of shell shock. In every other way these men were healthy. They just couldn’t remember who they were or where they were from. To make matters worse, because a faulty record system, neither could the French army tell.
Then someone came up the idea of staging an identification rally in Paris. It would be a highly publicized event, and all the families with relatives missing in action would be invited.
