Worship Team Ministry Leader: Kathy Vasquez

We invite you to join us each week as we worship together. Our services begin with upbeat, contemporary praise and worship music. We encourage everyone to participate. Don't worry...we didn't know the songs at first either.  You'll notice that we devote a lot of time to worship. Worship isn't just a filler before the's the reason we come together!   It's a powerful and personal way to connect our hearts with God.

 You'll also notice a lot of variety in how people participate in the worship time: some sit, others stand, some raise their hands. How you respond to God in worship is up to you; all we ask is that you go after God with all your heart, giving Him your very best.
