Christian worship celebrates, and participates in, what God is doing in the world through Jesus Christ. No matter where you are—spiritually skeptical, curious about Christianity, or a committed follower of Jesus Christ—worship points us to the one who meets the deepest needs of the human heart. In the words of a prayer of St. Augustine (354-430), “You have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.” If you’ve never worshiped with us before, here’s a bit of what to expect:
1. Worship that is both traditional and dynamic. We attempt to combine an appreciation for the richness of church’s liturgical heritage with a vibrancy that is refreshing—especially to those who may have been away from the church for some time. We avoid both uncomfortable novelty and stuffy formality.
2. Worship that is both God-centered and seeker-sensitive. We attempt to combine a transcendent focus on Jesus Christ with a welcoming attitude toward those who are spiritually skeptical or curious. We design our services expecting unchurched people to be present, believing that experiencing God’s presence in our midst will lead many to embrace Christ. We avoid services that either devolve into entertainment or which are simply “preaching to the choir.”
3. Worship that speaks both to the mind and the heart. We attempt to provide services that are both deep and practical, both intellectually challenging and emotionally satisfying. We avoid both barren intellectualism and empty emotionalism.
So join us for worship and expect God to welcome you into his presence through his people.

“In the day-to-day trenches of adult life, there is actually no such thing as atheism. There is no such thing as not worshipping. Everybody worships. The only choice we get is what to worship.”
