  • Great is Your faithfulness oh God

    You wrestle with the sinner's heart

    You lead us by still waters into mercy

    And nothing can keep us apart

    Your grace is enough

    Your grace is enough

    Your grace is enough for me

    Great is Your love and justice God

    You use the weak to lead the strong

    You lead us in the song of Your salvation

    And all Your people sing along

    Your grace is enough

    Your grace is enough

    Your grace is enough for me ~ Chris Tomlin

  • A Word About Worship.

    You are welcome here. Really. You are among friendly people who care, who arent perfect, but are on a journey of faith. If You are a guest, we dont expect

    You to give an offering; if You wish to do so, were grateful. Join us for refreshments downstairs after worship. We hope You are blessed by being here, and that Youll come again! KID CONNECTION welcomes all children! Come up front for the childrens time; parents welcome, too! Then join the group and head downstairs after the childrens song. Children will rejoin us for the closing song. Feel free to accompany your child downstairs and then return for the message once they are settled. Toddlers are welcome in our toddler area downstairs; we also have a baby station just outside the sanctuary at the back, where babes and little ones can move around, and parents can still see and hear the service.

    Washrooms are at the back entry and in the downstairs hall; baby change stations are located in the back entry washroom and just off the front entryway.

    We have hearing assistance devices available. Just ask a greeter or the staff at the sound booth at the back.

    Orange juice and bottled water are available on the back table by the front entry door.
