The dress is casual, the music upbeat and our praise and worship comes from the heart.
What should I wear?
You will see a wide variety of dress in our congregation, from coat and tie to jeans and t-shirts. Feel free to wear whatever clothes make you feel most comfortable. We care more that you're here, than what you wear.

Will I have to say anything, sign anything or be singled out?
Rest assured that you won't be put on the spot, singled out, or embarrassed. Though we do receive an offering, we don't want anyone to feel obligated to give. We do like to collect some basic information from people in our guest registry, but if you'd prefer not to, that's all right with us.
