We worship through the reading of God’s Holy Word, prayer, obedience, giving, service, and yes, weworship through music. We worship using the human voice and with all sorts of wonderful instruments.

God is doing incredible things through our senior adults. There are many activities to join. If you want to know more, just ask one of them. One major area of ministry is theGolden Harvest choir.

travel to an area nursing home on our rotation schedule.
