What are your services like?
A typical service on Sunday mornings consists of a time of praise and worship music, some announcements, maybe a video, and a teaching time usually by our pastor, David Yarborough. More information can be found on our Service Info page.
Our praise and worship time is a blend of mostly contemporary with occasional hymns. Typical songs we play are by artists such as Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Brian and Jen Johnson, Tim Hughes, and Hillsong. Our “style” fits in with these artists as well.
We use video when appropriate and fitting to the message. They include testimonies, sketches, and teaching-helps. See some here on our video page.
Our teaching is in series format, meaning we group several unique sermons together to present an overall topic. You can view our current series here.
We publish our sermons online and on CD. Listen, download, or podcast here. CD’s can be purchased in the church office during the week or in the Atrium Resource Center on Sunday Mornings.
