The Goal of The Lifesong

The goal of the Lifesong is to help you grow in your relationship with Jesus. Everything we do is centered on that vision. The messages we give, the Bible studies we do together, the songs we sing and our ministries are directed to that goal. No matter where you are with Christ, our desire is for you to draw closer to Him.

What to Expect

What to expect: When you visit The Lifesong, dress casually and comfortable! We are more concerned with meeting your real life needs than with what you wear. It's common to see our folks dressed in T-shirts, jeans and wearing flip flops. We create a friendly, comfortable environment. We won't make you wear a visitor badge, stand up, or stand out in any way. We want you to check us out without being singled out.

The Messages

The messages we offer are relevant to living today. Understand, we think the Bible is just as relevant today as it was when it was written. Our music is exciting and modern. The music is high energy but it is pure worship. The Scriptures tell us to sing and shout and we offer the opportunity.

The Children

The children: We offer two classes for your children. Tater Town is for infants through Kindergarten. We provide you with the comfort of knowing your child is safe. Your child will experience fun and the Word of God as they play, sing and listen to stories of our amazing Lord. The Mark is for children 1st thru 5th grade. We want to prepare them for making a positive mark on the world. The Mark meets at 11:00 AM during the message time of the service. They then join their families for our time of praise and worship.
