What to Expect

Services - What Can I Expect?

Our 90 minute Sabbath worship service begins with the blowing of the shofar (ram's horn) as a call to worship. We then begin a period of vibrant Messianic praise music. This is followed by a recitation of the Sh'ma (Deut. 6:4) in Hebrew and English and the reading of a brief portion of Torah (the five books of Moses). The portion of Torah is bracketed by Hebrew and English blessings and followed by the recitation of V'ahavta (Deut. 6:5 and following). The service continues with additional Messianic praise music. The sermon serves as the centerpiece of the morning and is punctuated by the traditional closing Aaronic benediction, in Hebrew and English.

Attire - What Should I Wear?

For worship services, we request everyone dress with modesty and respect. We suggest business casual attire as a reference point. A few men choose to wear a yarmulke or kippah (head cover) and tallit (prayer shawl), but most do not.

Children's Program - What About My Children?

Our congregation is family friendly and welcomes children of all ages, encouraging them to participate in various parts of the service. Currently because our youth program is still growing, we combine grades K-6, but tailor the teaching to the age of the children in the class. Our teachers have served in this capacity for 30 years and are especially talented in this area
