Are you checking us out for the first time? Great! Below you will find out a little about what you can expect when you visit us. At Glad Tidings, we want you to feel completely comfortable and at home when you come to church. We know that your first time at a church can be uncomfortable and we want to help you answer some of your basic questions before you even arrive in the parking lot.
When we come together in worship, we seek the face of God, responding to his love and goodness. We prepare our hearts to receive His Word and to fellowship with others. Through dynamic worship we celebrate who Jesus Christ is and all that He does. This brings us into God's presence and enables us to receive all that He wants to say and do in us through the life-changing messages brought to us by our pastors. Through the working of His Word and His Holy Spirit in our lives, we are empowered to reach out to others in loving fellowship.
PRAISE + WORSHIP
Our Praise and Worship has the power to speak to the heart and, at Glad Tidings, we know that the experience of worship prepares the heart to receive the message that God has for you. We focus on creating an upbeat and encouraging worship experience that allows you to worship God in diverse ways each week. Most of all, we seek to experience the Presence of God. In His presence, we are forever changed.
