THE 5TH MVMNT WORSHIP NIGHT
 

The purpose of the 5th MVMNT night is: Reveal ... Respond ... Worship. We believe in the need and importance of the community of Christ lifting praise and adoration to our deserving King. Worship is more than an action; it's an identity. With that in mind, the 5th MVMNT was born out of our desire to collectively lift one heart, one offering and one passion to our Father through the praise that dwells within us. Come with anticipation as we present our offering to the LORD through song.

  • SUNDAY 11.30.14 @ 7:00pm - 9:00pm
  • Held in the Worship Center
