The Doves of Prayze are our expression of Praise and Worship in the church. We unite to sing contemporary praise, traditional praise and acapella praise to the Lord so we can be in an atmosphere of worship before the Word is spoken. We meet on every 2nd and 4th Fridays at 7 pm and sing on 3rd Sundays under the guidance of our Minister of Music, LaContiss Briscoe.
Meeting on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays at 11am-1:00pm, The Soup for the Soul Ministry continues to be one of the strongest ministries of our church.

According to Matthew 25:35-40, we are mandated to provide for one another in the love of Christ.

As stated in the title, ManCave Monday’s are dedicated to the mentorship of young men and those men that have just been released from incarceration that are trying to reconnect to society.

Conversations begin the 1st Monday of every month starting at 7pm. Men, come and be blessed and released from the past and embrace your future.
