You can attend Tuesday night prayer service or Sunday services at 9am or 12pm - it will be WORTH it. The choir, Pastor Cymbala, the people, the atmosphere - incredible

I'm not a churchy person at all, for reasons that can't simply be communicated totally in a review. Long story short, I feel the church's true purpose is to be an environment where people can talk about God, having known the force for themselves. You...More
