Sunday Worship Service
Focus of Worship
We meet at 10:30 each Sunday morning at 3151 East FM 518(Deke Slayton HWY)in League City, TX. Our worship service on Sunday morning is intentionally focused on celebrating God and giving him praise, glory, and honor through joyful music, heart-felt prayer, and the reading and teaching of His Word in a relevant, applicable message. At the same time, we want the person who is exploring the claims of Christianity or seeking to know more about God to have the opportunity to do that in an atmosphere that is welcoming and open to their questions and needs. Here's what you can expect in a typical worship service that usually lasts about one hour.

Message This Month
We are working our way through the book of Ephesians. It is one of the four Epistles written by Paul from his Roman jail. Ephesis was a most important city in Asia Minor (Turkey) and a center of commecial trade. It boasted a pagan temple dedicated to the Roman goddess Diana. It was important to Paul to evangelize this area of the country and in such an important town. Paul wanted the Ephesians to know God's goals for the His church and the steps toward that fulfillment; unity among His people. However it demanded a totally different way of life than the Ephesians had without Christ.
From this letter you get a magnificent view of biblical truth: God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the church, the means of salvation, our position in Christ, our practice as Christians, marriage, family, and spiritual warfare. Like standing on a mountain top you will be able to see magnificent views of biblical truth in Paul's letter. Join us in this journey to the mountain top.
