Affirmative WORSHIP

Worship is job one for a Christian. Countryside is known for it's inspiring music in worship, and our clergy are committed to bringing positive messages that apply scriptures to life in a relevant, life-affirming way. And the congregation at worship seeks to extend a spirit of welcome!

We provide quality child care during our morning worship services, as well as invite children & their families to stay for Sunday Small Groups (Sunday School).

Join us this Sunday at 8:30, 9:45 & 11:00am - we can't wait to see you!
