Just went to the 29th annual spectacular last evening. A cast of over 400 put on a patriotic show that is good for all ages. Music, singing, video..... A tribute to America.

Two shows: 4:30 & 7:30. FREE, but advance tickets needed. Suggest you check their web site in mid June next year.

Get your tickets early if you want to see this incredible Christmas Production. There is a lot of seats, but this is very popular during the Christmas Season. A great place for Sunday Morning as well.

While not the formal music of a "high church" service, the choir and congregational worship is just terrific on an every Sunday basis. Depending on your church background, the church size intimidates some people, but I promise the music quality minimizes any such discomfort.

Fine if you are into huge churches. The pastor is very good and it is televised each week. I feel like I am lost in a crowd there but they do many things for the public and people I know who belong love it. Parking is a painful experience.

We were out of town on a youth group trip and decided to stop for service at this church on Sunday. The church is huge and beautiful! The service is very formal, we're not used to that. They have a big choir and 3 floors of seating. The service was good, the Pastor gave a great message. It was about 1.5 hours long with 2 baptisms and baby dedications. People seemed friendly.

I LOVE that they have a whole sign language section with an interpreter. It was neat to see that. I think more churches should offer that.

Tip: dress up. Everyone was in dresses and suits. Our church is way more casual, so we wore jeans and t-shirts and we were WAY under dreessed.
