Praise

Worship Team

Our life mission is to stay close to the heart of God.

grace

God's transforming grace is at the heart of everything we do -- it is why we exist and it empowers all that we do [Ephesians 2:4-10]

worship

Investigating and responding to God's great love for us by building a loving, growing relationship with Him. [Romans 12:1-2]

family

Doing life together. Each of us is designed to do the Jesus-centered life together -- not apart or alone. [Matthew 12:46-50; John 1:12]

Praise and worship is an expression of love and gratitude toward an Almighty God. At Awake Christian Church, we count it a privilege to be a part of such a great weekly celebration to give God all that we are. We invite you to celebrate with us.
Rejoice with your voice, reflect with your heart, renew your mind, revive your spirit.
