Sunday Morning Worship Experiences
Sunday morning at General Assembly is a time where we get to spread out over the city and participate in the local churches and ministries in the area. Historically, the youth and families have been segregated into their own worship. This time, however, the youth, young adults, children and families are spreading out in a variety of ways to show that ONE MEANS ONE.
Your group can go ANYWHERE to worship! We invite you to stay connected through social media throughout the services. We want you to share quotes, photos, memories, and more as you experience various worships with your group and with others. (You get to really participate and learn from more than one experience.)
Worship Opportunities - Information will be updated.
