Part of the Northside Worship Ministry, ENGAGE is an instrumental worship experience that meets once or twice a month on Saturday at 5 p.m. Check the dates on our Events page and come join us for our next ENGAGE contemporary praise service.

I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul makes its boast in the Lord; let the humble hear and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. (Psalm 34:1–3)

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. (Psalm 150)
