Mission Statement: We at Drakes are called to be fishers of men and to love the least of these so that all may have more abundant lives.

Our Worship Service:

A typical worship service looks something like this:

The Doxology  
  Praise God, from whom all blessings flow. Paise God; praise him all creatures here below; praise him above, ye heavenly host; praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.

We are not heavy in liturgy, but we do believe in some structure and stating what we believe. The setting is not formal, and the children's sermon are sometimes quite energetic so as to reach the precious young ones in way they can be reached.
