Music and More – Worship Arts

At HRC, we incorporate many elements in our worship services to capture the hearts and minds of our members to lead them closer to God. From choirs and vocal ensembles to multi-media presentations to dance and drama to visual elements to instrumentalists, worship at HRC offers many ways for members to be involved and to be inspired.
