Worship

Emily - 8-4-2014

Come hear the inspiring sermons given by Rev. Emily Heath

Sundays at 10:00 am  (Sept. to June )*

We join together each week for an approximately one hour-long worship service. In worship we pray for our world, lift up our thanksgivings, share Scripture, hear a sermon, and welcome our youngest members during our children’s lesson.

Each week also features music from our wonderful choir. Once a month our contemporary choir also sings, and each week special pieces ranging from solos to children’s handbell performances are also included.

Holy Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of each months. Baptisms are scheduled by request. On months with a fifth Sunday an intergenerational worship service is offered.

*Summer Worship is held at 9:00 am from mid-June through August.

Accessibility:

Elevator, Wheelchair Ramp, Large-Print Bulletins, Hearing Aids.
