Worship

Sundays at 10:00 am10527302_10100630931400258_2325205861572699318_n

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.
