Worship With Us
Our Worship Service
All are welcome! We invite you to join us for worship on Sunday mornings at 10am, because the best way to experience a community of faith is “in-person”. Our worship service is both recorded and amplified; we are a handicap-accessible church and we provide both nursery care for infants and toddlers and seasonal church school for children. Our choir leads us with spiritually uplifting anthems and hymns sung from both traditional and contemporary sources. Services include prayer and praise, hymns, songs, and choir offerings, scripture reading and sermon-time, as well as time to share our joys and concerns with the gathered body of Christ. You will hear inspired, thoughtful, “real” sermons from our dynamic minister and join with a multi-generational congregation in after-worship fellowship. Communion is offered the first Sunday of each month – alternately by Intinction (coming forward to the table to receive) and through a more traditional mode of Deacon Servers. Lay leadership is welcomed and encouraged. Visitors are too!
We also hold several special services throughout the liturgical year, which are unique and spiritually fulfilling.
Special Worship Services
This list highlights some of the many opportunities we have to learn the story of Jesus Christ and move more deeply into our faith. Yet, there are so many other special services and opportunities for unique worship throughout the year! We invite you to check the church calendar and our newsletter for upcoming events and worship happenings.
