Worship Services

We offer two worship services on Sunday mornings. Our contemporary service is at 9:00 AM and the traditional service is at 10:30 AM. The Lord's Supper is celebrated in both services every 1st Sunday. Children are always welcome in worship and a nursery is available for children not yet in 3rd grade. In addition, look at our worship schedule during the seasons of Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter.

9 AM Contemporary Service

Begins January

Although its foundation and theology are identical to our traditional service, our contemporary service looks and sounds a lot different. Join us at 9 Am for worship with praise choruses, updated hymns and songs led by our Praise and Media teams.

10:00 AM Summer Traditional Service

10:30 AM Traditional Service

If you prefer something a bit more traditional, join us for our spirited traditional service where you will enjoy traditional hymns and our Chancel Choir. More relaxed and informal during our summer schedule.


Dress casual or...

The first thing you'll notice about us is that we are not a strictly suit and tie church.  Certainly some people feel more comfortable dressing in a more formal manner, and that is just great.  But you'll also see people in shorts, sandals and jeans; you name it, we have it.  We are not concerned with how you dress; we are delighted that you are getting involved.

What about money?

For a while, let the collection plate pass you by.  We believe that an important part of our worship is joyfully giving to the Lord.  If you choose to join our church family or become a regular attendee, you can join us in the joy of giving back to God a small part of the time, talent and treasure that God has given us.

What about the Lord's Supper?

The Lord's Supper (also called Communion or the Holy Eucharist) is celebrated on the 1st Sunday of every month.  We celebrate it using the method of intinction which means that everyone is invited to come up and take a piece of bread and dip it into the communion cup.  If you are unable to come forward and wish to participate, elders will bring the bread and cup to you.  We invite all who feel the call of Jesus Christ to participate.
