Worship – Praising God and being equipped

for God’s service in the world.

When you enter our building, you will notice the warmth of the people. Greeters will welcome you with a worship bulletin at the sanctuary door. All of our services feature scripture reading, preaching, prayer, and music. You will be invited to stand, sing, pray, greet your neighbor, be in silence, or read responsively.

The Lord's Supper or Eucharist is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. Our communion table is open. All are welcome at God's feast because scripture tells us Jesus never turned anyone away from table fellowship with him.

Each Sunday we end our worship with a blessing and sending forth because the reason we gather together is to be sent out again into the world, refreshed in spirit and inspired to become more like Christ.

What kind of music can we expect?

We sing a variety of musical styles from classic church hymns to contemporary choruses. Our hymns and songs are accompanied by our pipe organ and piano. Our adult choir usually will sing an anthem. Occasionally we will have soloists or instrumental music.

Do children participate in the whole worship service?

Children are present for the first part of worship on the second through last Sundays of the month.  After the children's message, they leave for our "Bible Tracks" Christian education class. On the first Sunday of each month, they stay in worship for communion. Children are encouraged to receive the bread and cup.

Do you have childcare during worship?

Children are always welcome in worship. Childcare is available from a nursery attendant for all Sunday services. We offer a warm and welcoming nursery for children under the age of four. Parents sign their children in and are provided with a pager to take into worship.
