Traditional Service

9:00-10:00am
The traditional worship service begins with a call to worship followed by a hymn, prayer time, special music, Scripture reading, sermon, presentation of offerings, closing hymn, and a  blessing/benediction before we depart to connect, learn and serve. Our church is well-noted for offering a variety of special music by the chancel choir, hand bell choir, guest vocalists and instrumentalists as well as our own talented members who share their musical gifts with us through solos or ensembles.

Communion is observed the first Sunday of the month.  This is open communion as everyone is invited to participate, no pre-requirements.

Childcare (infants through preschool) is provided in the Nursery.

Casual Service

11:00-12:00pm
This casual service is conversational and comfortable, yet Christ-centered and biblical. A worship band provides contemporary music for all to sing along and actively engage in worship. Video clips, skits or interactive discussion are sometimes included with the teaching segment of the service. Open Communion through use of individual cups and wafers is a special part of every Casual service. More singing with the band wraps up the worship before we depart to connect, learn and serve through Christ.

Childcare (infants through preschool) is provided in the Nursery.  Kids' Worship is offered during this service for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade.
