Worship with Us


What is Sunday worship like?

worshipTraditional Service

9:00-10:00 am
The traditional worship service begins with hymn singing and prayer. Our church is well-noted for offering a variety of special music by our chancel choir, children's choir and handbell choir, as well as featuring guest instrumentalists and vocalists. Often, our talented members share their musical gifts with us through solos or ensembles. Following special music is the Scripture reading and sermon. Open Communion is observed once a month and everyone is invited to participate. Worship closes with more hymns and a blessing before we depart to connect, learn and serve through Christ.

Infant and toddler child care (through age 4) is provided in the Nursery.

Casual Service

11:00-12:00 pm
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.

Child care (newborns through 4-years-old) is provided in the Nursery.  Kids' Worship is offered during this service for children 5 years old through 5th grade.
