During Sunday morning worship services, we come as people from various backgrounds and with various viewpoints and beliefs, but we always gathered as a community of faith in Christ.
Our weekly services at 8:30 and 11 am from August to May include heartfelt liturgies, a time of prayer, congregational singing, scripture readings and a sermon. The Holy Sacrament of Communion is observed on the first Sunday of each month. And Baptisms occur throughout the year when families make their request to a pastor and Session.
In February, our High School Youth plan and lead both worship services for Youth Sunday.
During the summer months of June-July, we transition to one worship service at 10 am followed by an all-ages, creative and interactive church school hour at 11 am.
Currently we are in the season of Advent (Dec. 2 through Dec. 24), a time in which we prepare with anticipation for the arrival of the Christ-child. We invite you to “Draw Near” to God in worship and ministry this season:

Also, the “Draw Near” Advent devotional books, made by A Sanctified Art, are available in both the coffee area and the narthex. Pick one up when you are worshipping with us and take home to share with your family. Each book contains a special bookmark with various ways you can mark the Advent season with prayer, art, action, candle lighting, scripture reading and hymn singing.
God, draw us near, so that we may see: Jesus is here and his love is for me. Amen.
