Worship

Live in-person worship is paused during the Coronavirus pandemic. Worship will be posted on Sunday at 10 am (link will be included).  

 
 
 
 
Lively and meaningful worship that deepens our relationship with God and with fellow believers is a hallmark of our tradition. Worship is Christ-centered praise and adoration.  Through worship, we are enriched by the beauty of music, encouraged by the Bible, drawn close to God through prayer, as we receive renewal and empowerment from Christ’s Spirit
Communion, a time when we receive symbols of Jesus’ presence in our lives, and through which we become the body of Christ in the world, is a vital part of worship. We celebrate Holy Communion on the First Sunday of each month at both services. Since Christ is the host of the meal, all persons who are part of the larger family of Jesus, without regard to denominational affiliation, or to any of the wonderful ways in which God has made us different and distinct from each other, are invited to receive. Children are invited to participate with families for communion.
First Service Worship
Sunday 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
 
 
 
 
At 9:00 a.m. every Sunday, we gather in the sanctuary for our modern service of worship. Dress is casual. The band plays music with a pop-rock flair. All ages are welcome to participate in the praise elements of worship. A special message is shared with the children and youth, and then they are invited to get deeper in the Word in church school classes designed especially for their abilities and questions. At the conclusion of the service, parents meet their children at the classrooms.

The Praise Band leads the music for the early worship service, featuring contemporary Christian music with guitar, bass, and drums.
