Adding New Chapters to an Old Story


Sunday morning worship services are held at 8:45 AM and 11:00 AM. Both services have special music, and the later service has a special time with children.


Sometimes, in the summer and on special occasions, we like to remind ourselves that we are one big church family, and we meet together for worship at 10:00 AM.
