Worship

Adding new chapters to an old story

Sunday morning worship services are held at 8:30 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.

Evening Prayer

Evening Prayer

Celebrating the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper is vital to our lives as Jesus' followers. To make the observance of the sacrament available to as many of our members as possible during this unusual time we are providing a weekly online Prayer and Eucharist service. Brian and Holly will be reflecting on a portion of the scripture passage for the week from the Gospel of Luke churchwide book study. The link is available each Wednesday evening on the home page of the church website.
