Sunday Service with Childrens Church

What to Expect

Worship Service starts at 9:15 AM and typically ends by 10:30 AM. It is a blend of traditional and contemporary features -- and encompasses Children's Church, sharing a portion of time together. Communion is served on the first Sunday of the month as part of the Worship Service.

Uplifting music and singing are an important part of our service. In addition to hymns, we enjoy a special performance from some of our Music Ministries (handbell choir, guitar, and adult choir). We also take time to share our joys and concerns with our church family to be lifted up in prayer. 

Each Sunday we recognize first-time visitors and give them a church mug as a memento.  We also recognize birthdays and anniversaries by collecting a $1 donation for each celebration that pays for a special cake shared the last Sunday of the month as part of the Fellowship Luncheon. 

Immediately following the Worship Service, we enjoy snacks and social time in the Fellowship Hall. Adult Sunday School overlaps fellowship time — starting at 10:45 AM — except on the last Sunday of the month when we have a covered-dish fellowship luncheon. 

Note that Adult Sunday School and the Fellowship Luncheon have not yet resumed.
