Each Sunday morning, we offer two different worship services. The message is the same; however, the format is different.
At 8:30am we have a "traditional" worship service. This service uses hymns, an organ or piano, and is especially interactive with liturgies spoken between the leaders and the worshipers. We open with a prelude, call to worship, opening prayer and hymn; We share joys and concerns, pray as a congregation, collect a morning offering and sing a hymn as we prepare to hear God's word; A sermon rooted in scripture but related to our current reality is shared; and we close each week with a hymn and postlude.
At 11:00am we encounter God through a "contemporary" worship experience. This service is filled with recent Christian worship songs and has a very relaxed atmosphere. We open with worship songs, have prayer and offering, a sermon rooted in scripture but related to our current reality, and close with worship songs. Our altar rail is always open as worship closes for those who wish to pray down in front.
Both services offer Children's Church which provides those ages 5 and under and opportunity to learn music and crafts that tie in with the day's message. Nursery care is also available.
For those that are hard of hearing or that could benefit from larger texts, we offer large-print hymnals and assistive hearing devices. Please check with an greeter and they will assist you.
