Our Services and How We Worship
We encourage the youth of our church to take a regular and active role in the worship service, including music, a message just for kids, skits, even occasional puppet shows.
Come on Sunday at 10:30am and worship in a service of singing and instrumental music, praying, reading, and reflecting. Our modern, light-filled sanctuary is a safe place, open to all seekers. There is no dress code. Dress in whatever manner you are most comfortable – lots of us prefer casual attire. You may expect to hear spirit-filled music, spontaneous sharing of both joys and concerns, and messages that you can relate to your daily life. A staffed nursery is available for little ones under age five during the 10:30am service. Our sanctuary, fellowship areas, and restrooms are easily accessible for those with mobility challenges.
Communion is served on the first Sunday of the month at 10:30am. All are welcome to partake in the sacraments. Non-alcoholic and gluten-free options are available in addition to traditional wine and bread.
On the second Sunday of each month, our service includes a time of peaceful meditation during which those who wish to share personal concerns with the pastor may come forward for anointing and Healing Prayer.
Following the morning service, there is a time of fellowship, coffee, and refreshments in our Fireside Room. Our members love to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries!
We often feature unique musical and cultural themes, such as Dixieland Gospel for Mardi Gras, Valentines Day love songs, Irish/Celtic sounds for St. Patrick's Day, songs of our national heritage for Independence Day, Labor Day work ballads, Psalms of Lament for Lent, and anthems of gratitude on the Sunday before Thanksgiving Day. Each week our talented music team chooses appropriate selections that support and enhance the message and scripture.
Our services are led by our pastor with participation of lay members in various aspects of worship, including reading scripture lessons, prayers, special music, offerings and communion. At least one service each year is completely planned and led by our lay members.
