What to Expect on Sunday

  • A warm welcome, and an opportunity to worship Jesus and connect with others. Wear what's comfortable, and grab coffee and a goodie in our fellowship area.
  • Once inside, our lobby is staffed with friendly faces who are glad to show you to our kids check-in station or to the nearest restroom.  We have two services each Sunday; they last for one hour and can really change your life!
  • We promise we will never single you out or make you feel awkward. We want you to engage with the service at the level you are comfortable; you are welcome to slip in the back and check things out without feeling any pressure to participate.
  • Sunday School for children and adults takes place at 10:00 a.m.
Traditional Worship - 9:00 a.m.

The 9:00 a.m. worship services take place in the Sanctuary and feature choir and organ music. Children are joyfully welcomed in worship.
