Traditional Worship

8:15 am and 11:00 am

Our traditional service is at 11:00 am in the sanctuary.  August through May we have an 8:15 am service held in the chapel.  

Every Sunday we glorify God through rich liturgy, beautiful choral and instrumental music, and powerful Biblically-based sermons. All are welcome in this friendly atmosphere where you will feel at home, surrounded by people of faith of all ages and backgrounds. Worship bags for children, large print Bibles, hymnals, and bulletins, as well as a T-Coil hearing loop, are available in the sanctuary. 

Children are always welcome. We believe that worship is the response of the whole people of God, and that includes children! Children are invited to participate in Children’s Moment at the beginning of our 11:00 am service. Worship Packets with children’s bulletins, coloring pages, activities, and crayons are also available in the back of the sanctuary.

As a part of our ministry with children, we also provide childcare for infants up through kindergarten from 8:30 am – noon. Childcare is located behind the sanctuary.

Contemporary Worship

9:00 am

Our New Song contemporary service is a lively mix of ages led by the New Song team in a casual setting in the fellowship hall at 9:00 a.m. every Sunday morning. You will experience a pastoral message which helps you praise God in a variety of ways.

We believe that worship is the response of the whole people of God – and that includes children! Children are always welcome in worship here. However, if your family should need it, we have childcare for infants to kindergartners. Immediately following the “Children’s Moment” in the worship service, children ages two through five may be taken to the nursery, located behind the sanctuary.

A children's worship station is loaded with books, Bible coloring pages, quiet activities, crayons, gel pens, and paper.
