Visiting

What to Expect

Visit Us This Sunday

We host a contemporary worship service at 9am, led by a praise band with guitar and drums.
We host a traditional worship service at 11am, with music led by a choir and organ.

When you visit, there will be a place to pick up or make a name tag, and an usher will provide you with a bulletin. Or, you can follow along with the service on the projection screens. Some people wear a dress or jacket and tie, while others come jeans and t-shirts. Come as you are. All are welcome.

Over the course of an hour, a service begins with greeting each other, singing, a children’s message, readings of scripture, prayers and a message of encouragement. During the contemporary service, children are free to attend Sunday School after the children’s message and are picked up during the fellowship time.

Communion is offered on the first Sunday of every month. You do not need to be a member of any church to share in worship and to participate in the sacraments of communion or baptism. Bread is broken and given, and you may choose either to dip the bread in a common cup or to pick up an individual server.
