Worship Service at 10AM
The morning worship service has been our traditional service since 1872. Each service is focused around a sermon prepared by our minister and supplemented by God’s gift of music. This service includes the Chancel Choir who lead all the hymns and sing an anthem selected by the music director. Expect awesome music and an inspirational message with a family atmosphere. Early in our worship service, a short children’s message is given and the children are invited to exit the sanctuary after the message and attend Children’s Church ages 5 to 10 years. Childcare for young children is provided in the nursery for ages 0 to 4.
Nursery is provided during worship service.
Youth, Teen, and Adult Sunday School begins at 11:15am immediately following our worship service. Childcare for young children is provided in the nursery.
In worshipping with us you are likely to find dresses, suits and ties as well as jeans, t-shirts and shorts. What you can be certain of is that you are welcome to join us in the attire which feels comfortable for you.
We have ample parking available surrounding our church. You will be able to easily find our front entrance.
Our Worship Services typically last about an hour, but can run a little longer on special celebration Sundays. We recommend arriving early to find a seat you’re comfortable in and meet a few folks before service begins.
