Frequently Asked Questions
What time is worship?
We currently have one worship service which begins at 9:50am on Sunday mornings in our Sanctuary.
What is your worship service like on Sunday?
Of utmost importance is that in our worship, God is worshiped. That is at the heart of what we believe worship to be; it is our opportunity to express our love to God. With this in mind, the worship service at 9:50am is a blended worship service. We have elements of contemporary worship as well as traditional worship. On a typical Sunday, you will be able to worship the Lord with praise and worship music as well as historic hymns. There is a praise band and traditional choir. We typically recite an historic Creed of faith, hear God’s Word read, and our pastor preaches. On the first Sunday of the month, we celebrate Holy Communion as part of our worship.
What should I wear to worship?
Wear what ever you feel comfortable wearing in order to worship the Lord.
What about Children? Are children welcome in worship?
Of course! We love having children in worship. They are such a gift of God. We do provide a cry room just in case you need it. We also provide a fully staffed nursery for your convenience as well.
Do you have other programs on Sunday Mornings for adults?
We do! We have “L.I.F.E.” Groups. A majority of them meet at 8:45am. These adult small groups are where individuals are able to grow in their faith through discussion and learning. Whether our various groups are studying a particular passage in the Bible or a topic related to faith, these groups provide opportunity for growth, community, and accountability. Most of our L.I.F.E Groups meet in our Connection Center. For more information, click here.
Is there Sunday School for children and youth?
Yes! We have a Sunday School program for both children and youth. These also begin at 8:45 am on Sunday mornings. For more information, click here.
