We gather for worship on Sundays at 10 a.m. during the school year (9:30a in summer). Our service includes time for singing, prayer, encountering the scriptures, and a message (sermon) from one of our pastors. We share in the Lord’s Supper (Communion) on the 1st Sunday of each month. Free infant care is available in the nursery (Room 7) each Sunday. Children start off in worship, then leave for their classes after about 20 minutes, often after a “Time for Children” led by a pastor.
Whoever you are, wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here!”
See you this evening if you can get to church. It’s wet and slippery. Snow is heavy. Be careful out there.
Food for Body, Mind and Spirit – 3 consecutive Wednesdays – January 11th, 18th & 25th. From 6:30 – 7:30 pm, there is special programming for all ages.
