We invite you to join us at 10:45 am in the sanctuary and join the Chancel Ensemble for gathering music. Performing a mix of contemporary praise and traditional hymns played in a modern way, the ensemble can help prepare your hearts & minds for worship. During the summer the Ensemble takes a break and will occasionally provide special music during the service.
Sunday morning service, a traditional style service with contemporary elements, begins at 11 am.
We celebrate Communion together on the first Sunday of every month by Intinction. (The act of dipping the bread into the cup and taking both together). All baptized Christians are invited to share the Lord’s Supper.
