All Are Welcome To Our Worship Services

 

Join us at Our 9:00 or 10:30 am Services

Our faith community is centered in worship. We are known for the wide variety of music that’s presented on Sunday mornings, even within a single service, creating a truly blended worship experience. We are a thinking congregation that doesn’t require you to check your brain at the door when you walk in. Worship sermons are intelligent and engaging; they may challenge you, give you pause and make you laugh. Our hope is that ultimately they help sustain you on the journey.

Nursery care is available at both the 9:00 and 10:30 am services during the program year and at the 9:30 am service in the summer months.

Three- and four-year-olds listen to Bible stories from both the Old and New Testaments echoing the curriculum of the K-2nd and 3-5th graders. An activity or craft reinforces the story and community is nurtured during playtime and snacks. Join us in the nursery during our 9:00 am worship service and during 10:30 am worship, in our preschool room, on our lower level, across from the restrooms .

Church school for K-5th grade is available during the 10:30 am service mid-September-May and at the single summer service at 9:30 am May-mid-September. Children begin in worship in the sanctuary and leave during Passing of the Peace to meet with leaders in the Narthex (back of the church).

Confirmation is available for 6th-8th grade students during the 10:30 am service mid-September-May.

We offer a Sunday morning high school discussion group at 10:30 am mid-September-May, where youth can wrestle with historic Christian faith and discuss the theological questions they really want to ask. Additionally, these young people can continue to explore their faith while serving the children of our church through activities such as serving as a teaching team member, being a song leader, helping on the tech team and taking photographs for use in various church communications.

Nursery care for infants and toddlers continues during the summer; preschoolers continue to have class for the entire worship service in the Preschool Classroom on the lower level; kids entering kindergarten through high school age begin in 9:30 am (single summer service) worship and leave during passing of the peace. Children may join their current grade level over the summer, or join their new (fall) grade level, wherever they feel the most comfortable.  On the first Sundays of the month, 1st – 12th grades remain for the entire worship service for Communion Sundays, while preschool & Kindergarten have class in Starlight Cinema.

Keep Hope Alive

Keep Hope Alive By Rev. Seth Ethan Carey As I awoke yesterday morning, I consciously wondered if I should read the news. I had a bad feeling, one born of experience rather than clairvoyance. And there it was in my newsfeed – Worst Mass Shooting in U.S. History – just as I knew it would
