Worship

We think worship should touch the head and the heart. We also think it should be interesting, challenging, comforting, fun, traditional, not traditional, contemplative, informal, laugh-out-loud funny, potentially life-changing, and not just a spectator sport. That’s our goal. We can’t do it all every Sunday, of course, but we do think we have great music and powerful preaching to draw us in and send us out.

Our weekly worship service is at 9:30 every Sunday morning. You will hear the adult choir most Sundays (except July and August), and often our children’s choir, senior bell choir, or our other excellent musicians will add to the variety. We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of each month, in addition to special services. We serve open communion, which means everyone is welcome. You do not need to be a member of this church or any church in order to participate.

Come as You Are

Jesus didn’t wear a necktie; you don’t have to, either. But if you enjoy dressing up, go ahead — some of us do. (It sort of depends on what time we got out of bed and whether we had to cook breakfast.) Dress in whatever way makes you comfortable.

Babies, children, and youth

We have nursery care year-round, and Sunday School for children up through 8th grade during the school year. Parents also are welcome to keep their children with them if they prefer. Children usually come into worship with their parents for the beginning and then leave for Sunday school after the children’s sermon. On the second Sunday of each month our senior high youth gather during worship.

We’d Like to Meet You

If you visit, please join us for coffee and refreshments after worship.

Special Needs

Our church is wheelchair-accessible and equipped with audio for those who are hard of hearing. We also have large print bulletins.  If you or your child has special needs, please let us know how we can make worship more accessible for you.
