We gather as people of different backgrounds, callings, personalities, ages, etc... to acknowledge and worship the Living God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit). It is always our joy to welcome newcomers and inquirers and we pledge to not embarrass you or make you stand up. There is no expectation for you to come dressed up or with any prior knowledge. You can participate in the service as you feel comfortable or simply observe. As people make their way into the sanctuary they are given a printed guide to help follow the "Order of Worship."
These are some of the elements in the worship service:
+ Singing the Worship of God
+ Prayers to God (of confession, thanksgiving, and/or petition)
+ Greeting one another
+ Affirmation of the Faith (confessing together using a historic creed)
+ Offerings back to God (in no way an expectation for visitors)
+ Observing the Sacraments (Lord's Supper - 1st and 3rd Sundays and Ocassional Baptism)
+ Hearing God's Word read and preached
The service begins at 11:00am and is typically a hour and fifteen minutes after which all are invited to gather for refreshments and conversation.
In order to enrich the worship experience for both children and parents we provide nursery for children birth through 3 years and an instructional time for children 4 years through 4th grade (read more here).
