CHANGES TO WORSHIP AT THE PRESENT TIME (as of March 15, 2020)
With the intention of preventing the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19), we have moved all our worship services and meetings online and through the mail. This is one simple way we follow the commandment to love the Lord our God and love our neighbors as ourselves.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT A WORSHIP SERVICE (when in-person worship resumes)
Our worship style is warm and intimate, with value placed on beloved music and liturgy. On any given Sunday you'll be as likely to hear a guitar rendition of "I'd Rather Have Jesus" by George Beverly Shea, as our organ leading the congregation in the stirring hymn "God of Grace and God of Glory."
You'll usually find the congregation dressed in something approximating business casual, but everyone should wear what makes them feel comfortable.
Children are welcome to stay in the worship service with their parents or guardians. We love the curiosity and participation of children in worship, and children and youth occasionally read scripture and assist in other parts of the liturgy. Our pastor leads a brief moment of education and prayer with children during the service. Alternatively, a staffed nursery is available.
THE CELEBRATION OF THE SACRAMENTS
Communion is served in the pews on the first Sunday of every month. We serve juice as part of this sacrament. Anyone who seeks the Lord Jesus Christ is welcome to receive this sacrament.
We baptize infants during worship by sprinkling water from the font, as the congregation welcomes them into the family and fellowship of the church. (Adults are more than welcome to be baptized, but we recognize earlier baptisms and do not require another in order for an adult to join our membership.)
