Our congregation gathers weekly for worship and we hope you feel welcome and comfortable. When you arrive, please take a few minutes to introduce yourself to the greeters so they can answer any questions you may have and welcome you to our fellowship.

Worship Services
Currently we offer three worship services:

  • Sunday 9:30 am – traditional service
  • Sunday 11:00 am – blended/contemporary service
  • Saturday 5:00 pm – casual service

We strive to keep our worship services fresh and welcome feedback on how we can improve. Coffee and donuts are available before both Sunday services in the Narthex with ample seating to socialize and meet new people. We welcome you to participate in the service where you feel most comfortable.

Notes Regarding the Worship Services:

  • You will receive a bulletin with the order of the service, announcements, and the names of the worship leaders.
  • The worship leaders will enter the sanctuary during the prelude. This is a time to listen to the music and prepare for worship through prayer or reflection.
  • We offer Open Communion. The United Methodists believe that God’s table is open to all people regardless of religion, church affiliation, or personal beliefs. All are welcome to feast with God.
  • At the conclusion of worship, the pastor and other worship leaders will remain in the rear of the sanctuary for conversation.

Accessibility & Assistance
Ushers are available to assist you at any time. Please move to the rear of the sanctuary and an usher will come to you. If you are unable to leave your seat, please ask a neighbor to get help or motion to an usher.

An elevator is available to access all floors of the church.

Sunday School
Children are welcome to attend the worship services, but we also offer several Sunday School classes at 9:30 am for children and youth. Adult Sunday School classes are offered at 11:00 am.
