SUNDAYS

What to expect.


Walking into a new church can be intimidating and at times terrifying depending on your previous church experience. If you are considering attending one of our worship services, we pray that you would take the vulnerable step and come check it out! We can't fully describe what you will experience, but at least we can try to give you an idea of what to expect.


On a Sunday morning you might see some people in a suit and tie, others in a t-shirt and shorts, and a lot of in between.  We believe that God doesn't expect us to clean ourselves up before we come to him and his church; so we say, come as you are.  Our worship services usually last around 60 minutes and include worship through music, the preaching of God's Word, prayer, and communion.  We also periodically celebrate through believer's baptism.

Services

We offer two worship services; one at 9:00am and the other at 11:15am. Immediately following the first service, coffee and donuts in the lobby offer an opportunity to catch up with each other. Our services aren't strictly structured, meaning there is nothing you need to know or remember. If you have a Bible, bring it, but if you did not bring yours, or don’t have one,  feel free to use the Bible underneath a nearby chair. In fact, if you do not have your own Bible already, take that one home as our gift to you.

 

Music

Our two services are very different, yet share one important element: inviting you to experience the presence of God in worship and challenging you to grow in the grace of God. We refer to our first service as "Modern Worship" and it varies musically from a simple keyboard and guitar to a full rock band. Our 11:15am or "Classic Service" features more traditional elements including choir, organ, creeds, and hymns. 

Children

Midway through each of our services, we dismiss children to go upstairs for Children's Worship, a time of music and teaching just for kids in PreK4-3rd grade. At 10:15am we offer Discipleship Classes for kids of all ages. Our goal in both the classes and in Children's Worship is to teach kids the whole story of the Bible, with each lesson pointing to Jesus as the hero of the story. Nursery is available for our littlest kids, birth-4 years old. We also have a Family Worship Room for nursing mothers and crying infants, where they can still see and hear the service, but not have to worry about noise and privacy.

 

Message

Our messages (sermons) are designed to point you to Jesus as the power of God for changed lives. We tend to run a series of sermons across several weeks, usually steadliy moving through individual books of the Bible. If you happen to come in the middle and want to catch up, feel free to download our past sermons (the button just below will take you to them). We primarily use the English Standard Version (ESV) of the Bible. We also celebrate The Lord's Supper (Communion) on the 1st Sunday of each month and also on special occasions. We do serve both red wine and white grape juice, as well as gluten free bread.

Offering

We take up an offering in every service. Our church is not centrally funded and the finances are the responsibility of church members. If you do not wish to contribute, just let the bag pass by. Many members arrange their giving via electronic means, so a significant portion of the congregation will not be putting anything in the bag.
