Our Worship Service

People of all ages, abilities, ethnicities, family statuses, economic conditions, gender identities, sexual orientations, and cultural origins gather each Sunday morning at 10:00 to worship God. No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here. There is no dress code or any other code. Come as you are.

Due to the Covid19 pandemic, we now conduct worship services via Zoom. To attend please register here

Worship services have a traditional feel with a progressive content. They usually include:

  • Contemporary and traditional hymns with lyrics for those who want to sing along.
  • A sermon based on Biblical insights applied to the needs of today’s world and our lives.
  • Shared prayer.
  • Communion, because everyone is welcome at Jesus’ table (you don’t need to be a member of our church or any church to participate) Have something to eat and drink to participate.
  • A time of fellowship via randomized break-out rooms follows the worship service. People get to meet and have fellowship with different church members each week.
Whether you are visiting, attending with a friend or relative, searching for a church home, or seeking answers to life’s questions, we are glad to have you join us.
