The worshiping community is the life-blood of a congregation. It is in worship where we both tell and hear again the story of God’s mighty acts of salvation. It is a story that spans across history, a story that tells how, from the beginning of time, God and humanity have encountered one another. We both tell and hear this remarkable story through the hymns we sing, the scriptures read, preached and proclaimed, the prayers prayed, the creeds recited, the sacraments embraced. It is essential that this story be both proclaimed and heard; for, in doing so, we as a community of believers are reminded “who” we are (children of God) and “whose” we are (we belong to God).
8:45 am Worship - This early service is a far less formal service than the 10:50 service. We’ll sing the traditional hymns of the faith, some of the old-time gospels, and throw in some of the more contemporary songs of the day. This service is held in the sanctuary so everyone is encouraged to sit close to the front and the center aisle. Holy Communion is offered the first Sunday of each month. Attire is casual.
10:50 am Worship - This is the “late” service and considered the main worship service on Sunday. It is described as the “formal” or “liturgical” or “traditional” service. Our Adult Chancel Choir, along with exceptional piano and organ accompaniment brings out the very best in congregational hymn singing. Attire is casual to Sunday best!
