WHAT TO EXPECT

The Bible

        

Sic enim dilexit Deus mundum ut Filium suum unigenitum daret ut omnis qui credit in eum non pereat sed habeat vitam aeternam. Omnis enim quicumque invocaverit nomen Domini salvus erit. Et ait faciamus hominem ad imaginem et similitudinem nostram et praesit piscibus maris et volatilibus caeli et bestiis universaeque terrae omnique reptili quod movetur in terra. In principio creavit Deus caelum et terram. Omnis enim quicumque invocaverit nomen Domini salvus erit.

Worship

        

 

We gather for worship every Sunday at 8:30am, 11am, and 4pm. The 4pm service is "mask friendly" and allows for social distancing.  During the summer months, it is held outdoors in the pavilion, weather permitting.

 

Praise and Preparation, in which we sing a few contemporary worship songs, precedes the 11am service and begins around 10:45am.

During the Worship Service, an elder or pastor leads us through the order of worship, as found in the bulletin – be sure to grab one in order to follow along.  Our singing of hymns is normally accompanied by our organist, John Cannon III. 

 

One of our pastors then brings us a sermon.  Most of the year they preach through books of the Bible, though sometimes sermons based on other texts are interspersed.

 

On the first Sunday of each month, following the sermon, we celebrate the Lord’s Supper.

We strive to meet the accessibility needs of our members and visitors! Among other things, we offer:

  • Wheelchair access

  • Large-print bulletins

  • Sound amplification

  • Gluten-free communion bread

Please contact the church office in advance of your visit if you have additional questions.

Sunday School

        

Sunday School for children and adults begins at 9:40 on Sunday mornings.  We offer age-appropriate classes for children age two and up, and several adult classes that change quarterly.

Nursery and Child Care

        

 

Our nursery is open during the 11am worship service, for children up to age four.  In the future we expect to again offer a nursery for children up to age two during Sunday School.

We love to see families worshiping together, so we welcome children of all ages to remain with their parents throughout the worship service. 

We take each child’s safety seriously.  All nursery staff, teachers, and child care volunteers are up-to-date on their state-mandated background checks.

What to Wear

        

 

Dress comfortably!  Many of us wear business casual, but some wear suits, and

others prefer jeans.
