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

        

 

Every Sunday morning we gather for Praise and Preparation at 10:40 and a traditional Worship Service at 11. 

 

During Praise and Preparation, a praise team leads the congregation in singing contemporary worship songs from composers like Keith Getty, Matt Redman, and Indelible Grace. 

 

Afterwards, our Worship Service begins.  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 second and fourth Sundays of months during the school year, children up to first grade may attend “Kids in Training” during the sermon, for a lesson tailored to them on how and why we worship God.

 

Once a 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 9:30 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

        

 

A nursery is available for children up to age two during Sunday School, and up to age four during the worship service. 

 

We love to see families worshiping together, so we welcome children of all ages to remain with their parents throughout the worship service.  During the school year, on the second and fourth Sundays of the month, we offer “Kids in Training” during the sermon for children up to first grade, during which kids receive a lesson tailored to them on how and why we worship God.

Children with special needs can take advantage of our year-round "Buddy Program" during the Worship Service, for dedicated activities and attention. If interested, please contact the church office in advance of your visit.

 

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.
