Our worship service begins at 9:00 a.m. and lasts around 60-75 minutes. Most people dress casually and we love when children and little ones are in the room with us. We provide nursery care if desired.
A typical worship order includes a call to worship, congregational singing, a children’s time (when all of the adults “listen in”), scripture reading, sermon, offering, sharing and prayer.
While you will likely see at least one of our pastoral staff up front, many congregants help to lead our worship.
Music is an essential aspect of our worship together, and we celebrate its variety in our services. Sometimes we sing a cappella, sometimes with instrumental accompaniment, sometimes with a worship team. We welcome the musical gifts of all.
Our worship includes readings from the Bible and a time of encouragement or instruction for living into the truths found in scripture. We believe that all scripture is best understood through the lens of Jesus’ life and teaching. We value hearing a variety of voices and perspectives during sermons and we trust the Holy Spirit to guide us as we learn and grow and challenge each other in loving ways.
Congregational sharing time is an opportunity for anyone to share a concern, praise, or observation about how God is at work among us. We rejoice together, cry together, and pray together.
Fellowship & Sunday School
Following the worship service coffee and cold drinks are available in the fellowship hall. Everyone is invited to linger or take drinks along to the Sunday School hour.
Our congregation has a robust Christian education ministry. We have multiple classes for adults and children. The class time ends around 11:15.
Adult Sunday School classes choose their own material which includes the Salt and Light curriculum from Menno Media, sermon discussion, Video or Book studies.
We use a variety of curriculum for children and youth, primarily from Menno Media.
