                 What to expect

Morning Worship

Due to the necessity to provide a situation in which physical distancing can, if desired, be achieved, adult worship has been moved from the Sanctuary to the Upper Room and is for people 6th grade through adult.  There will be a blend of traditional and contemporary music accompanied by piano or guitar.  There will be a time for prayer, including special prayer requests from the congregation.  There will be a Bible-based message presented in a way that the lesson can be understood and applied.  We have communion every week and understand the invitation to the table to be from the Lord.  All baptized believers are welcome to participate regardless of where their church membership has been placed.  We also collect a free-will offering.  

Children's church is conducted in the Fellowship Hall and is for children age 4 years thru 5th grade.  This is a complete worship service which includes all the elements of adult worship, but is geared torward this age group.

A nursery is provided for infants thru 3 year-olds.

Sunday School

Sunday School follows the Morning Worship time period.  Classes for all ages are offered, and all use Bible-based study material.  Student participation, discussion, and questions are encouraged.

Sunday Evening Activities

Our Sunday evening services are not conducted every week.  When held they feature a variety of guest speakers, muscial events, DVD-based studies, dinners, special events, youth nights, etc.  These are conducted in the Upper Room and begin at 6:00 PM unless otherwise announced.  See the bulletin or the Sunday Evenings page under the What's Happening tab. 

Mid-Week Bible Study/Prayer Service/Youth Group

On the first Wednesday evening of each month the adults participate in a special prayer time.  Usually this is in the form of a "prayer circle" in which those attending are can pray about anything on their hearts.  The other Wednesday evenings we offer an adult Bible study led by our senior minister.  This is an in-depth type of study with emphasis on understanding and application.
