Our Worship

Sunday Worship is the center of our community.  We believe that at the close of the liturgy, God sends us out into the world to serve each other and join in God’s work in the world.  God then calls us back together at the beginning of the liturgy to remind us of God’s promises, to feed us in Communion and to equip us for life in the world.  Both our liturgies have four major parts; Gathering, Word, Meal, Sending.

We have a single liturgy on Sunday.   They best way to know what is happening this Sunday is to look at the calendar.  Here’s a little about our worship.

9:00am Liturgy

This is a full liturgy held inside the church. It includes a variety of music featuring the Choir, organ, piano, and guitar. We read several Scripture readings, hear a sermon, pray for our needs, and celebrate Holy Communion around the altar. Children of all ages are invited to stay in the church, we know they make noise, it’s ok.
