What to Expect in Worship
Our Sunday morning worship service is in a traditional style, with piano and organ, a choir and hymns, Bible readings, written prayers that are spoken together, a time of offering gifts, and a sermon connecting the Bible with our lives today.
If you cannot attend in person, you are more than welcome to worship with us on YouTube. We are livestreaming worship Sunday mornings at 10am, and you can also check out past worship videos to get a feel for worship this year.
Some visitors ask what they should wear to worship. Many people choose to dress up in business casual or “Sunday best,” while others wear jeans. You are welcome as you are!
isiting With Children
We love and welcome children of all ages in the life of our congregation, including in worship.
Children’s Sunday school classes have resumed in person, some weeks in the playground area outside and some weeks indoors, on the second floor of the Education Building (closest to the parking lot).
On Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m., we have a one-room Sunday school for ages 3-12, where older children learn to model for and help with younger children as they explore Bible stories through a range of learning styles. Learn more here.
Nursery care, with trained, caring volunteers, is available for children from infants to age 3, starting at 9:45 a.m. Children are also welcome to remain with their families in worship.
