Whether you’re visiting for the first time or joining us again we invite you to review our visitor information. Everyone is welcome and we hope to make your visit as enjoyable as possible!
WHEN IS WORSHIP?
Worship celebration with communion is held Sunday at 9:30 am and is also livestreamed on YouTube. Services average a little over an hour in length.
HOW DOES COMMUNION WORK?
Communion is celebrated at every worship service. During the COVID-19 pandemic we are using pre-packaged communion packs which are handed out by ushers as you enter the sanctuary.
When we are able to safely partake in distribution of the elements, an usher will dismiss you by row to come forward through the middle aisle. You may stand or kneel at the rail, extending your hand for the wafer. Receive the wine by dipping the wafer into the wine (intinction). Non-alcoholic grape juice is also available. Gluten-free wafers are available as well; please inform the pastor if you need one. After receiving the elements, return to your seat by way of the side aisles. If you do not wish to receive the wafer and wine, you may participate by coming to the altar and folding your arms to receive a blessing.
WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC IS PLAYED?
Music plays a major part in how we respond to God’s Word. In fact, it’s in our Purpose Statement – ‘feeding our faith with music.’ On any given Sunday you might hear traditional hymns, contemporary Christian tunes or our bell choir. Throughout the church year you’ll also hear various musical stylings by strings, woodwinds, brass, Christian praise bands and local choral groups. Visit our Music and Worship page to learn more about how to get involved.
HOW DO I GIVE A GIFT?
Guests should not feel obligated to contribute when the offering plate is passed. We ask only that you give us your name, address and email via the ‘Let’s Get Acquainted’ cards, which are available from an usher, so that we can keep in touch.
MAY I BRING MY CHILDREN?
Children of all ages are welcome to worship with us. Children age 3 through 6th grade are also invited to attend our Children’s Sunday Church School program which is held during the school year. Families are encouraged to begin worship together at 9:30 am in the Sanctuary. Children are dismissed from worship and escorted to classrooms, or children may report directly to their classroom by 9:30 am. All classrooms are located on the second floor of Parish House. Children are released to parents at the conclusion of worship, at approximately 10:30 am.
