Service Times

Traditional Worship - 9:30 a.m.

We are excited to meet and have the opportunity to greet you.  Arriving 15 minutes prior to worship allows us time to help you find a name tag, get a bulletin, and let's you meet the Pastor, who circulates among those gathered before worship.  We have a 5 minutes countdown to assist everyone to know when it's time to find a seat for worship. 

 

We are in the process of desigining a new Welcome Center just for our visitors.  We want you to have the opportunity to ask questions about our congregation and enjoy a special treat along with some coffee, tea, or hot chocolate.  The Welcome Center is just inside the front doors to your right.  We thank you now for your patiences as we are working to make this a special spot just for our guests.

Nursery

We are happy to provide a volunteer Nursery which is available for infants through those 4 years of age.  Our volunteers are happy to entertain your children in a playroom just inside the sanctuary while you take the opportunity to worship. 

 

  • Because your children are as important to us as they are to you, we will only release your child or children from the nursery to their parents.
