Family Worship at 9:30 a.m.

Our 9:30 a.m. Family Worship Service features contemporary songs, music, and choral pieces led or performed by a music team, accompanied by guitar, piano, and other musical instruments. The first part of the service includes an interactive and illustrative lesson for children, after which the children leave the worship room for Nursery or Sunday School (according to age). The second part of the service includes a talk for adults. Communion is offered occasionally at the end of this service, and all are welcome to participate. During the summer months our Sunday School teachers take a break from Sunday School programs, and the service itself becomes a combined service for families. It offers a combined talk for children and adults. Refreshments and fellowship follow each service of the year.

Traditional Worship at 11 a.m.

Our 11:00 a.m. Traditional Worship Service is a traditional service for adults in our church sanctuary. It is a liturgical service with traditional hymns led by a pipe organ. This service carries an atmosphere of formal reverence that many people appreciate. Communion is offered occasionally at the end of this service, and all are welcome to participate. A time of fellowship follows each service with occasional refreshments.
