What to expectPlease come with your questions and your doubts, just
come as you are! Most weeks our worship service is
traditional in style, but once a month we hold a
"blended" service. Either way, you will be given a
bulletin to guide you through it, and the worship leader
will help cue you when to sing, pray, listen, and join in.
Our service lasts about one hour and includes music, a
message, prayers, and early in the service a special
time of prayer and worship for the children.
CommunionCommunion, or eucharist as some of you may know it,
is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month.
Participation is entirely optional and there is no
pressure to take part if you feel you are not ready.
Sunday SchoolEducational classes are provided for pre-school (age 4)
through grade 8 during the Sunday worship service. All
children begin Sunday worship upstairs with their
parents and are dismissed early in the service to
attend their own gathering and then classes.
NurseryWe offer a warm and caring nursery area to care for
our littlest folks during the service. The nursery is
staffed by a professional, first aid certified, CORI
BaptismAre you looking to have your child baptized? The first
step is to find a church which is a good fit for your
family, begin attending that church regularly, and then
speak to the pastor about baptism. Baptism is the
formal start of a faith journey, a journey best enjoyed
in the company of others. Some of our families choose
to postpone baptism until their child is old enough to
take the vows for him or herself. In those cases, we
offer to dedicate their children. In either case, the
intent is that the youth of the church will take
confirmation class when they are in either the ninth or
tenth grade; at the conclusion of that, they will decide
whether or not to “confirm” their baptismal vows for
themselves, or in the case of an individual who has
never been baptized, be baptized. When adults who
have never been baptized choose to join the church,
we baptize them at that time.
