What happens during worship?

We pray that the Holy Spirit helps you discover God, be equipped for daily living, and encourages you to go out and serve! We help create this atmosphere through our hymns and instruments, our written liturgies (spoken prayers), and our interactive and engaging sermons. Everything is carefully outlined in our worship bulletin to help visitors understand the flow of our one-hour service.

What options are available for my children?

Sunday School begins the same time as Worship for preschool thru 5th grade. On the second Sunday of each month (Kids in Worship), all kids begin in worship with their parents and leave after the Children’s Message. Childcare is available in our Nursery for infants through three-year-olds and is available before worship beginning at 10:15 a.m. through the end of the Worship service.

Our preschool class meets upstairs. Kindergarten through 5th grade begin in the Chapel upstairs and end in a classroom downstairs. Our classes follow the Orange curriculum, which allows every class to study a familiar Bible topic each Sunday, making it easier for parents to guide family discussions afterwards about what each child learned.

Will there be Communion?

We celebrate Communion on the first Sunday of each month. We believe in an open table, which means Communion is offered to anyone who believes in Jesus Christ, regardless of church background. We have gluten-free wafers available upon request.

Will I be expected to give money?

As a response to the blessings God has given, we take up a collection every Sunday during the service. We encourage members to grow as generous givers, which is one of the six practices of a disciple that we hold as foundational in our church. Click the link for more information about giving.
