The information below describes practices that pre-date the pandemic.
While we wait for a return to a new normal, please refer to our instructions for in-person worship by clicking here.
We celebrate communion at both services on the first and third Sundays of the month, in addition to other festival services. Jesus welcomes everyone to his table—no exceptions! Small children who have not received communion instruction are welcome to receive a blessing. For those who prefer, white grape juice is available in the center of the communion plate.
The Welcoming Place is designed for members and non-members to socialize between church services—it is located just outside our Fellowship Hall on the middle level of the church. We encourage you to stay late after the 8:00 AM service, come early before the 10:30 AM service, or stop in before or after Sunday School to enjoy social time with others. There is self-serve coffee, other drinks and snacks available to enjoy every Sunday. Looking forward to seeing you there!!
Each Sunday, during the 10:30 AM service, children from Pre-K to grade 4 are invited to a special program during the worship service. During the Gathering Hymn the kids are escorted by trained adult volunteers to our "Children's Chapel". While there they hear the same gospel message, but in an age-appropriate manner. They sing a song, participate in activities and crafts, and pray. The kids return to the sanctuary after the sermon and hymn of the day for a children's message and then to rejoin with their families for the remainder of the worship service. During Children's Chapel, some of the older kids are selected to return as volunteer ushers. Our adult ushers take these kids under their tutelage and mentor them to begin growing into the role of volunteer.
