Worship

Worship is central to who we are
and what we are about.

Each worship experience includes time of reflection and prayer, time with the Scriptures, a powerful message, and singing.  We praise God and spend time in awe.  We are challenged and renewed.

EARLY MORNING CHAPEL WORSHIP at 8:00am

Our early service has a distinctly traditional feel as we gather on the second floor in the Bobbie Fox Chapel for this intimate service.  We join in the sacrament of communion regularly, sing traditional hymns, and experience the full sermon in this 45 minute service.

SANCTUARY WORSHIP at 9:30am

Our later service in the main sanctuary has a variety of elements to engage the congregation. The organ, as well as a praise band, contribute to this service, which is led by a group of dedicated singers of all generations.  A stimulating mix of contemporary Christian songs, traditional hymns, and special music support the worship.  Our children’s choir is active and enthused, and hand bell music is an all-ages activity. This service also incorporates full media, utilizing videos and projection screens. Together we lift our voices and our spirits.

HOLY COMMUNION

In the United Methodist Church, we celebrate communion on the first Sunday of the month with an open table, to which all God’s children are invited! Gluten-free wafers and non-alcoholic fruit of the vine are used in order that all persons may participate.

HOSPITALITY TIME 10:30 – 11:00am

Spend time with members of the congregation and guests in the Parlor as you enjoy coffee, tea, fruit juice, and refreshments.

SUNDAY SCHOOL

Children 3 years of age through fifth grade: Held following the “Time for Young Christians” at the 9:30am worship. Sunday School for this age group is not held the first Sunday of each month as we host a Family Worship, where children remain in the Sanctuary for the entire service.

Middle School (grades 6-8) and High School (grades 9-12):  Older youth meet for interactive Sunday School lessons and conversation every Sunday from 11:00 to 11:45am.

Adult Sunday School classes meet in our library from 9:00am to 10:00am and from 11:00am to 12:00 noon. In this smaller setting we discuss themes dealing with aspects of Scripture, as well as contemporary topics impacting our role as active Christians who seek to fully “live out” God’s love in the world. Our current education schedule is here.

CHILD CARE

Child care is available for infants and toddlers up to 3 years of age from 9:00 – 11:00am.
