Visiting on a Sunday

Sunday School – 9:45 am

Enter through the side entrance to the main building which is the smaller door that faces Iona St. As you enter, you may go down the stairs if you have any children 2 and under that you would like to have in the nursery, or go up the stairs for all other classrooms. After you pass the bathrooms, go left to find the pre-K class meets in a room connected to the sanctuary or go right to find the adult class. Continuing past the adult class and up the stairs is where you can find the youth (6th-12th) and elementary (K-1st, 2nd-5th) classes.

Sunday Worship Service – 10:45 am

Enter through the main entrance to the main building which is at the large white doors that face South Main Ave. Just inside the doors you’ll be greeted by friendly faces in the lobby where you can pick up a bulletin or learn more about upcoming events or community service opportunities. All ages are welcome in the worship service and we encourage families to worship together, but we also offer a nursery to provide care for children ages 2 and under downstairs as well as an optional Children’s Church program for children in pre-K through 5th grade which happens during the sermon and end of the worship service.

Our worship team plays a variety of modern worship songs and traditional hymns. A variety of church members of all ages and genders contribute their time and talents to the worship service through prayers, meditations, Scripture readings, singing, music playing, and more. Sermons are Bible based and gospel centered. Of special importance in our worship services is the practice of participating in Lord’s Supper each week, to remember the body and blood of Jesus. All Christians are invited to participate regardless of where they place their membership.
