What to Expect on Sunday
We’d love to have you join us on Sunday. We have two morning worship services: 9:00 am & 10:45 am.
A well-staffed Nursery is available to care for infants through 2 year olds throughout both services.
Sunday School for all ages and Adult Education Classes are offered during 9:00 am. (Note that these classes take a break during July and August and resume the first Sunday after Labor Day.)
At 10:45 am, Adult Education Classes and Children's Classes for 2-3 year olds and Pre-K through 1st grade are offered. The Pre-K through 1st graders begin in the 10:45 am worship service and are dismissed prior to the sermon for age-appropriate teaching and worship in Children's Church.
We are a community of people who delight in God’s grace. When you visit us, we trust you will find us to be...
• A joyful church. God has done great things for us, and we are glad! Because we trust in Christ who died and rose again to save us from God’s just wrath for our sins, we now “rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory” (1 Peter 1:8).
• A serious church. Scripture says, “Rejoice with trembling” (Psalm 2:11), and the gospel makes this possible. We take the worship of God seriously, with careful attention given to the reading and preaching of Scripture, and the expression of our dependence on the Holy Spirit through prayer.
• A loving church family. God’s love has been lavished on us in Jesus Christ, and through His Holy Spirit, God’s love is poured out in our hearts toward one another. We want you to experience the love of Christ among us, so welcome! Come as you are. You’ll notice some folks who like to dress up for church and others who don’t. Feel free to wear what’s comfortable for you, and you’ll fit right in.
• A church that is centered on the gospel. Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead so that we can be justified (declared righteous) in the presence of a holy God. This is the gospel. As a church, we will never move on from this glorious gospel - only into a deeper and more profound understanding of it. So the songs we sing are focused on the gospel; the sermons we preach are all intended to take us deeper into the gospel; and the new life we live is motivated by the gospel. The climax of our celebration of the gospel is in the Lord’s Supper, which we observe twice a month, on the 2nd Sunday morning at 8:45 and 10:30 AM and (normally) on the 4th Sunday evening at 5:00 PM.
