Our community’s worship of God is held every Sunday morning at 11 AM. Congregational members and visitors from twenty-some nations gather together in the church sanctuary to focus attention on God, God’s work among us and God’s activity in the world.

The Lord’s Supper is celebrated every first Sunday of the month. Services each Sunday include emphasis on praise, petitioning, thanksgiving, hearing and responding, through music in a variety of styles, prayer concerns, prayer and quiet space, the passing of the peace, giving, a children’s lesson, scripture reading, a sermon and the awareness of congregational life.

Special services occurring throughout the year include: Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Palm Sunday, Easter, World Communion Sunday and Christmas Eve. Periodically, baptism, baby dedication, graduate recognition, the gifting of Bibles to 4th and 9th graders and Senior Adult Appreciation are celebrated.
