Church in Fall

Following Christ Together in Witness, Love, and Service

Due to the COVID-19 Virus

This Sunday, October 25th, is Reformation Sunday and Kirkin' o' the Tartan along with a Service of Remembrance. We will continue in-person worship at 11:00 a.m. outside in the Deal lot north of our Fellowship Hall parking lot. You may come and sit in a chair, in the grass, wearing a face mask while social distancing from one another, or you can come and sit in your car in the parking lot if you prefer. Tune your FM radio to 94.3 to receive the broadcast in your vehicle. If it rains, we will meet the next week. We will continue to also post the video of worship for those who would like to enjoy the service from home.

Remember! Next Sunday, November 1st Daylight Savings Time ends, please move clocks back one hour Saturday night!

The church staff is now in the office Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

All church activities/meetings are cancelled until further notice.

Worship is on Sunday mornings at 8:45 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Child care is available during Sunday School and at the 11:00 worship service. Sunday morning classes for faith development are available for adults, youth, and children are from 9:45 to 10:45.

The 8:45 worship service is held in the Chapel, the 11:00 a.m. service is held in the sanctuary. Worship is at the heart of our life as a Christian community. We believe in glorifying God through a variety of styles, instruments, and musicians. These styles include organ-based hymns, African-American spirituals, Taizé choruses, and contemporary music by the chancel, hand bell choirs, and instrumentalists.

Through prayer, scripture, liturgy, architectural stained glass windows, inspiring sermons, and song we give praise to God, encounter God’s presence, respond to God’s grace in Jesus Christ, and are equipped for God’s service in the world.


We have a complete online worship service every week so that you are able to worship with us at home.


 We offer Youth a place to grow in their relationship with Christ, serve others, have fun, and chill out with their friends. 


We have planned some special events and would love if you were able to join us!
