Following Christ Together in Witness, Love, and Service

10:30 Worship service only on Sunday, February 23, 2020 in the sanctuary

Ash Wednesday service - February 26, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. in the Chapel

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 exist to connect people to hope in Christ & community with each other.


 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!
