Our new Summer Schedule(June through August) is called “Together in Worship“. It features one Combined Service at 10:00 AM that is a blend of our usual Traditional Service and Contemporary Service. Along with these new times for the gathering time, worship service, and enhanced coffee hour we hope that this new experience brings our church together to build some wonderful new summer traditions and memories.
During the fall our Contemporary Service at 9 am offers an informal, family-friendly style of worship. The service is less formal and more intimate than our 11:00 AM Traditional Service. Casual dress is encouraged, and coffee is welcome in the service.
The service features contemporary praise songs led by a worship band, including acoustic or electric guitars, drums, bass, piano and saxophone. A praise team leads the singing, and lyrics are projected onscreen, freeing people to clap or lift their hands as they worship.
As part of the service, people have an opportunity to share their joys and concerns, and how they see God at work in their lives. Special needs are prayed for, reminding everyone of God’s promise that “…where two or three are gathered together, I will be there also…” The pastors share a thought-provoking and inspirational message for the week.
After a time of singing, children (up through the fourth grade) are dismissed to attend Elevate – a fun and energetic teaching time designed just for kids and led by the children’s ministry team. Nursery and toddler care is provided for all services.
