First Time Here?

What to Expect

Welcome! It is a real joy for us to meet newcomers and to tell you about all the good things God is doing in our church family. For over 148 years now it has been our mission to love God with everything. That means that no matter where you have come from and where you are on your spiritual journey, we want to come alongside to inspire, equip and encourage you to live out a life that will bring glory to God and be a blessing to the world. 

If we had to categorize our worship style, we might use a word like traditional.  In the same way, we would like to avoid describing it as stodgy.  You will hear hymns and ancient liturgy that have sustained our faith for generations.  Yet, in this worship setting, we welcome new friends, are quick to smile and laugh, and eager to hear God’s often subtle voice in a noisy world.   We believe that God is glorified when worship is the faithful and joyous response of grateful people.  



We are currently holding services at 8:15 in the Fellowship Hall and at 10:30 in the sanctuary.


8:15 is smaller and maybe a little more casual.  This is an intimate contemplative worship service.


10:30 usually has a larger crowd.  Our pastor and choir often wear robes (the choir does not currently sing in the sanctuary because of the pandemic).    There is a children’s sermon during 10:30 worship. Children are welcome to stay in worship or they can go to Sunday school (suspended due to pandemic) where they engage scripture in activities especially designed for children.  


What should I wear?  You can wear whatever attire you feel is the best expression of who you are.  You will see people wearing coats and ties, skirts and dresses.  You will also see people wearing jeans, shorts, sandals, boat shoes, flip - flops, and a whole range of styles.  Friends, we truly can say Come as you are because that is just how God loves you.

Most services last somewhere around an hour, and are not age-distinct. The 8:15 am service is an intimate service without the presence of the choir.  The 10:30 am service includes the choir, nursery services and a children's ministry for children ages 3 through second grade.  We have all ages attending our Sunday morning services, so no matter what your preferences are, you're welcome to attend!
