Come to Worship

Please join us on Sunday mornings at 8:30 and 10:30 for Sunday worship. It is our prayer that you will experience the presence of God when you worship with us and that you will be renewed to live out your faith as you go out into the world.
 
At our 8:30 service, we celebrate Holy Communion each week.
 
 
Church School
Church School is offered during the 10:30 service. Children kindergarten through sixth grade are invited to participate in worship until the children’s message at which time they are dismissed to meet their teachers in the parlor area. Youth 7th – 12th grade participate in a variety of activities, including Church School, depending on the Sunday. Please see the “Learn” page for more information about Church School.
 

Nursery Care
Nursery care is available during the 10:30 service for infants and toddlers. 

This Lent we will quiet things down and heighten our attention to the “still, small voice” of God and our own true selves. Listening through prayer as well as meditation on holy texts is an ancient Lenten practice. Come and rest, come and listen.
 
We will begin our Lenten journey of listening on Ash Wednesday, February 14, at our 7:00 pm service. Our scripture meditation is Luke 1:9-15, as we explore the theme Finding Your Life: Listening Deeply. (Childcare available.)
 
We continue on Sunday mornings at both services…
 
On February 18, it is Finding Your Cave: Listening Spaces which will have us pondering the places where we connect with God, like Elijah in 1 Kings 19:11-12.
 
On February 25, our journey moves to Finding Your Breath: Listening to our Bodies. What does the Spirit and our breathing have to do with prayer? Romans 8:26-30, 38-39 will guide us.
 
On March 4, the ancient practice of lectio divina will provide for us a way of listening to the text to find Wisdom as she is described in 1 Proverbs 20-23. This will be Finding a Word: Listening to the Texts.
 
March 11 brings us to Finding Your Power: Listening for Healing. We will study Mark 5:24-34 and ask just what is the power of prayer.
 
March 18‘s theme of Finding Your Mystic: Listening Beyond the Voices may sound a bit woo-woo, but we’ll dig into Romans 12:2-12 and discover the practicality of letting go of those distracting inner voices to make room for the voice of God.
 
We’ll enter Holy Week on March 25 with Palm Sunday’s Finding Your Purpose: Listening to Your Heart. We’ll look at Jesus’ prayer in Matthew 26:36-46 and see what a vulnerable and genuine pursuit of purpose takes.
