Sunday Morning

Main Worship at 10 AM

Our main worship service begins at 10 AM on Sunday morning. Greeters welcome you, and ushers will direct you to childcare, large-print bulletins, and hearing devices. Music is a highlight and comes in many forms. The prelude allows you time to center yourself and be open to feeling God’s presence.
Our pews are filled with worshippers from every Christian background, as well as those with no religious background. Prayer, scripture readings, a sermon, hymns, and responsive readings bring you into the experience as participant, not just observer. An offering is collected each week.

Chapel Service at 8:30 AM

A shorter half hour service that includes communion is offered Sundays at 8:30 AM. Occassionally there is music but it is usually a quieter reflextive service.

Inter-Generational Experiential Worship
Monthly, a less formal intergenerational worship experience is held in the Assembly Room and intended for all ages. Experiential worship includes hands-on activities, songs, prayer, the spoken word, and visual engagement. This service is usually shorter, about 50 minutes.

Children and parents

Children, kindergarten and up, learn how to worship by beginning the service with their parents. They then go to age-appropriate classes following their whole-group gathering on the chancel steps. Our Childcare Room opens at 9:30 AM. Click here to read more about Sunday morning for kids.
Our service lasts about 1-¼ hours and is followed by a time of coffee fellowship and light refreshments. This is an opportunity to catch up with friends for both long-time and new attendees. Frequently during the year, a time of learning or exploration, known as a 2nd Hour, is offered beginning at 11:30. Click here to read about 2nd Hours.
