Getting Here

Worship with us on Sundays at 10:00 am. Our worship style is both traditional and contemporary, and family-friendly. After the children's sermon kids ages 3 - 6 may leave for a Wiggle Break, and return for the passing of the peace and communion. Be sure to stay after worship for coffee hour. 

Join us for spring, summer and fall Wednesday evening classes. Join a holistic small group. Bring your tweens and teens to youth group. Take part in the women's study group. Read scripture or play an instrument in church. Volunteer with the food pantry, or serve coffee to the neighborhood. Or maybe do none of those things, and just be.

Bring your kids, bring your selves. Come as you are.
