Worship Ministry

Sunday Services

On a Sunday morning, you can expect:

  • Two services at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.
  • A service that lasts about 75 minutes including a biblically-based sermon. You can view our current message series here.
  • Blended worship, which includes hymns from the organ, praise from the choir, and songs led by the band. People stand during most songs, and some may raise their hands or lift their eyes, but feel free to engage with God however you are comfortable.
  • A moment of offering. Our "offertory" is an opportunity for us to give back to God who gave everything for us.
  • Communion, which is celebrated once a month.

Children's Ministry provides care and age-specific lessons for children ages 6 weeks-fifth grade. For more information, please click here.
Student Ministry offers a special service for Middle and High School students at 11 a.m. For more information, please click here.

Worship Ministry Opportunities

Adult Choir
We are a “small group” that ministers together and are anxious to add new members to our choir. We welcome those who love to sing, who preferably have experience with choral music, and who are committed to singing on a regular basis. The choir rehearses most Thursday nights from 7–9 p.m. beginning the week following Labor Day and continuing until early June.
Contact: Bill Price, (757) 941-1215, 

The Band
The Band is a group of singers and instrumentalists who work together to lead the congregation in musical worship each week. Believing musical worship is both expressive and formative, we hope to praise and glorify Jesus, encountering Him in our collective hearts and minds. Do you sing or play an instrument and desire to worship God with your musical gifts?

We are excited about the beginning of a new year for Children's and Youth Choirs. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn music, learn scripture and learn to lead in worship. The Youth Ensembles will rehearse at 6 p.m. on Wednesday night beginning September 18. The Children's Choirs begin on September 24 with K-2nd grade at 4:45 p.m. and 3-5 grade at 5:30.

Usher Team
Ushers welcome each person into our worship services by handing out bulletins and assisting people getting to their seats. They also help by collecting the offering and serving communion. Ushers serve at the Sunday service that best fits their schedule for one month each quarter and at special events such as the Christmas Concerts. New volunteers are always needed and greatly appreciated, either as part of our regular team or available as a substitute.

Communion Preparation Team
Teams of two to four people prepare communion elements on the Friday morning before each Communion Sunday, help with clean-up on Sunday morning following each service and for other special occasions such as Good Friday and Christmas Eve. Teams rotate responsibilities and serve two to three times per year. New team members are welcome.
