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 30-minute 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.

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.

The Praise Team 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?

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.
