Worship

We look forward to you joining us in worship! We welcome you to come as you are to praise, worship and grow in your faith. Is this your first visit? Here’s what to expect.
 

Celebration Worship

Sundays – 9 a.m.
Sunday Celebration Worship includes hymns lead by our pipe organ, use of hymnals, music from our choirs, pastors wearing robes, and other elements sometimes considered to be “traditional.”

Praise Worship

Sundays – 10:30 a.m.
Sunday Praise Worship includes praise songs and hymns led by our praise band and singers, with most songs and group readings projected on a screen. Pastors usually don’t wear robes, and they present a Children’s Time where the children gather in the front of the sanctuary.

The Gathering

Wednesdays – 6 p.m. – Crossroads
The Gathering worship at Crossroads is a smaller, more informal setting to experience the week’s scriptures and message.

Sunday School

Sunday school and Christian education classes are held for nursery through adult, no matter where you are in your faith journey. View our class schedule here.
 

Youth Services

We invite our youth in junior and senior high school to attend our weekly group gatherings and special events. View our youth events here.
