FAQ's About Worship
A worship experience that merges you with Jesus.
When are worship services?
We gather for worship on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am. We also gather for worship in the evening
several times of the year on special occasions like Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good
Friday and Christmas Eve. Check out our church's newsletter for more information.
What should I wear to a service?
Come just as you are. Blue jeans and shorts...to business suits and khakis. You'll see people
dressed casual to dressy. It's really a mixture. You don't have to dress any certain way...really!
How long are services?
We keep them to about 60 minutes...not too much longer or shorter.
What style of worship will I find on Sunday mornings?
Our worship services are "blended." We sing the best of traditional hymns from the past along with
a mixture of contemporary praise songs. Song lyrics and Bible readings are projected on the big
screen. From time to time worship includes short skits, video segments and multi-sensory
experiences that help enhance the day's theme. Our church has a number of musical groups that
perform special music that ranges from contemporary, country to classical.
What's the style of preaching on a typical Sunday morning?
Our pastor (see bio) delivers messages that are Bible based, down to earth, and which challenge
one to stretch one's faith in everyday life. PowerPoint slides and video clips help visualize the main
points of the message.
Do you serve communion? If so, how often?
We definitely serve communion. We celebrate the Lord's Supper on the last Sunday of each month
and on other special occassions.
Is worship handicap accessible and infant friendly?
Our facility is wheelchair accessible. Song lyrics and Scripture readings are projected on the big
screen for those who need large print to read. We also provide a cozy Cry Room/Parlor adjacent to
the sanctuary that your little ones can go when they get fidgety that allows parents the opportunity
to see and hear everything that is going on in worship so you'll never miss a thing.
