Anything that is comfortable. We care more about you than your clothes.

What is the Sunday morning service like? (Click to find out)

What is the Sunday morning service like?

Sunday morning is a “blended” service. That means that you will hear both traditional organ music, and contemporary music. Some Sundays include a guitarist and song leaders. Other Sundays you may hear our choir.

The service itself is very traditional with responsive readings, prayers, a children’s message, scripture, and a sermon. The emphasis on seeing God in our everyday lives, and practical teaching about how to live for Jesus.

It will last about an hour.

What is the Wednesday service like? (Click to find out)

What is the Wednesday service like?

Wednesday worship is our “active” worship service. It is geared toward children, youth, and young families.

We use contemporary music. It is VERY informal and only 30 minutes long, and offers a variety of ways that people can be involved in worship.

Do I have to take communion?

No, but you are welcome to receive communion. In the United Methodist Church communion is open to anyone who wants to experience God’s love. Members and non-members, adults and children are all invited to take communion.
