Celebrate the Gospel of Grace with Us
READ, LISTEN, WATCH
Attend one of our vibrant Sunday morning worship services. We have two Sunday services, meeting at 8:30 and 11 a.m. The 8:30 a.m. service incorporates contemporary music with a band and a brief, casual service while the 11 a.m. service is traditional and features our adult choir. Both services offer a sermon designed to teach, challenge and lift you up. Visitors are always welcome to join us in praising and sharing God’s love.
Children in Worship
We believe your kids getting the word is more important than your kids getting the wiggles. So don’t feel you have to silence them in the sanctuary. To make your job as a parent easier, though, the following options are available for your convenience:
Childcare: Our nursery is staffed by caring professionals who love children and are strongly committed to their safety and security. Nursery care for infants through kindergarten is available from 8:15 a.m.— 12:30 p.m. on Sundays and many other church events. The nursery is located in room 207 on the same level as the sanctuary. Rocking chairs are also available, outside the sanctuary, if you prefer not to take your child to the nursery.
Worship folders: Even the most creative and interesting worship experience can be a long time for children. Worship folders are available just outside the sanctuary for children to use during worship. The folders include Children’s bulletins that are directly tied to the day’s scripture, coloring pages and small toys. Please remove used pages and return them so they will be available for the next Sunday.
Children’s Church meets during the 11 a.m service. Children leave partway through the main worship in the sanctuary, and go attend a service where they can learn Christian truths and values with fun crafts and activities. Volunteers are needed; parents of participants are expected to assist on a rotating basis – click here to sign up.
Upcoming Sermons and Series:
Our sermons for the remainder of 2019 and into 2020 will focus on the story of Jesus — from the Old Testament to the New Testament. Beginning Sept. 1, in “Walking Backwards from Emmaus: Jesus in the Old Testament,” we’ll begin with the creation story and work our way through the prophets to learn how the Old Testament witnesses to Christ. Then, starting in January, we’ll walk forwards from Emmaus, exploring how the gospels and epistles testify to the king who calls us as his particular people in the world. We’ll call it the Jesus Story Year, and it will take us from September through May. Our hope is that by the end of the series, you’ll be like those on the way to Emmaus, knowing how every story whispers the name of Jesus and knowing, too, how that whisper is actually the call of a talkative God who never rests from recruiting subjects into the cause of his kingdom.
