What are the worship services like?
Our Early Service (8:30am) is our traditional service. Our traditional service worships in song with hymns, piano, and organ. Our Late Service (10:45am) is our contemporary service. In this service we worship in song using a band consisting of piano, drums, and guitars. Outside of the music time our services both contain a 20-30 minute sermon and times of prayer. Our services are about one hour in length.
Do you have a nursery?
We do have a nursery! Nursery is offered during our Late Service (10:45am) as well as during our Sunday School hour. All children from birth through two years of age are invited to join us in the nursery. During our Late Service we also have Children’s Church during the sermon portion of the service for all children that are from preschool through fourth grade.
