Worship Life

Experience God’s love in Christ through Word and Sacrament.

We have three regularly scheduled weekend worship services, which all include music, the appointed Bible readings, Holy Communion, a sermon and children’s sermon. In addition, we offer special services during Advent, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Lent, Holy Week, Easter, and other times throughout the year.

Sermons, music and other devotional material are regularly posted to our YouTube Channel, our Sermons and Music page and our email archive.

A staffed nursery is provided at all services for children 5 and under.

Members are encouraged to help in worship as individuals and families.

Worship Services

Our 5 pm Saturday service is a smaller, come as you are type service.

Our Sunday services are held at 8:30 & 11 am in the fall and spring. We have a wide variety of music, which may include both traditional and contemporary music. Our Adult Choir, our band, Grace Notes, and our Youth Handbell Choir all contribute to our worship at different times.

During the summer (Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend), we have one Sunday service at 9:30 am. Our Saturday evening service also continues during the summer.

On Easter Weekend, we change our regular worship schedule. On Saturday evening, we hold an Easter Vigil at 8 pm. This replaces our regular 5 pm service.

On Easter Sunday, we have 3 morning worship services at 8:30 am, 10:00 am and 11:30 am. An Easter Egg Hunt for children is held at 9:45 am.
