WELCOME! Whether you are a longtime follower of Jesus or just curious about the Christian faith—or anywhere in-between—it's our goal to make you feel at home as we encounter God together. We believe Jesus is the Son of God the Creator, that the Bible is God's message to the world, and that the same God who will judge the world also loves every person. We believe he reaches out to each of us in the hope that we will respond and become his children. For this reason, we want you to know that you are accepted and welcome even before you arrive here. Come and seek God with us!
YOUR FIRST SUNDAY VISIT Coming to worship with us for the first time? Great! Here's everything you need to know to get started:
Where do I go when I first arrive? Park wherever you like. Enter through the center doors under the steeple.
Bible Classes run 9:00-10:00 a.m. and are provided for all ages over 2 years (occasionally also for age 0-2). See our Got Kids? page. All our classes focus on training in knowledge of the Bible and encouraging us to live as followers of Jesus. The greeter at the main entrance can help you find your class when you arrive.
Worship runs 10:30 a.m. to noon. All ages are welcome. Children's Church is offered most weeks (see Got Kids?). In our worship assembly, we sing to honor God and to encourage and teach one another; we pray to God; we share the Lord's Supper (Communion/Eucharist) together in memory of Jesus' death and resurrection; and we share in a lesson from the Bible.
What should I wear? We encourage respectful but comfortable attire. We're not picky. We're grateful for your desire to simply come and seek God. (If it's helpful, glance through the photos on this site to get a feel for what our members wear on Sundays.)
