Worship services

We welcome you to join us for worship each Sunday morning at 9:30 am. All children are invited to join in a special part of each service, and children age 4 and younger are cared for by experienced staff in a play area in our building.

Follow the links below to listen to our worship services. You will quickly learn:

  • the importance of the Bible in our worship,

  • what hymns we love to sing,

  • how our commitment to peace and justice is woven into each service,

  • how our pastor and other preachers call us to apply the Scriptures to our lives today.

For each service, several videos, one audio-only recording and the bulletin are available.
