“Worship and the Church God’s gifts of Word and Sacrament establish and equip the Church as the body of Christ in the world. The mission of the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church flows from Baptism, is
nourished at Lord’s Supper, and serves to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ to all. In the same way, the Church’s ministry emerges from the font, arises from the table, and takes its shape from the Word of
the Lord. Therefore, the worship of the triune God is the center of our common life and our primary way of witness to the faith, hope, and love we have in Jesus Christ.”
Presbyterian Book of Order 2017-2019 W.1.1007
At the heart of our congregation is our worship service where we gather together as one community to glorify God, hear the Word read and proclaimed, engage in the singing of hymns and songs, and share our prayers with one another. At the conclusion of our worship we are sent out into the world to live as God’s faithful disciples, serving God’s people, working for the Kingdom of God here on earth.
We gather each Sunday at 10 am in our Sanctuary, which is located on the street level of our building for a traditional/blended approach to worship. This means that while we appreciate and value theological language, we focus every word in the service to be inclusive and accessible. Every person who enters our doors should be able to understand what we say and our intention behind our words. The same applies to our music. We offer various types of music throughout the service and are gifted with our choir which is a central part of our worship.
Each worship service is followed by a time of fellowship in our parlor.
Child Care is provided for children under the age of 3 during our weekly 10am Sunday service.
Our monthly Saturday 5:30pm service is based on the style of worship at the Taizé community in France. There is no preaching, but there are periods of silence for reflection and prayer. This lay-led service includes unaccompanied singing of chants from Taizé and the Iona community, scripture readings, prayers, and communion. Our lay leaders are commissioned by the Presbytery for the serving of communion. As the schedule sometimes changes, please contact the church to find out which Saturday of the month this service will be held.
