"Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let them say among the nations, 'The LORD reigns!'"
- 1 Chronicles 16:31
We believe that the goal of our faith is to make every moment of life an act of worship. We worship God through our gratitude, our attentiveness, our self-giving, and daily acts of kindness, mercy, and justice. But it all begins by setting aside time to gather as a community formed by the Spirit of Christ. Worship unites us as a community of faith and sends us forth to be God’s people.
We offer three traditional services at 8:30, 9:45 and 11:00 a.m. The 8:30 service features bluegrass/folk music. The 9:45 and 11:00 services include our sanctuary choir and traditional hymns with accompaniment on the organ and piano.
We offer communion during all services on the first Sunday of the month. Sunday School for all ages is offered at 9:45 a.m. and Children's Church is offered in the chapel during 11:00 a.m. worship for children in kindergarten through second grade (children will be dismissed from the sanctuary after the Children's Message).
Communion Preparation and Service
Serving and preparing communion is rewarding and a great way to connect with the congregation during worship. One volunteer said,
"I'm not that good of a singer and I don't play an instrument, but I can hold the cup and tell my church family 'The blood of Christ shed for you.' You say those words maybe a hundred times and each time you say them you understand the weight of those words a little more. It's really more like saying 'I love you so much.' I think that's why I love being a server so much: I get the chance to tell hundreds of my church family members individually that Jesus loves them."
Your commitment to be apart of the Communion Guild can vary from one Sunday a year to as many Sundays as you would like. Please contact Katherine Hodges if you are interested. Communion Guild Training is held annually.
