During our 10:00 am worship service, we worship God with a blend of current worship songs, hymns and older choruses, accompanied by a full rhythm section. Children from kindergarten through sixth grade worship with their families for the first part of the worship service, then they are dismissed to their classrooms. Our worship through song is followed by our pastor(s) faithfully teaching God’s Word, normally through one of the books of the Bible. We participate in Communion the first Sunday of each month. The Nursery/Pre-K for ages 0-4, and children’s church for kindergarten – sixth grade are all available during this service.
ABFs are mid-sized groups that meet on Sunday morning to provide “a place to belong and a place to grow.” These groups provide a great first step for those who are new to the church or to growing in the Lord. A great place to meet and connect with others in our church. You’ll find encouragement, fellowship, prayer, and excellent teaching.
During the 9:00 AM hour we offer classes and groups for adults for learning, fellowship, encouragement, and connecting with others in our church. We offer a variety of study topics and formats that provide excellent teaching. Most groups include discussion and interaction, and seeking practical ways to apply what we are learning in our lives. All classes meet in the north building.
