Worship, Community & Service

Upcoming Events: 


Holiday Worship


This month, as we continue in the Season of Advent, it ends on Christmas Eve as we celebrate the birth of the Christ child, as God came to us in the person of Jesus of Nazareth, God’s unique, incarnate Son. In terms of our worship schedule, the final 3 Sundays, December 4, 11, and 18 feature our regular 9:00 a.m. Contemporary and 10:30 a.m. Traditional worship services. 

December 11th - Children's Christmas Program at both services.

On Christmas Eve, we will feature Contemporary Worship at 5:00 p.m. with our Praise Band. Later at 8:00 we will have Traditional Candlelight Worship with our Chancel and Bell Choirs and a Christmas homily at both.


On Christmas Day, which this year falls on Sunday, we will have a single Traditional Service at 10:30 a.m. which will feature lots of carol singing!

One week later on Sunday January 1, we will celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Com-munion at a single Contemporary service at 10:30 a.m. and we will begin a new sermon series on Mark’s Gospel.


We’ll return to our “normal” 9:00 Contemporary and 10:30 Traditional services on Sunday January 8.

Sunday Adult Bible Study


Studying the Book of Hebrews


If you are not attending the 9:00 Service on Sunday morning, the Sunday Adult Bible Study and Education men and women would love to have you join for a special and grand time in God's Word.  We meet in the Church Library at 9:00 A.M. and conclude at 10:00 A.M. This gives you lots of time to visit and get a hot cup of coffee before our 10:30 Sunday Service.



Women's Bible Study


Gospel of Luke 

The Gospel of Luke is unique in at least two ways.  First, it is the longest Gospel and contains 1,151 verses.  Second, it is the only Gospel with a sequel.



We would like would like to invite all the women to come and join us as we study Luke's Gospel on Thursday mornings at 9:30 a.m. in the Christiansen Room.
