Service Details

Worship Service 
Sunday – 10:30am to 12noon
Includes weekly communion and Sunday School

We welcome adults and children of all ages and have a conveniently located parents room if parents with young children need some space. Sunday School is provided for the children while we have our Preaching and Teaching time.

Our worship services have three components:
1. Invitation to Worship: A service leader leads us in worship together.
2. Response in Worship: A time when the church expresses their worship through prayer, stories of God’s faithfulness, biblical encouragement and worship in song. Each week we celebrate communion together. 
3. Preaching & Teaching: The Word of God is opened and taught as we depend on God’s Spirit to speak into our lives for change and growth
