Committee Description:  Worship is at the core of our celebration of God's grace and love that is given to us freely through Jesus Christ.  So we gather as a fellowship of God's people to offer God our songs of praise and thanksgiving, our prayers of joys and concerns, our ears and minds to listen to the Word of God, and our hearts to step out in faith to serve as God guides us. 

Worship Schedule 

  • Regular Worship is held each Sunday morning at 10:30 AM.  

We seek to welcome all who enter into God's sanctuary.  So as we begin our worship, we greet, welcome, and share a moment of grace and fellowship with each other. 

Our worship is filled with music.  Sunday morning traditional worship is filled with organ, piano, and other special musical offerings.  

Our worship is filled with different sights and sounds.  The use of multimedia adds to new and exciting ways to encounter the gospel and experience God's presence.  

Our worship seeks to listen to the Word of God through hearing the Word read and proclaimed.  A variety of voices are heard as lay readers share the Scriptures.  There are times of interpretation each Sunday for both young children and adults. 

Our worship is our gift of praise and our offering of fellowship with God and all who love God.  We leave ready to share the love of God in our community. 


  • Special Worship Services
    • We celebrate the Christian holidays through special worship services.  
    • Pentecost:  ?It is madness to wear ladies? straw hats and velvet hats to church; we should all be wearing crash helmets. Ushers should issue life preservers and signal flares; they should lash us to our pews. For the sleeping god may wake someday and take offense, or the waking god may draw us out to where we can never return.? -Annie Dillard 
DVD Ministry: We are now videotaping all worship services. DVDs may be checked out from the library for anyone to use. 

Videos of Pastor Gordon's sermons are posted online usually uploaded within 24 hours.
