What is a worship service like?
Our worship services offer enlivening worship and Biblical teaching that is relevant to every day life. Our Traditional Service enjoys singing hymns during musical worship and celebrate communion the first Sunday of the month. Our Contemporary Service joins in contemporary praise songs with a band and celebrates communion every week. Look through our sermon archives to get a feel for what the preaching style is like. Each service lasts about an hour.
What should I wear?
Dress comfortably. You will see some dressed up and some dressed casually. We want you to “come as you are.”
What do I do when I get there?
If you want to arrive a few minutes early, join us in the Gathering Place for free coffee and pastries and get the chance to meet people. From there you can walk across the Lobby to the Sanctuary where our worship services are held. Our screens at the front will have announcements about upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, as well as a 2-minute count down so you know when we’re getting ready to start. If you’re uncertain about where to go, look for the large Welcome Desk in the Lobby. Our volunteers will be happy to answer questions you may have and point you in the right direction.
