Sunday Hours

Worship is all about each of us expressing our trust and gratitude to God, and an openness to receive from God's Word. We meet on Sunday mornings to thank God in multiple ways, and we find value in doing this together. We worship at 10:50am September-June and 9:30am July-1st Sunday in September in a blended style of worship. We blend traditional and contemporary music and liturgy. Our worship always involves more than hymns and preaching but laughter and joy just for being in the presence God and one another.  There is a place for you here!

A word about Holy Communion

Communion, also known as the Lord’s Supper and the Eucharist, is a reenactment of the last gathering Jesus had with his disciples before he faced the cross. We believe this time of remembrance is central for our growth in faith and for our worship experiences. This symbolic meal is known as a "sacrament" which means that it was given to us by Jesus. We believe its importance and holiness is beyond measure.

 

We celebrate an open table -- EVERYONE is invited to share in Communion. After the Pastor leads us in the story of Jesus at the table, the congregation shares the bread and grape juice. Serving is generally by Intinction (coming forward) but sometimes served in the pews in order to receive the bread and juice.

Are you going to ask me for money?

Yes and No. We include a time to return to God part of the finances God has entrusted to our households. Some people give a strict 10% of their resources (which is the biblical concept of a tithe), while others give what they can. Some of us go through times when we can't give, but really need to receive. We encourage everyone to discern their tithes and offering with prayer.
