Weekly Worship is the Main Event Each week at 11 am, we gather to praise God through song and prayer, to hear His word in scripture and reflect on it together, and to take communion. All believers are welcome to take communion with us. You can expect a fairly traditional service with a joyful feel. Children are welcome in worship, and there is a special moment for them, as well as bulletins designed with activities to connect with that day's scripture.
Adult Sunday School Meets Weekly! A member led Sunday School class meets weekly beginning at 10:00 a. m. in the Keystone room. You do not have to have prior experience with the Bible study. You can just jump right in and come when you can!
Happy Birthday to You! Romans 12:15 says “Rejoice with those who rejoice!”. We are so glad that God brought you into this world to share our journey and want to do more to celebrate that. We are resurrecting our tradition of celebrating birthdays during worship. During our announcement time, Pastor Jana will ask that anyone celebrating their birthday that day or in the next week come forward so that we can sing to them. Although it was a tradition for us to sing a special birthday song, so that we can welcome visitors more comfortably, we’d like to sing one they know, so we’ll be singing Happy Birthday to You, with “God Bless You” instead of the person's name. We’ll also have the opportunity to give a small donation when you are upfront if you would like as a thank you to God for another birthday.
Keep Collecting Those Pop Tabs! Our pop tabs for Ronald McDonald House collection will continue throughout the year. We can do so much more together! Keep up the good work.
