Worship is the time, each week, that we gather as a people.  It is not only central to our relationship with God, it creates relationships amongst those who worship.  Our worship services are more traditional in style, but we strive to have an informal and comfortable atmosphere so that all people will feel they have direct access to God through our worship.  We sing hymns of all eras and enjoy incorporating contemporary songs when we are able.  Our worship begins on Sunday mornings at 10:15am and concludes between 11-11:30am.

Currently, we do not consistently have a nursery available on Sunday morning, but we welcome children of all ages to worship and enjoy the sounds of young children (giggles and screams).  We also have a “cry space” at the back of the sanctuary for times when parents may prefer to find a quiet space to care for their child.
