9:30 Christian Education Hour

Following our 8:00 am traditional worship service, we provide coffee and donuts in the fellowship hall until 9:40 am, at which time our pastor leads his Bible Study Class in the fellowship hall.  The Sunday Bible Class lasts forty-five minutes until 10:30, which leaves everyone enough time to prepare for our 10:45 blended service.  We certianly hope you will join us for this time of fellowship, food, drink and fun.

During Bible time we offer Sunday School for ages 3 through 12th grade.  Our Sunday School program is like having a VBS every week with an opening, puppet skits, bible lesson, and activity/craft.

10:45 Blended Praise

Our blended service provides a "blend" of traditional hymns and a few more singable songs for worship, while maintaining all the scriptural elements of worship: Invocation, confession and absolution of sin, scripture readings, Apostles' Creed or Nicene Creed, general prayers/Lord's Prayer, and the Aaronic benediction.  Our late service also provides day care for children under three.

Combined Services

We hold combined services twice a year for Unity Sunday. Unity Sunday services are held at 10:00am with fellowship time from 8:30-9:00am, education hour from 9:00-10:00am.
