We like to see ourselves as a somewhat laid back, relaxed community where everyone is welcome. On any given Sunday you will find people in blue jeans and sneakers, and people in fancy dresses and suits, and lots of people in between. Our focus is on being community, not on being “dressed up.”
Our two worship services are different, because we recognize that people are looking for options when they come to church. At 8:30 a.m. we gather in a circle, and hymns are played on the guitar. There is a sermon, and the opportunity to add your thoughts afterwards (but only if you wish). We also celebrate communion each week, and everyone is welcome to receive the elements.
At 10:00 a.m. things are a little more “formal” although we don’t really like that word! Hymns are played on the piano and/or the organ; the Alleluia Singers (adult choir) present an anthem most Sundays, and on the last Sunday of the month (usually) the Alleluia Ringers perform on their handbells. There is a time for children to experience the word before they head out to Sunday School. Communion is celebrated roughly every 6 weeks, and again everyone is welcome to receive the elements.
