Worship on Sunday morning is a time to adore, praise and give thanks to the Lord together. Typically our sermons are in an expositional series where we study books of the Bible. Our goal is to understand God’s Word clearly and see what it means for our lives. Our music style is warm and personal, including both praise songs and favorite hymns. Through much of the year we follow a read-through-the-Bible program at home and we build up one another during the worship service by sharing what we have learned and how it applies to us.
To love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength is the greatest commandment (Mark 12:29-30) so all parts of our worship are sincere and heart-felt. Attire is casual.
Children & Youth
We have a nursery as well as Sunday School classes for all ages from toddlers through high school. We also have a great Children’s Church program during the sermon for toddlers through fourth grade. We take our children and youth ministries seriously because we are raising up the next generation of mature Christ-followers.
Adult Bible Hour
Our adult Sunday School program is called Bible Hour. These are instructor led but highly interactive classes where we do in-depth studies of books of the Bible and important Christian issues. If you really want to understand the Bible and grow spiritually, then Bible Hour is for you!
Some of our topics have been the Gospel of John, Great Christians of the 20th century, Greed & Covetousness, Creation and How to Answer an Atheist. Bible Hour engages your mind and heart through great teaching and “iron sharpening iron” interaction with others as we apply the Bible to our lives.
House churches meet at various homes twice per month. In these gatherings we study scripture, pray together, share our concerns, encourage one another and enjoy our friendships. House churches are one of the most enriching and enjoyable aspects of the life of the church.
As a church we realize that “we can only go forward on our knees.” For that reason, we place a high priority on individual and group prayer. We have one group that meets before Sunday worship and we break into groups for prayer after our adult Bible Hour class. We seek to make prayer as natural as breathing, so you will often see people pausing to pray as they chat after worship.
These are difficult times in our culture and we sense God leading us to pray even more. So to increase our prayer life in groups but to avoid travel time we have several small prayer meeting conference calls at various times during the week.
