What does worship look like?
Casual - You can come in your Sunday best, you can come in jeans and a t-shirt, or you can even come in your pajamas! God calls us to come just as we are and we welcome you, just as you are! Feel free to bring in any snacks & drinks as well.
Family friendly - Kids are a part of our community and of God's family, so we welcome them and want them to be a part of our worship together. We have kids activity sheets and worship bags for kids to help them connect with the service and keep them entertained. The congregation truly feels blessed to have children present during service, and understand fully that can mean a little extra noise, after all children are children with little attention spans and big emotions. Please know and be assured they do not mind! It warms their hearts to hear that noise!
Everyone is involved - For us, worship is not a concert or a spectator's sport. Worship involves full participation. We all make up the body of Christ and in worship God meets us where we are and calls us all to worship together as a community in Christ. We will sing hymns together, pray together, share God's peace with one another, and share communion together each week.
Communion is open to all - We celebrate communion every week. And, as Jesus said on the night he was betrayed, his blood was shed for ALL people for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore ALL people are welcome at the Lord's Table.
Fellowship Hour - Every Sunday after worship, we have time set aside for an opportunity to catch up over drinks and snacks and get to know one another a little better. This is a great time to meet some new people! Join us downstairs in the fellowship hall!
