How our Sundays Look:

7:45 AM

Downstairs

This intimate gathering is held downstairs in a casual setting. Musically, we keep it simple with only piano accompaniment. After the sermon there is an opportunity for questions, comments and discussion. We celebrate communion every Sunday.

9 & 11 AM

Sanctuary

These blended services are held in the sanctuary. Musically, you will experience a wide variety of instrumentation and songs from traditional hymns to contemporary selections. The choir sings anthems most Sundays during the school year. Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. 

The same sermon is presented at all services. 

Children's programs are available at 9:00 and 11:00am.

The Psalms: This Peculiar Marvel

Have you ever wondered if some prayers are off limits?  Have you ever felt like prayer is as matter of bringing your absolute best to God, leaving aside your anger, fears, resentments?  Have you ever been scandalized by the honesty of the prayers in the Bible?  Historically, the people of Israel and the Church have used the Book of Psalms as their prayer guide and hymnal. The psalms have much to teach us about prayer if we simply slow down and allow their poetry to usher us into a world that deals directly with the joys and sorrows of life, as well as the God who is immediately available. For six weeks we will study and pray different types of psalms together.

April 8:   Introduction, Psalms as Poetry

April 15: Psalms as Prayers

April 22: Psalms of Praise

April 29: Psalms of Lament

May 6:   Psalms of Thanksgiving

May 13: Final Thoughts

 

11:00 AM - Immerse: Reading Through the New Testament - Multi-Purpose Room.  Beginning April 8.

Have you ever wondered why the New Testament was written?  How it was written?  For whom? And would the answers to these questions change how we read Scripture today?  As we read through the New Testament together, this class will set the stage for each week's reading.  Our team of teachers will help us learn about the authors, the people for whom the text was written, and the cultural context of the writings.  Spending time understanding the struggles and experiences of the people who first read (and heard) these texts will help enhance the reading of the Scripture.
