WORSHIP AND OUTREACH

Worship is at the heart of our life as a congregation. From September through early June, we worship at 9:00 and 10:30 a.m. each Sunday, as well as on special occasions such as Easter and Christmas. In the summer, we have one service at 9:30 a.m. in our air-conditioned sanctuary.

Our worship is grounded in the Reformed tradition. Under the direction of our pastor, it regularly involves adult and youth in leadership roles and includes a widely varied and inclusive music program. We seek to involve all worshipers in praying, singing, growing and sharing in a spirit of Christian community.

We have multiple outreach opportunities and a lively Christian Education program. Our capacious building hums with activity and welcomes community activities as well as church-related events.
