We offer worship opportunities to suit a variety of needs, so you are sure to find a style that fits you best. Read on to learn about our worship services, Sunday school classes, and other opportunities for fellowship.

Sunday worship: Sunday mornings typically consist of a contemporary worship service, Sunday school, and a traditional worship service. Childcare is provided during both services in our Family Life Center.

Contemporary service:

Time: 9 am

Typical Dress: Clothing is often casual, and we encourage you to come as you are!
Features a live Praise Band playing contemporary christian music. Praise songs are sung between times of prayer, scripture reading, and a sermon. Meet in the Sanctuary.

Sunday school:

Time: 10 – 11 am
This is a great opportunity to make new friends and grow in your faith. Each week is another chance to discuss life’s issues and see what the Bible has to offer. There are many classes to choose from, so it is probably best to check them out on our website as you begin to consider which one is right for you.

Traditional service:

Time: 11 am

Typical Dress: Some members wear a coat and tie or a dress while others come more casually dressed. We just want you to come as you are!
Features a Chancel Choir with traditional christian hymns. Songs are sung between times of prayer, scripture reading, and a sermon. Meet in the Sanctuary.


A printed bulletin outlining the service may be picked up before each service in the narthex or side hallway.

Weekly worship:

Worship need not end on Sunday as there are many opportunities for fellowship throughout the week. Wednesday nights are particularly busy, but we also have an active youth group, as well as groups for United Methodist Men and Women. If you really want to see what we’re getting into, though, check out the latest newsletter and be sure to come visit us soon!
