Worship here is a blend of
music, study, and prayer.
Sunday Worship Services: 8:00 a.m., 9:30 a.m., and 11:00 a.m.
Sunday School for children offered at 9:30 a.m. service during the school year.
Come dressed in whatever’s comfortable for you. You’ll see people in everything from shorts and flip flops to suits.
Provided during all worship services. Nursery located east of the sanctuary with audio of the service available. Toddler care provided downstairs.
Sunday School is held from 9:30 - 10:30 a.m., September through June for children 3 years old through 5th grade. On most Sundays, children meet teachers in downstairs classrooms. Ushers and greeters upstairs in the sanctuary will be able to direct you to your grade-specific teacher. Any pastor, especially our pastor to youth, children and families, Doug Ranck, will be happy to welcome and direct you as well.
On the first Sunday of the month, children begin in the sanctuary at 9:25 a.m. for worship. Kids can sit with their parents or find their teachers in the front row and sit with them. At the passing of the peace (a time to greet those around you), the kids will go down to Sunday school with their class. Their teachers will check them in.
All Family Services:
During first and third services, children may take children's bulletins and use any supplies from our Kid Cart. Feel free to bring these activities into the sanctuary with you!
We practice blended worship. We are blended in ages (from infants to seniors), and we are blended in church backgrounds (we are full of people from all denominational backgrounds: Vineyard to Lutheran, Protestant to Catholic), and we are blended with a variety of ethnic groups and economic diversity. Our worship reflects who we are, a diverse yet unified family of God.
What does blended mean for us? It means incorporating both traditional and contemporary worship styles in our music selection. We see great value in retaining the rich hymns of the faith that have been passed down through many generations and equally great value in new music and lyrics that are cutting edge in the global worshiping Church. While some services will be heavily contemporary and others will be heavily traditional, most will have a combination of styles. Our range of musical styles used in worship includes rock, folk, traditional hymnody, contemporary settings of hymns, and meditative instrumental music. Being a blended church also means that our worship team is diverse in age, gender, and ethnicity.
Blending, for us, also means we will have many liturgical practices represented throughout the year. We follow the liturgical calendar, celebrating Advent, Christmastide, Epiphany, Lent, Holy week, Eastertide, and Pentecost. These practices connect us to the larger, global Church and to Christian worship throughout the ages. We invite you to connect with God through our musical and liturgical worship regardless of your background.
