Sundays: On Sunday mornings in the summer, we offer our Summer Sunday Celebration for fall 4 year olds through 1st grade during our worship services at 9:00 and 10:30 a.m. We encourage our 2nd through 6th graders to worship with their families in the summer. Worship packets are available in the Narthex for those who would like to use them. Nurseries are always available at all services.

We realize this is a time when people may be looking for a church home due to a recent move. We hope that you will explore the website to see what is offered during the school year and that we might meet you when you visit to answer any questions you may have.
