What to Expect

  • The 10:30 AM service uses a Praise Team of guitar, percussion, bass, piano and drum.  The music is more contemporary and when traditional hymns are used they are more up tempo.  At this service you very seldom see men in coat and tie. Jeans and even shorts are the general attire. This service provides a worship opportunity for children called “Worship Plus”. The kids are dismissed after the opening music set and they go to a separate room in the worship center, where there are age appropriate activities. They rejoin their parents after the message so that they can come to the Lord’s Supper together. Some who have been instructed partake; others receive a blessing.
  • Our 8 AM service is a little more formal. The order of service that is used is based on a tradition from the 1500’s. A few men still wear a coat and tie, though sport shirts and jeans are more common.  The music is provided by an organ and the congregation sings traditional hymns. The message is the same at either service.
     
  • While we have two different worship services, both contain elements of the historic Christian faith. The benediction or the blessing at the end of the services comes directly from the Old Testament. We believe it is important to communicate that we are part of a larger history and community of believers around the world and throughout the ages so we recite one of the historic Christian creeds; either the Apostle’s Creed or the Nicene Creed at almost every service.
  • The Coffee Bar area is very well used between both services. There is a separate room provided for infant care. The room has a window to the worship area and is connected to the service through the sound system.
