We are very excited to announce that our sanctuary will be open for worship beginning Sunday, April 25, at 10:30 am! Please wear a mask and arrive a few minutes early so that the ushers can seat everyone safely and in time for worship to begin. Please note: only the east doors to the narthex will be open due to construction, so park on the high school side of the building. Ushers will direct folks to the next available spaces in the pews to ensure social distancing. We will have the air conditioning and sanctuary fans on for airflow, so you might choose to dress warmly. Hearing devices are available, but folks are encouraged to bring their own headphones or earbuds. Worship will continue to be streamed online and on TV each week for those who aren’t ready to venture out to the church just yet. We look forward to seeing many of you in the sanctuary soon!
Services for the Lord’s Day are held at 10:30 a.m. each Sunday in a traditional, Reformed format, which includes congregational participation in singing, prayers of the people, reading of the scriptures from the Old and New Testaments, and a response to the Word in sermon, the sacraments, and an offering of our tithes and offerings. Communion is celebrated several times each year at the beginning of the Church seasons and is open to all Christians and their baptized children.
Additional opportunities for worship are offered during the seasons of Advent and Lent as well as special services of Healing and Wholeness. Lay persons of all ages assist our Pastor in leading worship through prayers, confessions, and other responsive readings.

A nursery is available for infants during the 10:30 a.m. service.

We celebrate the sacrament of communion several times a year. All Christians, including baptized children, are invited to participate.
We offer special services throughout the year, including during Advent, Lent, and Easter. More Taizé services are being planned for Lent along with a presentation of the Living Last Supper.
