Questions & Answers

During worship, we gather to experience God's love for all of us. As we gather and share communion, we participate in God's work in the world.

A typical worship service has prayers, readings from the Bible, and a sermon. Then, we share communion together, a small meal of bread and wine/grape juice.

Except for 8 a.m. on Sunday, which is mostly a spoken word service, we sing hymns and enjoy music from our choirs and other musicians. Not musical? No problem. You are invited to sing along as you feel comfortable.

Held the second Tuesday of each month, our contemplative services are a little different. They don't typically have communion, but do feature readings, prayers and time for silent reflection.

Parents with small children are welcome to use our Cry Room in the rear of the sanctuary any time durng the worship service. It has a sound system so you can continue to listen to the service as you tend to your little one's needs. 

Sundays at 11 a.m. during the school year, kids are welcome to join us for Sunday School. Make your way down the hallway that was straight ahead as you entered the front doors, and let one of the teachers know you're a guest.
