Welcoming Community

Visitors report that we are a warm and welcoming congregation. This brings us joy as we seek to live up to our first Guiding Principle: “An Inviting Community, Welcoming Everyone.”

We also love reaching out with God’s love in our community and beyond with a strong prayer team, caring activities and mission trips. We provide education for all ages and support a variety of youth programs. We encourage discipleship through small group ministries. We enjoy each others’ company in a variety of fellowship groups. We cherish gifts of music and creativity in worship: choirs, instrumental groups and even a Puppet ministry!

Above all, we keep the Lord of Life at the heart of all we do, basing everything on God’s amazing grace and surprising love for all!

Children in Worship

There is a nursery available from 8:15am until just after worship. Please feel free to use this service. Also know that children of all ages are welcome in worship with their sounds, wiggles, cries, etc!

There are activity bags for toddlers through elementary school children with great things to help occupy busy hands during worship. You can find them just outside the sanctuary. Ask an usher if you need help finding them.

Faith Formation Hour

Faith Formation, or what may traditionally be known as Education or Sunday School, is held between services on Sundays at 9:45am. Learning opportunities are available for all ages! There is a bulletin board in Grace Place, our second building dedicated to Education, that will help you find the class best for you.
