Where should I park? Is there handicapped parking available?

The church has a large parking lot behind the building.  The handicapped parking is along the side and the closest row to the back of the building entrances. 

What should I expect?

9:00 – The worship service is more contemporary. We enjoy more current music in a less formal service.  

11:00 – The worship service is more traditional with most of the music coming out of our hymnals.  We weekly also share in reciting/singing creeds, affirmations, and the doxology.   

Do you serve Communion?

We serve communion the first Sunday of every month and during holidays in both services.  

What should I wear?

In both services, you will find that most people are dressed casually.

Sunday school starts at 10:00am and there are classes for adults and children.

How do I join the church?

We are very happy to accept people into our membership!  Paramount is that one has faith in what Jesus Christ did for each one of us in his life, death, and resurrection.  If you are interested in joining the church, you need to have a conversation with the pastor.  At that time, the questions asked when becoming a member would be reviewed.
