WORSHIP

Sunday Worship

Our Sunday morning worship service begins at 9:45 a.m. Large-print bulletins and hearing assistance are available, and the church is handicapped accessible (side entrance on right side of building). Following a children's time and the anthem, children in kindergarten through sixth grade are invited to go downstairs to Sunday School classes (insert link to Faith Formation page) classes. Nursery care also will be available downstairs. Visitors are encouraged to arrive early if they would like to tour classroom and nursery facilities downstairs. Following worship, there are often opportunities for adults to learn (insert link) and grow in faith.
A communion service is held on the first Sunday each month.

Music

"Be filled with the Spirit, as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, singing and making melody to the Lord in your hearts." - Ephesians 5:18b-19

The church choir (insert link) sings an anthem each Sunday from September through June, taking a break in July and August.Midweek choir rehearsals are at 7 p.m. on Wednesday.

A signup sheet for special music (insert link) is in the church's side entrance. Special music - anything from cowboy and country gospel to contemporary, from original songs to sacred instrumental music - is provided by an eclectic array of talented musicians and singers.

Healing Services

"Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord." - James 5:14

Worship services for healing and wholeness are held quarterly. Pastor White offers an opportunity at each service for anointing with oil (scripture ref.) and prayer for healing. Worship music on themes of healing and wholeness provide inspiration and some measure of privacy as each person shares their prayer concerns and receives prayer that God will meet their needs.
