Worship is every Sunday at 9:30 AM.

Rather than emphasizing contemporary versus traditional, we want you to know that you will find both styles in our congregation. More than a congregation, we are Christians who struggle together, that need encouragement and who desire fellowship. We invite you to join us regardless of your faith journey, educational level, economic standing or ethnic background.

The elements of our Reformed Worship are:

Call to Worship: As God's people gather for worship, through Scripture or song, we focus our attention on God and away from ourselves.

Prayer of Illumination: Before attempting to listen for the Word of God, we pray for the assistance of the Holy Spirit to open our ears to hear and our hearts to receive what God is saying to us through Scripture and interpretation.

Confession: Worshipers today, like the prophet Isaiah, cannot come into the presence of our holy God without realizing our own sinfulness. When we confess, we do so for ourselves and for the church as a whole.

Assurance: Scripture calls us to confession; Scripture also assures us of God's inestimable love.

Word The Word of God: inspired by the Holy Spirit, comes from the pages of Scripture. Interpretation of God's Word comes through Spirit-inspired speech, drama, music, dance, or other forms of communication.

Prayer: Part of our response to the living Word is Spirit-prompted prayer, possible in many varied forms and formats.

Thanksgiving: Our greatest rejoicing can come only around the Table of the Lord as we share in communion with Christ and with God's people. When that is not possible, offering of ourselves and of our tangible gifts can be a beginning response to the Word.

Worship and Service: When the liturgy of the church is concluded, our true service begins. Everything we know about God teaches us that true worship, service, lifestyle, evangelism, is an intentional living of each day in prayer and mission, in our home, our work, our study, our recreation: glorifying and enjoying God forever.
