Sunday Morning Worship
Please join us for worship at 10 am on Sunday, April 24th for the 2nd Sunday of Easter. Pastor Pokora will be gone, so Roger Oliver will fill in for him.

Some changes to note…for the season of Easter we will use Now the Feast and Celebration liturgy. For communion the individually wrapped communion elements are on the credence table at the front of the sanctuary. While Lamb of God is sung, please come forward to pick up your communion elements, pastor will bless you, then return to your seat. After the Lamb of God is finished we will eat and drink together.

All worship services are offered in-person at 10:00 am in the sanctuary or via Facebook Live and later uploaded to YouTube.

Check the kiosk for volunteer opportunities at church; also read about church and community happenings. Sign-up if you are called to help.
