Sunday Morning Worship

Please join us for worship at 10 am on Sunday, May 1st for the 3rd Sunday of Easter.

Some changes to note…for the season of Easter we will use Now the Feast and Celebration liturgy. For communion we will still offer individually wrapped communion elements on the credence table at the front of the sanctuary.  While Lamb of God is sung,come forward to pick up your communion elements, pastor will bless you, then return to your seat. The eating of the bread and drinking of the juice will be done on your own in your pew during communion distribution led by Pastor.

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