Worship is the heart of our faith community. In worship we celebrate the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ - the power of God's grace active in the world and in our lives. In response to this good news, we return to God our praise and thanksgiving, our prayers and hymns, our gifts and offerings. Worship during the year follows the schedule below.

From the first Sunday in June until the Sunday after Labor Day, we worship at one service at 9:30 AM, and observe a recess from the educational hour.
