Visit us for worship Sunday mornings at 8:30 or 10:45. Dress is casual to business casual. (Wear whatever is comfortable!)
Listen to our 10:45 service every Sunday morning on WCLG-AM 1300. If you want a bulletin to follow along in our service by radio, please request one. We'll drop one into the mail on the Thursday before the Worship service so you can listen and follow on Sunday.
On those evenings before worship, we have a quick, ejoyable potluck meal at 6:30.
Our Music Ministries department has new faces, and we are overjoyed! Two experienced music scholars, Luke Diamond (working toward Baccalaureate degrees) and Youna Choi (working toward her doctorate), have taken permanent positions since March 15. Luke will conduct the Chancel Choir, and Youna has been accompanying the choir, as well as providing the accompaniment for our congregation during worship services on Sunday mornings. More information is on the Music Ministries Page
Read about the groups, the classes, and the ministries. Help us make disciples of all the world.
Flowers enhance our chancel area during our worship service. People have dedicated them in memory of a persons' birthdays, in honor of loved ones, wedding anniversaries, adoptions, homecomings, and departure for active duty in our armed forces.

New Ray Vander Laan Study Begins Sunday, April 12
“Faith Lessons” are fascinating Bible studies with tour guide and historian Ray Vander Laan. Filmed in Israel and Turkey where Bible events actually took place, Ray Vander Laan weaves together historical, cultural, and geographical contexts to reveal keen insights into how people in biblical times understood God and Jesus' teaching . On Sunday, April 12, we will begin our fifth installment of “Faith Lessons” titled The Early Church. This installment will meet on Sunday evenings from 6 to 7:30 five times, concluding on Sunday, 31 May.
The five sessions include: “Everything to Lose, Nothing to Gain”, “The Salt of the Earth”, “Where Satan Lives,” “The Mark of the Beast,” and “Hot or Cold.” Please let the pastor if you plan to attend so that enough resources will be available.
