Our Services

What are services like?
8:15 am service is traditional, organ music and chancel choir, traditional vestments and liturgy. 10:45am service is contemporary but but deep roots in the historic liturgy. Brand-new 6pm Saturday service is a hybrid of the other two; traditional style but led by acoustic guitars.

What is the community like?
extremely friendly people, not pushy or overbearing but welcoming and caring for all of God's people. We have activities for people of all ages, we built a playground and soccer field for the community around us in 2009, and continue to do our best to meet the needs of our community. We are an outward focused church with friendly, loving people inside.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Your doubts are welcome; we aren't in the business of shoving anything down someone's throat but we affirm the existence of God and His deep love for the world through Jesus Christ, His Son Our Lord. Stop by anytime, we aren't after your money, we aren't out to brainwash you, but we're here to tell you how truly loved by God you are.
