What are services like?
Each week, the sermon and hymns are related to the Bible texts for the week. We are a liturgical church, but not "high church." We have weekly communion and sing the service during much of the year -- during the summer and Lent we have spoken liturgy. The service includes hymns, prayers, Bible readings, and sermon. We use the older 1958 Service Book & Hymnal, but with some more modern additions to the services.
What is the community like?
We are a small, friendly country church.
What if I'm not a Christian?
We welcome all people! Visitors are welcome to participate or not in worship, as they feel comfortable. Our only restriction is that we ask that only baptized believers receive Holy Communion.
