Worship Services for 2018

Worship Services:  9:30a.m. every Sunday. Children welcome. Sunday school available during worship and a Family Care Room off the Sanctuary.

We worship in a traditional style, with our Choir helping to lead each Sunday and a contemporary message from our Pastor, focusing on the eternal truth of Scripture. 


After-Worship Potluck: Last Sunday of the month starting in September and ending in May (Memorial Day weekend).  There are no Potlucks in November or December due to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

Christian Education

We offer classes throughout the year on Sunday after worship and Wednesday evenings.  We  have studied the Presbyterian Creeds and Confessions, and an overview of the Book of Revelations. We also have mid-week Bible studies for men and women.  On Sunday mornings during the school year we offer Children's Sunday Education during Worship.
