Sunday Worship

We welcome you to join us Sunday mornings.  Our worship service begins at 10:30 a.m. with a time of singing and prayer followed by a message from Pastor Scott Knight or a guest speaker.  Attire is casual our new Sanctuary reflects our love for families and children.  We have a children's table and chairs with quiet activities set up in the back of the sanctuary.  There are two new rooms just for families with children, the nursing mothers’ room and the active child room.  They both have one way glass and a sound system so you can still see and hear the service as you tend to your children's needs.  Additionally, we offer sermon time childcare in the nursery area for infants to 5th grade.   The service generally lasts about sixty minutes, and we enjoy an informal time of fellowship before and after the service.  
If you are unable to attend Sunday morning, the service is recorded and available to view anytime during the week.

Upcoming Events

Join Us as we celebrate the Upcoming Advent Season.  
The Advent season is a four-week period before Christmas that celebrates the anticipation and coming of Jesus Christ, the Messiah. The origin of "advent" is from the Latin word adventus, which simply translates as "coming" or "arrival." Not only is the Christian meaning for preparing and celebrating the coming of Jesus Christ, his birth at Christmas, but also to celebrate the new life when someone accepts Jesus Christ as their Savior, and lastly, the anticipation of Jesus returning again.
