Worship Schedule

Due to the current pandemic health concerns, we are meeting online as Virch - Virtual Church - join us online each week using this information.  And our 10am worship service will also be live-streamed via our Facebook page.

==============================================================================================

Sunday morning worship is at the heart of our community. During the first half of the worship service, we hear The Word, and reflect on it during a sermon or discussion.  The second half of the service is Holy Communion, when we break bread together and share wine, as a symbol of God among us.

Grape juice and gluten-free wafers are available upon request at all services. All who seek God and are drawn to Jesus Christ are welcome to receive Holy Communion.

Our Healing Ministry offers each member of the congregation the opportunity to have one of our healing ministers pray over them at the altar during Holy Communion. You may also request private healing prayer after the service.

Each week, immediately after the service, we have a chance to visit together during Coffee Hour. This important time of the week, hosted by a church family, allows us to catch up with old and new friends.

Sunday Mornings

8am Holy Eucharist (or as listed on our website calendar)

For Summer 2020, we will once again maintain our 8am & 10am Worship schedule as listed on our website calendar and add a midweek Thursday 7pm service (outdoors OR online, depending upon the weather).

Upcoming Events

Sunday, September 20:
Often worshipers are asked to put away their devices during worship service, but you won’t hear that on Social Media Sunday, September 20. Why? Because Jesus said so. Jesus tells the story of the rich man and Lazarus, proclaiming "If they do not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be convinced even if someone rises from the dead."  People need to be told the Good News in multiple ways: in person, Facebook, Instagram, website, letter, etc. Each of us must share the Good News!

All Saints' Day is a day on which we pray the names of those we have lost in the past year (or longer).  We are reminded of all those who have marked our lives with a sign, act, word, experience from their own.  Once again, we encourage you to bring in a photo of a saint in your life, and you will be invited to share (during the sermon) a brief highlight of why this person is so significant in your life.
