We believe there are five elements essential to our corporate worship – singing, Scripture reading, praying, preaching, and observance of the Lord’s Supper and baptism. In all of this, we plead the help of the Holy Spirit to inhabit our worship. Below is a brief description of what to expect if you visit us. Childcare is provided for preschoolers and children's worship for children K-1st grade. Children of all ages, however, are welcome to sit with their parents throughout the entire service.
The age of the congregation ranges from elderly saints to newly married couples to singles. We have an average attendance of 300 people. Most people dress in business-casual. People are friendly and welcoming, and Lord willing, you’ll meet a number of members.
Our Sunday morning gathering begins with our Sunday School starting at 9:15 am. We seek to shepherd one another with the Word and prayer and grow in our relationship. Click here to learn more.
Beginning the Service
Our service begins promptly at 10:30 am with a brief time of welcome, announcements, and greeting. We transition from this opening with a time of silent reflection and prayer to prepare our hearts and minds for worship.
We combine joy and reverence in musical style and worship experience as an expression of our Christian experience. We know the seriousness of our sin against a holy God and the joy of His forgiveness through Jesus Christ. Our worship is intentional, attentive, joyful, and reverent. Our songs are a mixture of old hymns and contemporary choruses. All of them seek to be rooted in Scripture. We have a praise team and choir to help lead our congregational singing.

Prayer and Scripture Reading
Each Sunday we read a passage of Scripture related to the sermon text or theme followed by a prayer led by Pastor Aaron. We pray for the needs inside and outside of our church knowing that the kingdom of God advances beyond the walls of our ministry. We also have a prayer or praise and thanksgiving.
We are committed to expositional preaching. Expositional preaching makes the point of a particular biblical passage the point of the sermon. The preacher reads, explains, and applies the passage to our lives. Sermon series alternate between Old and New Testament books. (Sermons last between 40-45 minutes.) Check out our sermons page or see our current series to listen to a sermon.
Lord's Supper and Baptism
We regularly celebrate the ordinances in obedience to Christ's command and as a visual picture of the Gospel. We partake of the Lord's Supper once a quarter during the morning service and once a month during the evening service. Read our Statement of Faith to learn more about what we believe regarding baptism and the Lord's Supper.
Concluding the Service
We conclude the service with a song of response to what we’ve heard preached and the benediction. After the service, we encourage members and guests to stay and fellowship. You’ll often find people lingering in conversation for 20-30 minutes after the service.
