making waves of welcome and wonder






We welcome you to our community of worship and service on campus or online. We honor your search for the place and the people where you can be the person God has called you to be.

We worship each Sunday morning 10:30 EST in the sanctuary.  We call it Joyful Assembly! Attend our Joyful Assembly on Sunday only if you feel safe and are following all public health protocols: vaccination with booster, masks, and distancing. Our Sunday Joyful Assembly is broadcast elsewhere on this page and also on our church worship FB page.

Sunday Morning Order of Worship HERE

JOURNEY IN JOY:  Join in our renewal effort under the theme SING FOR JOY, LIVE WITH HOPE. We pray God will renew our spirits, energize our ministry, and inspire others to join us in our gospel work. Our journey to congregational renewal continues during the Advent and Christmas seasons with the decoration of the sanctuary (including the Chrismon Tree), the lighting of the Advent candles, and a preaching series of how we as people and families can cultivate hope, peace, joy, and love all year. The Lord’s Supper will be served at the congregational meal following worship on Sunday December 10 (which includes a business meeting). Christmas Eve worship services will be Sunday morning December 24, 10:30 and Sunday evening December 24, 5:30.

During November, the congregation has talked about our buildings and grounds: what we need to improve, repair, or redecorate (inside and out). Here is a link to the survey where you can express your opinions about these things. Action will be taken at the December business meeting.

God is doing wonderous things among us, and we give glory to God. On September 24, 2023, we set goals of attendance of 40 in the sanctuary and $10,000 in the offering for the month. But we all were surprised when 59 people showed up for worship on that Sunday and we gave more than $14,000 for the month.  We have been singing with joy and living in hope!! Good things ahead!
