We gather each Sunday for worship of our good and gracious God. Together we offer praise, thanksgiving, prayer, song, as well as a portion of our lives and labor. We receive the Word of God as we listen to Scripture and sermon (which we call a “conversation” as it is a dynamic dialogue between God and the congregation) and as we receive the sacraments of baptism and communion. We are sent our empowered by God’s Spirit to show and tell of God’s love for all the world.
Our worship style tends toward the traditional, though we seek a variety in our music, prayers, and overall dynamic of the service. We celebrate communion twice a month: the first Sunday of the month in a more formal style of being served in the pews and the third Sunday of the month in a less formal style of coming forward to receive the elements while singing a communion song.
Many people from the congregation are involved in leading worship as liturgist/leader, offering prayers of the people, reading Scripture, singing in the choir, ushering, and serving as Deacons who prepare the sanctuary and also the communion elements. Since the liturgy of worship is “the work of the people,” we all participate in worship as together we glorify God!
