Come and worship! All are welcome!

Worship services are led by Pastor Kristin and members of our congregation. In general, our music is accompanied by the organ, but at times we have special music. In the summer, we have a 9:30am worship service outdoors (pictured here). We celebrate Holy Communion at every service. Current services are held at 8:00am and 10:30am in the church.

Join us!
