An inclusive, Christ-centered community making a difference.

Sunday Worship

Sunday Worship Services

Christians have been gathering together since the first century to break bread, share in fellowship with each other, be present with God, and celebrate the resurrection of Christ.  Worship is the center of our life as a congregation and we welcome all to join us.  Children are especially welcome in worship with us, but we recognize that some parents or children need another option.  For that reason, we offer nursery care for ages 0-3 during every worship service and enrichment opportunities for ages 4 through fifth grade during the late service.  

Our Sunday morning worship opportunties are as follows:

During the school year (September through mid-June) we offer three Sunday morning worship services:

  • 8:30 - a traditional worship service that includes:
    • children's time, with a message tailored for young ones
    • music of the Asbury Singers and solo musicians
  • 10:00 - a contemplative, communion service, celebrated in the chancel (the area at the front of the church near the altar) that includes:
    • a hymn sing
    • Holy Communion

NOTE: 10:00am is also our Sunday School hour, when adults, youth, and children may participate in groups to help them grow in faith.

  • 11:00 - a traditional worship service that includes:
    • children's time, with a message tailored for young ones
    • music of the Sanctuary Choir and solo musicians
    • enrichment opportunities for children ages 4 through 5th grade who do not wish to stay with their parents in worship.
    • Occasional baptisms, confirmation, reception of new members, mission trip commissioning, or Holy Communion.

During the summer (mid-June through Labor Day Weekend) we offer two Sunday morning services:

  • 8:30 - a contemplative, communion service, celebrated in the chancel (the area at the front of the church near the altar) that includes:
    • a hymn sing
    • Holy Communion
  • 10:00 - a traditional worship service that includes:
    • children's time, with a message tailored for young ones
    • music of the Sanctuary Choir and solo musicians
    • enrichment opportunities for children ages 4 through 5th grade who do not wish to stay with their parents in worship.
    • Occasional baptisms, confirmation, reception of new members, mission trip commissioning, or Holy Communion.
