New Service & Modified Worship Times    

Our new Celebration Service at 9:30am in the Sanctuary started a couple of weeks ago and the response has been amazing! The addition of the Celebration Servicehelps us achieve our mission of meeting people where they are and fulfills our commitment to the Church Transformation Process of adding a new worship service. The Celebration Service features acoustic, contemplative music with the serving of communion every week. With the addition, our other worship times have been modified. Daybreak Service happens at 8:30am in the Sanctuary with traditional hymns and a shorter message. At 10:45am in the Sanctuary, there is a traditional high church service with organ music. The Casual Service at 10:45am in the Casual Worship Center has kept the same format with a new worship leader. Please pick up an information sheet for more details. We hope you find a service that fits you perfectly!
