We currently have four Sunday morning worship services - each with it's own unique personality and feel. We encourage you to try any/all of the services! Find which fits your style and needs. Please do not feel that you are limited to one specific service time. We are all one family and you are more than welcome to attend any service (or all) on any given Sunday.
8:00 Traditional Service - This service is more like the church services you may have grown up with. We use hymns, sing from hymnals and enjoy many of the old traditions and structures of the church. Mike York primarily preaches during this service. His wisdom and insight return us to the solid foundation of Biblical study.
9:15 Contemporary Service - This service is a little more laid back. We enjoy worship with slides and praise songs, presented with a guitar and sometimes a light worship band. It's a comforting blend of traditional and contemporary service elements. Want more than hymns but still like it to feel like "church"? Then this is the service for you! Mike York is the primary preacher for this service.
10:30 & 11:45 Extreme Praise - These services are ... loud! We use a full band during this service. And honestly, the music really is loud and usually fast. It's full of energy, keeps moving, and we lovingly refer to it as our ADHD service. Jeff Kraft primarily preaches during this service. His non-traditional style of preaching and practical view of life and evangelism are refreshing.
Something for Everyone
Nursery (Babies & Toddlers)
Your young ones are always welcome to stay with you during the worship service. But, if you or your child would feel more comfortable in room where they can wiggle and walk comfortably, feel free to take them to the Nursery upstairs. An adult nursery worker will be available to play with/take care of your child(ren) and enjoy them! Or, as always, you are welcome to stay in the Nursery with them! Babies will be pampered. Toddlers will have a great time playing and learning about God's amazing world!
Children's Church (Preschool - 5th grade)
During the services, kids Preschool - 5th grade will be dismissed for Children's Church, which meets in the classrooms upstairs and in the Fellowship Hall. Here your kids will enjoy Bible lessons, games, crafts, and lots of fun experiences to help them learn about God.
You are welcome to peek in on your child at any time, or come and experience Children's Church with them!
If your child is more comfortable in the service with you, that is just fine. Or, if they decide they would like to try Children's Church in the middle of the service, please feel free to bring them upstairs to class yourself.
