In an atmosphere of love and acceptance, our worship is a celebration of God's gracious love for each of us. We have regular opportunities to receive Holy Communion the first Sunday of every month.

The sacrament of baptism can be scheduled by contacting our spiritual leader for more information. We also provide special worship services at Christmas, on Ash Wednesday and during Holy Week.

Our music ministry includes the Praise Team (9 a.m.), the Chancel Choir (11:15 a.m.) and bell choirs. Our children also have opportunities for choir and bells and perform on a regular basis.

We are child-friendly: we provide a nursery for infants and toddlers at all services. We provide a Children's Church for three-year-olds through elementary school age at the 9 and 11:15 a.m. services. We are a "Safe Sanctuary" church, which means all adult volunteers are screened and all nursery workers are certified nursery caregivers with first aid and CPR training.
