If you love contemporary Christian music and a less traditional atmosphere, come to our praise and worship service! Drums, guitars, singers, and even an occasional mandolin all come together with the voices of God's people to praise Him. Communion is celebrated on the second, fourth and fifth Sundays during the month and on all festival Sundays.
Sunday School classes begin at 9:30 am for children, youth and adults. Children's Sunday school does not meet from Memorial Day - Labor Day, adult Sunday school continues through the summer.
Childcare is available for newborns to 5 years of age and is available during the 9:30 and 11 a.m. worship services and the Sunday School hour. The nursery is located in Room #121. Upon signing your child in you will be given a pager and it must be kept on and with you at all times. You will be paged to change a soiled diaper or if your child needs you. All pagers are set to vibrate only. Bottles and sippy cups are welcome, but food is not permitted. Please pick up your child promptly after service or Sunday School.
Our fellowship time is held in the back of the Common Ground Café from 9:30 am until 10:45 am. Coffee, donuts and other refreshments are available between worship services and during Sunday.
6:30 PM ~ Mid-Week Traditional Service (held in the Sanctuary)
If you need some personal prayer time, private devotion, or faith in action at the mid‐week point, please join us for the reverence and dignity of our Wednesday liturgical service. Our worship starts at 6:30 PM and ends at approximately 7 PM. This service is specially designed to provide a compelling sense of adoration, praise, and thanksgiving found in the Word of God; strengthened by prayer, confession, the fellowship of Holy Communion (each week); and the mercy of Christ.
Come and join us ‐ with needs and prayer requests in tow. We want to pray with you. You will find a much needed divine refuge from the pain and ills of the world. Faith sometimes builds and prays and sings and at other times takes place in reverent silence. Spend some quality time with Christ at Wednesday Chapel and His presence and inspiration will surely follow you home and embrace you the rest of the week. Declare a fast from the world on Wednesday and come into the presence of the Lord and proclaim with the Apostle Thomas, "My Lord and my God.
