The focus of our ministry is corporate worship; that is, a worship service of the whole body gathered together in order to offer unto God acceptable sacrifices as he has prescribed.
We gather for worship twice each Lord’s day, at 11:00 AM and 2:30 PM.
The purpose of worship is clearly for the glory of God, rather than for the entertainment of men. We believe that our worship ought to be simple, reverent, focused upon the word, and thoroughly God-centered.
We encourage our families to worship together, parents and children. However, we have several options for parents with children during worship. The rear pews are generally reserved for parents who might need to make a quick exit with a crying infant. We have a cry room in the back of the sanctuary. We have an unstaffed nursery off the sanctuary.
