11 am Sunday Traditional Worship

Morning Worship has returned to the Sanctuary! Sundays at 11:30 AM. You can also watch live on Facebook Live.

Our traditional worship services celebrate the best of our Wesleyan heritage with praise, music, prayer, and proclamation. The organ joins voices singing the hymns of our faith. A warm and welcoming congregation greets one another, shares their joys and concerns, and seeks God’s will for their lives and for our church. All are invited to join this family of faith as it offers its praise and worship to the Lord.

Prelude by Greg Bottomley
Greeting
Call to Worship

We come needing sustenance and nourishment.
We need the bread of life.
We hunger for true bread that will nourish our souls.
We are hungry, we are thirsty.
Come to Christ, who feeds us with his very life.
The bread of life has come among us!

Prayer

O God, you nourished your people with manna from heaven. Give us a hunger for the Bread of Life, Jesus Christ, who has come down to us. Feed us today, that we may never hunger again. Amen.
