Sunday Morning Worship April 2022

Join us Sunday mornings at 11:00 AM or you can also watch live on Facebook Live.

Our traditional worship service celebrates the best of our Wesleyan heritage with praise, music, prayer, Scripture, and proclamation. 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 our family of faith as we offer our praise and worship to God.

On the first Sunday of every month, we celebrate the Lord’s Supper at both Morning Worship and Sunday Night Live. We share Communion intinction, sharing the common bread and cup, with the option of prepackaged, individual gluten-free kits. All are welcome at the Table! If you would like Communion brought to your home, please contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
