We have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us: prophecy, in proportion to faith; ministry, in ministering; the teacher, in teaching; the exhorter, in exhortation; the giver, in generosity; the leader, in diligence; the compassionate, in cheerfulness. Romans 12:6-8


Worship services are held on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. Services typically include hymns, scripture readings, a time of sharing celebrations and concerns of church family and friends, a message delivered by Rev. Lori Sawdon or a guest speaker, and prayer.
A time of fellowship follows the service.

The Holy BibleAdult Sunday School begins at 8:30 a.m.; Children’s and Jr. High Sunday School begins at 9:30.

Child care is offered for infants and toddlers (up to 3 yrs) of parents attending worship.
