We want to journey with you and for you to journey with us as we all seek to follow Jesus and participate with God in changing the world.

What To Expect At Our Services

8:30 Service - Traditional
The 8:30 am service takes place in our chapel. The music and hymns are led using the Virginia Lea Ferebee Memorial Organ. While the style of worship is traditional, it is a very intimate and personal service with a warm and close-knit feel. Instrumental and vocal soloists provide special music for the chapel service.
9:00 Service - Contemporary
The 9:00 am service takes place in our fellowship hall. This worship experience includes more contemporary music led by our music leader and band and is more informal in nature and structure. This energetic service is highlighted by the reading and preaching of God's Word, all integrated with songs to help people connect to Christ. Many people who do not feel as comfortable or have experience in a traditional church setting have found this service meaningful.
11:00 Service - Traditional
The 11:00 am service takes place in our sanctuary. The clergy, choir, instrumental and vocal soloists, children’s choir, and occasionally our church orchestra and adult handbells lead hymns, liturgies, anthems and other acts of worship. The hymns and service music are primarily led using our Goulding and Wood pipe organ, as well as other instruments. We consider our 11:00 service to be reverent and highly liturgical, meaning our robed choir processes with our robed clergy each week led by the crucifer. Sermons, anthems and hymns center around a scriptural theme for the week--often a sermon series.
