Worship Team Chair: Judy Aldridge

Our worship times begin at 8:45 am and at 11:00 AM and are traditional in style. You can expect to see people of all ages.

You won't need to walk away from our church service not understanding what the message was all about. The teachings of the Bible are explained in a way that you will find helpful in your efforts to be pleasing to God.

There's no need to feel nervous about what to wear...wear what you want. If you are more comfortable in casual attire, then wear jeans! If you prefer a shirt and tie, then wear a suit! The idea is to feel comfortable as you enjoy the service.

Our visitors are not expected to contribute to our weekly collection until such time as you feel you wish to become an active participant in the programs of our church.

While visiting on our Communion Sunday, you may partake if you like, or if you'd rather not, that's OK, too.

A time of prayer allows us to offer our praises and requests to God for comfort, for healing, for our country and its leadership, and unspoken requests.

The music is both contemporary and traditional. We have a traditional choir, vocalists, and worship teams and use both instruments and CD's for our music. We encourage people to sing along and to worship in a way that makes you most comfortable. Sit when you want to sit. Stand when you want to stand. And raise or clap your hands if the Spirit moves you!

Anyone who wishes to become a member may go up to the altar during the last verse of the hymn where the pastor will meet them. A simple ceremony will take place welcoming the person into the membership. You may decide first to meet with Rev. John  for counseling.
