About Us

  • Each Sunday morning, music begins at 9:30 followed by the Communion-Centered Worship Service at 10.  Second hour classes began again on September 23rd after a summer break.
  • 9:30 Music of Agape' may include live music by Agape', Praise Team or other musicians, CD music of an assortment, or (last Sunday of the month) organ/keyboard concerts presented by the very talented Gil Wittman.
  • Nursery Care:  for children up through kindergarten, available during worship and second hour.  Please check with the Greeters, Sandi Hadley-White, or Cara Zitzelberger for more information.  A new "lullaby room" was added in the remodel and is in the back of the sanctuary - allowing parents with babies to be with their wee ones in a room just for them - with a screen and a window to be part of the service!  There's a toddler room just around the corner!
  • During worship, following Communion, the children are invited to go to a classroom for "Children's Church" under the guidance of Korinna Barcroft and Kaila Moles.

 "Family Time" - 11:15 - conversation over coffee, tea, cocoa and snacks - then on to: 

Second Hour Classes:  

    11:20 a.m. - children age 2 through 5th grade meet in the Music Room of the Ed Unit (with Korinna & Kaila).  

    11:30 a.m. - Chi Rho (6th-8th grade) meet in Room 3 and CYF (9th-12th grade) meet in Room 2.  

          Adults meet in the Fireside Room for led discussions.  The first series referenced Eugene Peterson's "The Message"  and is directed by Ginni Stensland ("I used to think studying the Bible was boring").  Our second series was "Animate Faith" which gave us an opportunity to express and discuss "Faith" in a unique way.  The third series begins Sunday, March 17th!


Conversation Groups

Plans are underway to offer Conversation Groups,  beginning March 17, during second hour for four Sundays. This is a good  way to learn more about each other and explore our faith journeys  together. 

Plan to jump in and participate!
