About Us

  • Each Sunday morning, a prelude time brings music beginning at 9:30 followed by the Communion-Centered Worship Service at 10.  Second hour classes are in place for all ages (from late September through May).
  • 9:30 Music of Agape' may include live music by Agape', Praise Team or other musicians, CD music of an assortment, or perhaps recitals.
  • 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 so folks can still take part in the service!  There's a toddler room just around the corner!
  • There is a "Children's Time" within the Worship Service, and the young children are invited to go to a classroom for "Children's Church" under the guidance of Joe Dyer.

 "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 Joe and helpers).  

    11:30 a.m. - 

Chi Rho (6th-8th grade) meet in Room 3  

CYF (9th-12th grade) meet in Room 2

Adults have options!  

Those who have graduated from high school and "have not yet retired," are invited to meet with Sarah Elder in the Pastor's Office.  Discussions and activities are focused around the interests across those generations.

Anyone is also invited to meet in the Fireside Room for led discussions.  The first series referenced Eugene Peterson's "The Message"  and was 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 began Sunday, March 17th and is built around "Sharing Groups."


Sharing  Groups

Sharing Groups began March 17, during second hour and will run four Sundays (skipping over 5th Sunday where we will have a church-wide potluck.  This is a good  way to learn more about each other and explore our faith journeys  together.  Plan to jump in and participate!
