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  (late September through mid-May) on to:
