First Time Visit to Worship
First time visits are always anxious moments.  Let us help you relieve some anxiety.
Dress as you wish. If you are comfortable, we are comfortable.  What you are wearing on the outside is not as important as what is happening on the inside.  
Our first Service is a more traditional service for those of you not quite ready to breakout into song and dance. Our Jubilee service provides lots of Music and fun for the young at heart to enjoy.
We love for our Children to attend Worship with us and don’t worry we love the cries too!Even our smallest of worshipers love to be heard.  However, if you would prefer, Childcare is provided in the rooms located just as you walk in from the parking lot.
During  the Traditional children may be asked to come up and hear a children’s sermon. After the children's sermon, the children ages K - Grade 4 are invited to accompany two adults for children's church.  During this time, the children will learn a Bible verse and do an age appropriate task relating to the verse.  The emphasis is to teach the children the Bible story or the order of the Bible.  The children return to the worship area during the closing song.  
Expect great music in both services. Our choir provides the music in our Traditional Service and our Jubilee Band provides the accompaniment in the second service, both of which areat the Direction of Maggie Probst.
 During the 1st Sunday of the Month communion is available and is open to all persons who attend service.  We as a congregation go to the communion table, break a piece of bread, and dip it into the cup. 
 We love to get to know our visitors and welcome you to fill out the green information cards located in the Sanctuary. Please feel free to fill out the card and place it as your offering for that service. We also have provided welcome bags located in the Narthex,to all of our First timers. In these bags you will find more information about our Church Community. If you still have questions, please feel free to contact a staff member.
 
 We look forward to meeting you!!
