What should I expect during Sunday School
Sunday School is open to all who seek a deeper understanding of God and His call for our lives. Adults gather in Fellowship hall and enjoy coffee and interactive study together. The youth meet in several different rooms depending on their age. Dedicated teachers lead each class through a variety of activities designed to lead them to a deeper understanding of God and to nurture their faith.
What should I expect during worship
Our worship follows a traditional Presbyterian liturgy but uses a blend of contemporary Christian music and traditional hymns accompanied on our beautiful pipe organ. You will see people in a variety of fashions from jeans and T-shirts to more formal clothing. Don’t forget to pick up a cup of coffee or hot chocolate in the narthex to enjoy during worship.
