We offer two worship services on regular Sunday Mornings, an 11:00am Liturgical Worship Service and 8:30am Awakening Worship Service. During the summer and on 5th Sundays, we have a Combined Worship Service at 10:00am.
 

The Liturgical Worship Service
............ .........11:00am in the Sanctuary............ .........

Elements of Worship
Our Liturgical Worship Service includes many traditional Presbyterian elements reflecting five actions centered on the Word of God: (1) Gathering Around the Word, (2) Proclaiming the Word, (3) Responding to the Word, (4) The Sealing of the Word, and (5) Bearing and Following the Word into the World.

Gathering Around the Word
Worship begins as we gather and recognize Godís presence among us. The choir helps us to prepare for worship with a choral introit. We are called to worship, sing a song of praise, confess our sin together, and are assured of the forgiveness and new life that God gives us in Jesus.

Proclaiming the Word
We hear Godís word to us as the scriptures are read and proclaimed in a sermon. During this part of worship the pastor also has a word with the children and the choir sings an anthem.

Responding to the Word
We respond to the Good News of Jesus Christ, his claim upon our lives, and Godís activity in the world, by offering ourselves in lives of thanksgiving and service. During this part of our worship we affirm our faith together, pray for the church and the world, and give our offerings. We also periodically have presentations about our ongoing mission projects, commission mission teams, install church officers, and make other responses to how Christ is calling us to be disciples

The Sealing of the Word
On the first Sunday of the month or on special Sundays we celebrate the Lordís Supper together as we share bread and wine/juice as Christ did with his disciples on the night of his arrest. All who believe in Christ as their Lord and Savior are welcome to share with us in the Lordís Supper. During this portion of worship we also celebrate the baptism of children brought by their parents and adults who are recognizing Christís claim upon their lives and readiness to be members of His church. We baptize infants and children as a witness to the truth that Godís love claims people even before they are able to respond. We baptize adults as a witness that Godís gift of grace calls for a response of faithfulness.

Bearing and Following the Word into the World
As the service comes to a close we commit ourselves to discipleship, receive the benediction, and depart in song.



Music
We have a full adult Chancel Choir led by our Director of Music. They offer special music such as the Introit and Anthem each Sunday. Hymns are sung out of our hymnal. The selections usually emphasize the theme of the Scripture and sermon. Occasionally, we have our Children's Choir, Handbell Choir, or Ensembles join us in worship. Our Organist accompanies on the full pipe organ or piano.
 

 

The Awakening Worship Service
.....................8:30am in the Fellowship Hall...... ..............

Elements of Worship
Our Awakening Worship Service has a modern, relaxed feel, yet the structure of the service still contains traditional Presbyterian elements centered on the Word of God. This service often provides opportunities for worshippers to respond to the message through action, reflection, and prayer. Dress is casual and coffee and doughnuts are available for the early risers' enjoyment.

We share in communion by intinction (pictured to the left) on the first Sunday of each month and/or special occasions.

 

Music
We have an Awakening Praise Band led by our Director of Music. Many instruments are involved, including guitars, drums, brass, keyboard, cello, and violin. Songs are projected on the big screen via a worship presentation program. The selections usually emphasize the theme of the Scripture and sermon. Occasionally, we have our Children's Choir, Handbell Choir, or Ensembles join us in worship.
 


Combined Worship Service
.................10:00am in the Sanctuary.................

Elements of Worship
We enjoy Combined Worship during the summer months, as well as on every 5th Sunday or on special occasions when we desire for the whole congregation to be gathered together. The service features all of the normal liturgical aspects we normally have in both services, including responsive readings, the Doxology and Gloria Patri, and the Lordís Prayer. The summer services begin the last Sunday in May and wrap up in August.
 

Music
The music for our Combined Services includes both familiar hymns and praise songs. Songs are projected on the big screen via a worship presentation program. The selections usually emphasize the theme of the Scripture and sermon. The music is led by both our Praise Band and our adult Chancel Choir. Generally the Choir will take the month of July off.
