Worship

Other Worship Events

Holy Communion

On the first Sunday of the month and on special occasions, we celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion. All persons seeking a closer relationship with Christ are invited to receive. Everyone is welcome at the table of grace!

Holy Baptism

We believe Baptism signifies entrance into the household of faith, and is a symbol of repentance and inner cleansing from sin, a representation of new birth in Christ Jesus and a mark of Christian discipleship. We believe children are under the atonement of Christ and as heirs of the Kingdom of God are candidates for Christian Baptism. Children of believing parents through Baptism become the special responsibility of the Church. They should be nurtured and led to personal acceptance of Christ, and by profession of faith confirm their Baptism.

Advent

The four Sundays before Christmas Day we prepare to celebrate Christ’s birth. Special Services are held during Advent. On Christmas Eve we celebrate our Lord’s birth by worshiping together, singing Christmas carols, receiving Holy Communion, and concluding with a Candle Light Service.

The Lenten Season

During the Lenten Season we prepare to celebrate the Resurrection of Christ our Savior. We remember that we are in need of salvation from our sins both individually and corporately. Prayers of Confession and Pardon are an important part of our worship during this time of the Christian Year. As we draw closer to Easter Sunday we begin to focus on Christ’s sacrificial death upon the Cross and what his death means for our lives. The Lenten Season closes with Holy Week as the church remembers with great sincerity our Lord’s Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday; the institution of the Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion) on Maundy Thursday; and, Christ Passion and death on Good Friday.

Special Services during the Lenten Season

  • Ash Wednesday
  • Easter Cantata
  • Palm / Passion Sunday
  • Maundy Thursday
  • Good Friday / Tenebrae Service
  • The Easter Season

    Easter Sunday is one of the most joyous occasions in the life of the congregation. We celebrate with great enthusiasm the Resurrection of Christ Jesus and the gift of eternal life he offers to all. The choir sings Handel’s "Hallelujah Chorus" and we go out with joy to be "Easter people!"
