Worship is…


Gathering with others, praising and enjoying our relationship with God.

Worship is also a time to remember and to consider God’s blessings in our life and to feel God’s presence in a real way.  It is a time to praise God for what we have freely received from Jesus Christ, alongside of others who are on this journey of life with us.

It is something we do each week at 9:00 am and 10:30 am on Sundays.

Sunday Worship is offered inside and online at 9:00 am and we meet also outside in the parking lot at 10:30 am.

You are welcomed to join with us as we worship our Lord!

On Sunday, July 14, we hear the not-so-good story of Herod the king beheading John the Baptist.

 

Don’t be like Herod. 

 

But how do we do the right thing when we are pressured to do the wrong thing?

Invite Me In

 

When you invite someone to church, your invitation doesn’t have to be complex, or driven by guilting them into coming. Watch and hear the voice of someone who could be coming to our church this Sunday.

Here are our recent worship videos

This week is a rollercoaster of worship.  We begin with the joyous triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem, and our children are singing as we celebrate Palm Sunday.  And we finish our service remembering the last hours of Jesus’ life, his death on the cross, and his burial.  Finally, we are left waiting for the surprise that we know is coming on Easter morning…

This week we hear about Jesus, at the very beginning of his ministry, predicting that he will be killed… and then on the third day, rise from the dead. 

 

If he can pull this off, well that just might change the world – and the rules of the universe!

This week we hear Jesus telling his disciples that he will be rejected by the religious authorities and be killed.  Simon Peter grabs Jesus, and scolds Jesus, and tells him that he’s wrong.

We will also consider when we have experienced “thin places” in our lives – and how we can open ourselves up to experience more of them.

Christmas Eve, December 24, 2023

We joyfully greet our members and their loved ones and all our guests as we worship Jesus at our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service!


We remember together, with awe and gratitude how God shone his light into our darkness on that first Christmas. We pray that we may be bearers of his light to all who languish in the darkness of poverty, illness and fear. May we share with the world the light that shines from the face of our Lord Jesus Christ.
