We Are the Church

Since March we’ve been reminding ourselves that, as the old Sunday school song goes: “The church is not a building, the church is not a steeple, the church is not a resting place, the church is a people." That’s our theme this fall. It’s a different kind of fall, but we are still the church and we are still committed to forming and deepening faith through worship, learning, fellowship, and service, in ways old and new and ever adapting, ever reforming.

In addition to the online worship service below, on Sunday mornings there's also Zoom Bible Studies from 9-9:45 am, a Zoom Children's Sermon from 9:45-10 am, and a socially distant abbreviated in-person worship service with Holy Communion from 10:30-11:10 am. Contact the church office for more information and Zoom links.

We are glad you are part of our church, whether online or in-person, and we pray that through it you find grace and hope.
