Worship ~~~
Special seasonal services include an Ash Wednesday Service, a solemn Maundy Thursday communion service, and then our Easter Sunday celebration. Worshipers look forward to bringing fresh-cut spring flowers to adorn a large cross for “flowering of the cross.”  (Read about Wednesday Ecumenical Lenten Services below.) 

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Advent brings an enormous tree decorated with hand-made chrismons welcoming worshipers as they enter the narthex.  Seasonal services include a pageant service featuring the choir and the children as well as our Christmas Eve candlelight service.

​Children are a very important part of our church family and are always welcome. For the youngest children we provide a nursery with child care. For older children a brief lesson is included in the morning service.  Youth choir sings during services on special occasions.

​Following the service, many people look forward to the coffee hour, which is held in the Makemie Room.

​For easy access to our Sanctuary, a special lift is located on the Lee Street side of the church.​​

Our Sunday worship celebrations are vital to our life as a beloved community of faith. At the 11:00 worship service, led by our pastor, participants experience a service open to all with prayer, special music, Holy Scripture, God’s story and personal silent meditation.
