Sunday Worship

Sunday, September 10, 2017
Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost

Worship Service

This service, which is in the intimate setting of the Heartt Memorial Chapel, consists of hymns, prayers, scripture readings and a sermon. There is no Sunday School during this service.


Worship Service - Rally Day

Our theme for Rally Day this year is Letting My Light Shine, which reflects how each one of us has unique gifts and talents that we need to share with one another and our community.

Please join us on Rally Day as we kick-off our new year of Sunday School and prepare to make a difference as a congregation in the coming season. At this time, we will return to our 8:15 a.m. worship service in the Chapel.

We will be combining our 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. services into one Together @ 10 service at 10:00 a.m. in the sanctuary. There will be no Sunday school this day as families are encouraged to worship together. Sunday school will begin on Sunday, September 17 at both the 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. services.


Messy Church

Messy Church is a new kind of service on the second Sunday of the month for parents and children to share. There will be a time to make crafts as a family, a short (and lively) time of gathering, and a family friendly lunch. This time will be about building community along with thinking about that greater power that is creator and love of all. It takes place in the church gym.

Please register in advance so that we can prepare food and supplies.
