Sunday Activities


Sunday school is a wonderful learning opportunity in an informal setting. Pull up an easy chair to listen and discuss.  Lucy Jacob leads discussion on, "Glory Days," by Max Lucado. We meet in the parlor at 9:00 a.m.  



Sunday School is for children from age five up through the sixth grade. Children Sunday school begins with children participating in the worship service.  After the “Children’s Message” at about 10:50 a.m. they are escourted by their teacher to the Sunday School room.


A nursery, staffed by an adult, is also available during the worship service.  This is located at the northwest corner of the fellowship hall and is for infants and children up to the age of four.



Snacks and drinks are usually served immediately after the service. It’s a time to relax, recharge, and make and renew friendships. On some special Sundays there are meals following worship. Everyone who worships with us is invited and encouraged to stay after worship to enjoy this time of food and fellowship.

We hope you'll find our Church a warm and friendly place to be. No matter what your reason for visiting, we want you to feel comfortable and relaxed.

Throughout the worship service you'll be able to join with others to share the peace and love of Jesus Christ. At the conclusion of the worship service, please join us for refreshments in the Fellowship Hall.

There are events nearly every day of the week we think you'll enjoy. From Sunday morning worship to various Bible study groups and youth and children programs, there is something for everyone. And everyone is welcome.

For more information about these events, see Calendar of Events.
