We are an historic congregation with an eye to the future; traditional worshippers who welcome new songs and new liturgies. We enjoy fellowship meals together and we also enjoy opening our doors to the community during events such as our roast beef dinner, Cookie Walk and a fundraiser called a Tricky Tray.

We emphasize pastoral care for our seniors and we also encourage our young ones in multi-generational Sunday school classes and Vacation Bible School. Our youth group engages in both mission and in fellowship as well as learn about serving in the church.

Outreach is a vital part of our church, and we assist many in our community through various outreach programs including lunch each Friday hosted by Community Kitchen, and outreach assistance.

We hope you will join us one Sunday soon and see what we’re all about!
Learn about God
Understand God
Experience God
Let’s learn about Him together!

Throughout the year, our Praise Service which features contemporary music begins at 9:30 am each Sunday in the Sanctuary. We then gather for Sunday School (children and adults) which begins at 9:30 am. Our Traditional Service takes place in the sanctuary at 11:00 am. We also have a Sunday School for all ages which takes place during the 11:00 service in the Upper Room.

During these summer months, we gather as One in our sanctuary for one service at 10:00 am.

Grace and peace to you in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord!

A Message From Our Pastor

It is so often the good that pulls us. Vacations are good— they are wonderful—and they pull us. The call of the beach, the call of the woods, the call of the mountains, the call of overseas, and different places, cultures, languages. Travel! Weddings are good—they are wonderful!—and they call us away to friends and family and old friends and family, to celebrate. Weddings have a pull. And weddings are good.

The good that calls us and exercises a pull on our lives is not just, of course, that which is filled with obvious joy or pleasure. Good things that are not always easy also pull. Our duty and our love also pull us into caring for someone who is either sick, or aging, or struggling. This call of ours to serve and care and accompany—this is a good thing that is pulling at us.

 

Summertime has a lot of pull, doesn’t it? A lot of wonderful pull from good things, that are particularly strong in summertime, such as vacation, the desire to enjoy the good weather and the outdoors. These attractions are alongside all the usual “good pulls” of our privilege and our duty and our calling—to serve, to care for, to provide, to be responsible. So it is not only that which is “against God” that has a strong pull on us, it is also that which is of God and even very good that exercises a pull on our spirits, our time, our focus, our energies. Whether these attractions, these gravities, these field forces are morally beautiful or are morally suspect, in either case,

they are all pulling, aren’t they? It’s a common experience to feel like we are “being pulled in a thousand directions,” as the exaggeration—the cliché—expresses it. It may be a cliché, but it feels true to our experience!

In summer, when that which draws us includes so much that is life-giving and good, now as much as at any other time, it is best to remember our center. Where are we, at our center? When we are not being “pulled” where are we located? Who are you, if there

is a you that is not only defined by things or duties or joys pulling you in one direction or another?

You know who you are. You know where you are. Your center is in Jesus. He says to you, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” With all that is drawing you right now, remember your center. Remember to spend time daily, centering and recentering yourself in Jesus, his words, his whole life and action for you—in himself, the Word. Seek you, all of you, each one of you, first, the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these other things will be “added unto you,” as the time-honored King James translates it. All the other pulls and needs and commitments and even sacrifices, they will all fall into place and make sense—even your losses—as you continue to center yourself in Jesus and his grace toward you. His love for you. His constant focus upon you and his constant reaching out to you, through his Holy Spirit. Your heart, your joy, your meaning, your belonging to a higher purpose, your life, your rest—are in Him. “For in him,” as the Scripture says, “we live and move and have our being.”
