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
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.
Grace and peace to you in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord!
A Message From Pastor Gary
One of the joys of being the humans God made us is the joy of learning. Yes, kids may make jokes about going back to school, but more often than not they are excited about it, at least at first. I’ve seen a middle schooler who was very discouraged about school, who had had lots of negative experiences, when he got the help he needed in an after-school program, when he actually learned and did well—I’ve seen the joy break across his face!
It’s a new school year, and let’s all enroll, shall we? Whether we are 5 or 85, we can sign up to learn—and it’s a beautiful thing. (I remember one article I read that the habit of lifelong learning is one of the habits that is most powerful in the factors determining mental health as one gets older.) It’s a beautiful thing at all ages.
In the book of Ephesians, the apostle Paul is almost ecstatic about what we Christians, we men and women, boys and girls who follow Jesus—about what we can learn!! Paul exclaims about God teaching us, in chapter 1, “with all wisdom and insight he has made known to us the mystery of his will!” A few lines later, in the same letter, Paul writes to his friends in Christ, saying “I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know him, so that, with the eyes of your heart enlightened, you may know what is the hope to which he has called you!” Paul is clearly very excited about what we are learning as Christians, and what we have yet to learn as Christians. You could say that Paul sees the Christian life as an exploration of going ever and ever deeper into a rich and rewarding forest of knowledge—of Jesus Christ.
As we approach the kick-off of our new Sunday school classes on September 11th, I urge you my dear brothers and sisters at every age, step into a class or small group with joy and anticipation! If you already are familiar with Bible study with others, you know what I’m talking about. If you do not yet know this joy, this privilege, oh, please, I beg of you for your own joy and enriching in the grace of our Lord, try out a class. If you wonder which would be best for you, I would love to discuss with you which one might best fit where you are right now in your journey. But they are all good! I would encourage also, you parents and grandparents, to set a habit, now, at this beginning of the school year, of bringing your kids to a classroom here in the school of Christ. I will be preaching through the wonderful book of Ephesians—that can be part of our learning together—but I hope very much that you will (if you haven’t already) find a home in a group who are “under the Word.” Jesus said that “man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” Learn Jesus, the Living Word, by sitting in affectionate Christian fellowship with others—learning Him through the written word. The Bible. Through the power of the Spirit, the Bible teaches you Jesus, the Living Word of God.
