Local cases of COVID-19 have dropped significantly. We are now no longer requiring that masks be worn in the church building. However, due to the vulnerable population of our congregation, masks are still recommended during worship, Sunday School, Bible Studies and other church gatherings for the time being.
The pews are no-longer cordoned-off. We still encourage you to use good judgment in how you space yourself. If possible, avoid sitting directly behind or in front of another person. All meetings and Bible study gatherings can return to church with masks as an option for those participating.
We take Communion on the first Sunday of every month. One bread is broken and served face-to-face by the pastor and a tray of small cups of grape juice are served by an assistant. If you prefer to not come forward for Communion, pre-packaged cups of bread and juice are available.
Coffee and snacks are provided in the back of the sanctuary. Fellowship time after church is encouraged once again. Offering can be brought forward during the final hymn or after the service is over.
Every Sunday at 9:30
We worship together every Sunday morning from 9:30-10:30. Immediately after worship during the school year, there is a time for Sunday School for all ages. There is a traditional feel to our worship, with an informal and welcoming atmosphere. That’s why we call it “Casual Traditional.”
At this time there is no Nursery available but, there are activity bags available for kids in the sanctuary.
The dress is varied. There might be a few people wearing ties, but there will also be some guys wearing t-shirts. Same thing with the ladies, for every dress and pumps, there is also a woman in jeans and a blouse.
Pastor Robb is an energetic preacher, who seldom remains behind the pulpit. Each week he also shares a short children’s moment. If your children feel comfortable, they are welcome to come forward. If you prefer, parents can accompany their little ones up to the front.
The choir is lively, and shares rousing anthems, melodic spirituals, and introspective responses. Our African choir has musical offerings about once a month, many of the songs they share have direct English translations in addition to the native language in which they are singing. It is a truly beautiful experience to hear some of the old favorite hymns sung in two different languages at once. Who knows, you may even learn a little Swahili.
Our newly remodeled sanctuary includes a “Cafe Seating” section. These round tables, with coffee, water, and cookies nearby, offer a new way of experiencing worship. There are kids bulletins available. There is also a room adjacent to the sanctuary for parents with little ones that want a little more privacy. The room is furnished with a glider, a few activities for little ones, softer lighting, and a big window out to the worship space.
