Wholly Worship

We bring our whole selves to worship to be immersed in Christ’s holy-making power. This service draws from the whole of our tradition across time. Led by our wonderful choir, organ, piano and bells, with liturgical prayer and strong preaching, we are drawn into the presence of God to be made whole.

Faith Formation

Faith formation is about nurturing our life in Christ by engaging with scripture, prayer, conversation and other spiritual disciplines. On Sundays at 9:30 a.m., children from preschool through grade 5 can learn and worship in a style just for them, while junior and senior high youth gather to grow in faith together and adults seek the ways of Christ together. At 11 a.m., children and youth worship with their families while other adults have an additional opportunity for Christian Formation.

Experience! Worship

We Experience! worship with children of all ages. Our unique inter-generational blend helps us to Experience! Christ face to face in a hands-on way. Led by our exceptional Praise Band with conversational prayer and interactive preaching, we Experience! the power of Christ to make us new.
