We consider worship to be God’s gift to us. For that reason, worship is the most important thing we do as a people of faith. It provides us the regular opportunity to express our gratitude to God for the mercy and grace with which God gifts us. From our worship comes the motivation and purpose for our ministry to and with our community. All things considered, we take worship very seriously.
But that doesn’t mean our worship is somber. While you will find our worship to be traditional in form, we offer it with a warmth and friendliness that marks the collective personality of our church family. Each worship service is a blend of the liturgical and contemporary, reflecting the Christian seasons as well as the purpose of our ministry.
The pulpit is centrally located in the sanctuary to symbolize the importance of the Word proclaimed. Our worship embraces and celebrates the presence of the One who has given us the opportunity to express words about the Word, Jesus Christ, and also serves as a teaching point from which we deepen our understanding of the faith.
A large number of our church members are engaged in worship leadership. From the greeters to the ushers, from the sanctuary choir to the handbell ringers, from children’s and youth choirs to dramatic presentations and reading of scripture, we offer our gifts in gratitude to the God who has authored them.
Come and worship with us!

THE APOSTLES’ CROSS
During our Centennial year of 2013, we redesigned the baptistry which now features The Apostles’ Cross. Each arm has three points, for a total of twelve, representing the twelve disciples (apostles) of Jesus. In addition, the points are grouped in threes on each arm and represent the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. They also stand for the three virtues mentioned by Paul in 1 Corinthians 13: faith, hope, and love.
The color scheme is a continuation of the colors used in the original baptistry mural which has been replaced. These “watery” colors are reminiscent of the Jordan River in which Jesus was baptized.
The dove is a symbol of Jesus’ baptism by John, when God came down and said, “This is my Son, with whom I am well pleased.” The dove has a branch in its beak, which stands for the Old Testament promise of hope after the flood.
