Rest for Your Soul, Joy for Next Week

Modern life is often hurried, filled with hardship, and an endless maze of obligations. But Jesus calls out to us:

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Finding rest in Him on Sunday, we also find joy in serving Him the next week. We think that’s worth inviting you to experience!

Sunday Service Time: 10:00am

What to expect

Depending on your church background, our service may feel familiar or be entirely new. Regardless of your background, we trust our liturgy will help keep your focus where it belongs: on the Triune God, His Word, and the gospel.

Children and Church

We encourage parents to bring their children into worship with them (Matt 19:14). Though this can seem a bit daunting at first, families typically find that their children adapt quite well to the service. And, our liturgy is designed to be meaningful and interactive even to little ones who can’t yet talk or read. Our goal is to so raise our children in worshipping God that their earliest memories of church aren’t ones of being segregated off with other kids but always being summoned into God’s presence.

But having young children in worship can and does create some challenges. Don’t worry--we’ve all been there and understand! If you think your child might be distracting others or has some other need, you’re more than welcome to take them out of the sanctuary and into the fellowship hall, which serves as our cry room. From there you’ll still be able to hear the service and return once your child is ready.

Responsive Reading and Singing

Throughout worship, we have various responsive readings and also sing a variety of hymns, psalms, and historic service music. Before the service begins, our church greeter will make sure to answer any questions you may have about the bulletin. Click here to view a sample PDF of our bulletin.

What should I wear?

In a very real sense, you should come as you are and know that you will be welcomed regardless of your clothes. But more important than the what question is why? Clothing demonstrates what is in our heart. Come dressed to meet our Holy and Loving Father, who prizes godly beauty, modesty, humility, and excellence--not what label you’re wearing.

How Long?

Our service averages an hour and a half and the sermon about 40 minutes.
