Pentecost is widely understood to be the "birthday" of the Church.  Its very beginning.  We celebrate this with beautiful colors of red and blue which symbolize the fire and wind that was dramatically present on that day.

Pentecost is widely understood to be the "birthday" of the Church.  Its very beginning.  We celebrate this with beautiful colors of red and blue which symbolize the fire and wind that was dramatically present on that day.

Sunday, May 15

We don't often celebrate Pentecost with as much excitement as we will on this coming Sunday morning.  This Sunday we will be baptizing eight youth and adults, welcoming them into the life of faith and into the community of the Church.  As with any celebration...the more the merrier.  Join us as together we practice this central act of faith, baptism.

Following our worship, stay for an all church chili luncheon.  In recognition of the events of Pentecost, wind and fiery tongues of flame over the heads of the early followers of Jesus, we will enjoy some fire on the table.  Chili of varying levels of heat will be served, along with salads and cornbread.  Not to be missed.

Rev. David J. Wood will be preaching this Sunday

We Welcome 15 Youth to our Congregation

This large and enthusiastic Confirmation Class have been working with Rev. Rebecca Anderson each week for nine months as they have come to this important decision.  Come support our youth as they stand up in front of the congregation to claim this faith as their own, to claim full membership in the church.

A special presentation to the confirmands and a reception following the service will be a part of the morning.

What to expect when you join us

Our Sunday Worship Service is at 10 am.

What to expect when you join us on Sunday morning-
Our service tends toward what most folks would consider traditional, with hymns and the accompaniment of our beautiful organ or piano.  We’re a congregation that loves to sing and we are often led in learning new songs by our choir.  Each time we gather, we strive to generate a worship service that honors God, nurtures faith, relates to everyday life — and inspires hope.

Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of every month. We believe the Communion Table is not ours, but Christ’s, and so it is open to all.

Following worship we always gather for fellowship and refreshments.  We enjoy getting to know visitors, and it’s a great time to find out who we are, what we are all about.

Please, come and join us!
