Reformation Sermon Series

This Sunday David Wood will conclude his sermon series on the commemoration of the 500th Anniversary of The Reformation.  Central to this series has been the question of what difference The Reformation made not just then…but now.  How does something that happened 500 years ago shape our understanding today?

Last Sunday, Oct. 22:  

“The Reformation of our Understanding of Ourselves”

Sunday, Oct 29:  Reformation Sunday — 500th Anniversary

“The Reformation of our Understanding of the Church”

    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!
