Gather Sunday September 10

We traditionally kick-off the church year on this second Sunday in September.  It's our way of saying welcome back after trips, camps and time away from the regular routines of the non-summer months.  

All children and youth programming begins this Sunday.  Jr. High students begin their class at 9:00 am, meeting with our Associate Minister, Colin Knapp.  Children join Jennifer Wood, our Director of Children's Ministries during our morning worship at 10:00 am. 

We'll be back in the Sanctuary for Worship, our Chancel Choir in place, David Wood will be preaching--please join us as we begin a new program year together...and then stay after for a cookout and picnic in the Memorial Garden.  Rumor has it that and Ice Cream will be on site for a sweet ending to the festivities! 







Jr. High Sunday school Begins at 9:00

Our Associate Minister, Colin Knapp, provides a warm and welcoming class, with breakfast and lively conversations about the Bible, faith, church history and contemporary issues.  All Jr. High youth are invited to join Colin in the youth room at 8:45 to allow time to get breakfast and maybe play a quick game of ping pong before class begins.

Our Senior High program begins next Sunday at 11:30.  Contact Colin for all the details.

For any questions about the Jr. High or Sr. High programs contact Colin at:

Gather Sunday is the First Sunday of our Nursery - 4th Grade Program

On Sunday, September 10 our children's Sunday school program year begins. Beginning at 9:45, infants - kindergarten are welcome to join our teachers for a morning of music, Bible stories and fun.  First time visitors should plan to arrive a little early to help little ones get acclimated to the new faces and surroundings.  

Our 1 - 4th graders will begin their morning in church with their families, leaving for their class during worship, following the children's story.  Our fall season will focus on Compassion and following in the way of Jesus to understand how God would have us care for one another.

    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!
