Worship Schedule

Due to the current pandemic health concerns, we are meeting online as Virch - Virtual Church - join us online each week using this information.  And our 10am worship service will also be live-streamed via our Facebook page.

==============================================================================================

Sunday morning worship is at the heart of our community. During the first half of the worship service, we hear The Word, and reflect on it during a sermon or discussion.  The second half of the service is Holy Communion, when we break bread together and share wine, as a symbol of God among us.

Grape juice and gluten-free wafers are available upon request at all services. All who seek God and are drawn to Jesus Christ are welcome to receive Holy Communion.

Our Healing Ministry offers each member of the congregation the opportunity to have one of our healing ministers pray over them at the altar during Holy Communion. You may also request private healing prayer after the service.

Each week, immediately after the service, we have a chance to visit together during Coffee Hour. This important time of the week, hosted by a church family, allows us to catch up with old and new friends.
