We have two services on Sundays at 8:15 and 10:00 am. Our Sunday School begins with the 10 am service; children and youth go to their classes after the children’s sermon.
On Sunday, December 16th, 10:00 am our second service will be upstairs in the Fellowship Hall -- the children and youth will be leading the service. Refreshments follow; bring goodies to share and eat! (A special guest will arrive to see the kids during the refreshment period!)

Christmas Eve Services will be 4:00 pm / family service and 10:00 pm / candlelight -- both in the sanctuary (Monday, December 24th).
