Our worship is Bible-based, traditional in content, and rich in music and fellowship.  While being traditional, our worship services are friendly and informal as we take the time to greet one another, share prayer requests and celebrate special days in the life of members, friends and the congregation.  We celebrate the sacrament of Holy Baptism whenever we have the joyful opportunity, and share the Sacrament of Holy Communion once a month, keeping the feast as commanded by our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ until His return.





Our Sunday morning worship begins at 10:30 a.m.  Adult Bible Study begins at 9:00 a.m.  Children's Church/Sunday School begins at 10:30 a.m.
