  • What is the 8:45 Am service like?

    At 8:45 AM on Sunday's, we gather in the Sanctuary for a "come as your are" worship service. The tone is casual with a more contemporary flavor using piano, guitar, and modern songs that invite us into the presence of God. There is a time of prayer and preaching as well. It's a great opportunity for Sunday worship, especially if you have a busy day planned with family or other activities. 

  • what is the 10:45 am service like?

    At 10:45 AM our worship service is more blended, often contemporary and traditional worship elemets. We gather and engage the scripture, enjoy various types of music depending on the theme of the day, join in pray togther, and participate in the sacrament of Holy Communion (1st Sunday). 

  • what are the sermons like?

    Pastor Rick preaches with the singular goal of helping people learn how to make changes in their lives that help them drawer closer to God. Rick prepares each message with the goal of helping everyone connect in some way to our united mission and purpose of Loving God <> Loving Others <> and Serving the World.  


    Rick's style of preaching is easy going, informative, and challenging. He talks about the real life that each of us lives every day, and not the make-believe fairy tale life that so many people long for. Rick preaches that life is hard and not for sissies. The same can be said for faith! As a result, people are encouraged "not to check in their brains at the door!" Rick preaches in a style that helps people look deeply into their hearts and minds in an effort to connect in a real, individual way with God.
