The morning service begins at 8:45. We have an order of service that we follow each week. We generally sing psalms and hymns from the Trinity Hymnal Baptist Edition to a piano, but sometimes we have inserts. We have deliberately chosen not to add a lot of new technologies to the service for a variety of reasons, and you can be assured we do have reasons for this, reasons that we love to share with others. Because our worship is more historically Protestant than contemporary, some feel like it is an imposition if they have children who are noisy. We do offer a nursery through 36 months of age. But we do not have "Children's Church," because we believe that children need to learn how to worship God with the whole congregation. It is as much for them as for anyone else. We want all ages to be near to the means of grace so that God might be pleased to use the means he has promised to save them, and so that they might come to learn how to worship our great God with the whole body of Christ in the local church.
Between 10:15 - 10:45 we have snacks. We share this time with the other church we share space with. There is coffee, lots of munchies, juice, and best of all, great conversation to be had. All visitors are invited to join us for this time of food and fellowship.
At the present time we have one Adult Sunday School class. We are going through the book of Revelation. We also have a class for preschoolers, elementary, middle and high school, and a nursery for infants.
Sack Lunch Sunday
We recently switched our Sunday Evening service to a sack lunch Sunday. This is every other week. It is much less formal than the morning service, which we view as especially a time of covenant renewal of tremendous importance. During the evening we kick back, have a time of hymn singing picked by the congregation, a time of prayer together, and a study that is perhaps more like a class than a sermon.
Midweek Zoom Meeting
Tuesday evenings we meet on Zoom to share life and pray for one another
Every other Saturday the men meet at Pinocchio's restaurant (first and third Saturday, 8:00am)
The women meet at the same restaurant on the second Saturday of each month
