Services
We have three distinct worship services on Sunday mornings.

8:00 a.m.River Worship is contemplative in nature and includes scripture, centering music, a chant choir, weekly communion, meditative prayer, and a pastoral message. This service is held in the chapel.
9:00 a.m.Roots Worship includes scripture, hymns, choral music, and a pastoral message. This service may feel familiar as it includes acolytes, candles, and the pastors and the choir in robes. The sacrament of communion is observed the first Sunday of every month. Roots worship is held in the sanctuary.
10:30 a.m.Wings Worship features a more relaxed feel with an emphasis on scripture, acoustic ensemble music, and visual images that connect to the pastoral message. As with the Roots service, communion is served the first Sunday of every month. Wings worship is held in the sanctuary.
Worship Service Length: 8 am River Service - 45 minutes. 9 am Roots and 10:30 Wings Services - 60 minutes.

Coffee Time: Between our 9:00 am & 10:30 am worship join us in the Fellowship Hall for coffee, cookies, and conversation.

Family Room and Childcare

We welcome children of all ages to attend the worship service, but if your children become restless and you would prefer a quiet place for them to play, there is a family room available with a view and audio/visual feed of the service. Enter this room through a door to the left of the sanctuary (near the circle drive). The family room has a bathroom as well as toys and other distractions for young children.

Childcare is available at the 9 am and 10:30 am services in our nursery for children age six months to three years. Nursery staff members are experienced and friendly. The nursery also offers pagers to parents in case they are needed during the service.
