On Sundays centuries-old rituals and God’s message of hope and love combine to inspire and challenge us to face a noisy, complicated world with grace and love.

We welcome you to participate in and experience a transformative order of worship, beautiful choral music, vibrant congregational singing, and inspiring sounds from the organ. The order for the service--prayers, hymns and lessons—are provided in a bulletin so that all may participate as they wish.

At the 10:30 am service, children join the a member of the clergy for the children’s sermon after Sunday School, and then join their families for the remainder of the service.

Following either service, hospitality hour in the parish hall gives everyone a chance to connect with old friends, make new ones and weave more threads into the fabric of our parish life.

Ushers at the back of the church are available at anytime to answer any questions. We hope you will help us welcome you personally by completing the Contact Us form.
