Sunday School and Worship

​​​Sunday gatherings begin with a biscuit and coffee breakfast in the social hall at 9:15 am. During this time congregants connect with each other, and God... even if unaware! At 9:45 am we go to Sunday School. There is a class for everyone! In Sunday School participants learn and grow as they study the Bible and reflect on Christ together!


Worship begins at 11 am in the sanctuary. Our worship service is comprised of congregational singing, prayer, scriptures and reflection. We sing traditional hymns as well as upbeat contemporary choruses. Our practice of prayer includes spoken prayers as well as praying in silence. Sermons are derived through scriptures and are both challenging and thought provoking. Pastor Steve's style is confessional in style and conversational in form. Communion is observed the first Sunday of each month. We practice open communion, which means regardless of where or if you are a church member, if you are a Jesus follower we invite you to participate in communion with us!


Worship services here are geared to creating both space and intimacy for the worshiper to connect with God and other worshipers. Dress is diverse, so come as you are. You are both invited and encouraged to join us!




Pizza and Grace

Pizza and Grace small group meets every Tuesday at 6:30 pm in the social hall. Currently we are considering Reel Faith, a movie clip, scripture text and prayer that help teach the theme. This is an informal discussion group that enjoys listening for God as we connect with each other! Open to all, each is invited, please come join us!


Midweek Service

Our midweek service is Wednesday evening and begins with dinner at 6 pm in the social hall and continues with Bible study led by Pastor Steve at 6:30 pm. Dinner this Cole slaw, cornbread and dessert. We ask for a small donation of $5 to help offset the cost of this meal. Reservations are needed and can be made by calling the church off  (7574286562).


At 6:30 pm Pastor Steve will lead us in Bible study! Currently we are studying So You Want Your Church to Grow?  This is a challenging study about church growth, what it really takes to grow, and asks the question "Do you really want your church to grow?" We'd love to see you for dinner, fellowship and study! Come join us!

We welcome you as you seek to connect with the God of all grace and mercy.

Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost

This Sunday we reflect on Mark 8:27-38 and consider the message Who is Jesus to You? This will be a time to personally consider who Jesus is to each of us. May the grace and peace of God through the Christ be with YOU! --P.Steve
