Home Worship

Worship

Join us in worship any Sunday at 10am!

Worship is usually held upstairs in the sanctuary. The building is accessible for wheelchairs and strollers through the ramp on the West side of the building, by the entrance to the Laurel Hill Cemetery.

Child care is available in the nursery for infants through age 3. We also have special seating for babies, toddlers, and nursing mothers in the back of the sanctuary for those who prefer their little ones to stay in the service. Children age 4 through grade 4 are invited to participate in Sunday School (Worship Workshop) following the children’s message. 

Our current worship series is:

 

Alone/Together
Our Lenten theme focuses on Spiritual practices. How do we connect to God as individuals, when we’re alone? And how can we connect more deeply to God with others in community?
