Join Us For Worship

Sundays at 9:00 a.m.

 

Our worship gatherings are opportunities for connection with one another and God, where thoughtful messages guided by scripture, inspiring music and the sharing of joys, concerns and faith experiences, are all wrapped in prayer and gratitude. 

If you would like to share your musical or technical gifts, please contact Jeff Clouser, Director of Music Ministries or Rachel Witkovsky, Worship Coordinator.

 

Special services throughout the year include: Advent and Christmas, Lent and Easter, Love Feast and Communion, Children, Youth, Young Adult, Graduation, Music Appreciation and occasional Taizé services.

 

Our worship experiences are accessible to all with an elevator, modified pews for wheelchairs, projected lyrics on large screen monitors, large print hymnals, assisted listening devices, children’s activity bags and nursery care.

LAST WEEK'S WORSHIP SERVICE 

Music Groups

Chancel Choir

We sing music by both traditional and contemporary composers. A pleasant singing voice and some note-reading abilities are recommended. We rehearse on Thursday evenings at 7:15 p.m. in the Music Room, September through May, and sing in our worship gatherings at least twice a month, September through June, including special occasions.

Canticle Bells

We perform with a five-octave set of White Chapel Handbells. Rhythmic proficiency is beneficial.  Substitute ringers are welcome. We rehearse on Wednesday evenings at 7:15 p.m. in the Sanctuary and play in worship monthly, September through May, including special occasions and handbell festivals. 

Praise Team

The group consists of a variety of instruments including guitar, violin, bass, keyboard and drums.  Other instruments and additional vocalists are welcome. We rehearse on Thursday evenings at 6:15 p.m. in the Sanctuary, throughout the year.

Ensembles

For those who are interested in participating in our music ministry but cannot commit to weekly rehearsals, please consider joining one of our vocal or instrumental ensembles. Current ensembles include low and high voices and bell quartets. Ensembles rehearse and perform a few select times throughout the church year. Note-reading ability is helpful.

 

Special Music and Accompanists

Our worship gatherings periodically use additional instrumentation to accompany our musical groups. Also, soloists and ensembles are needed for our summer worship gatherings.  Please consider offering your vocal and/or instrumental gifts in these ways.
