SERVICES & SACRAMENTS

We offer one blended worship service each Sunday at 10:00 a.m.  Led by our Chancel Choir and Pastoral Staff, the service follows a traditionally reformed order of worship and honors the heritage and richness of the Presbyterian Worship service.
Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism is an experience of the real presence of God in Christ in the lives of individuals as they are presented by their parents for baptism or presented by themselves to profess their faith in Jesus Christ. Baptism celebrates the sovereign love of God that chooses for us long before we can choose for God. Whether presented as infants, children or as adults, the sacrament of Baptism celebrates the covenant God has made with us, our individual commitment to that covenant, and the support and role the Family of Faith plays in our spiritual journey.

The Lord's Supper

The Sacrament of the Lord's Supper, commonly called Communion, celebrates the real presence of God in Christ in the life of the Church as they participate in sharing of the Lord's Supper in worship. Remembering the Last Supper, our theology teaches that Christ's presence is found in the meeting of the elements of bread and juice as they meet with our faithful hearts together as a Family of Faith. We celebrate the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper eight - ten times a year and provide home communion on most Sundays when this sacrament is celebrated in worship. If you are unable to attend worship on a Sunday when this sacrament is celebrated due to illness or other reasons, and would like it brought to you in your home or hospital room, please contact Ruth Smith.
