9:30 a.m. - Worship Service & Sunday School through 5th Grade
In small groups of people seeking to explore spirituality and faith in a way that calls us, we go deep. Here are our small group ministries in addition to our youth groups, mission trips, and confirmation class. We’re always open to starting new ones!
Bake & Freeze Ministry – Established as a way to supplement the efforts of Fellowship in providing meals to “Our Pilgrims”. It was challenging to get meals on short notice to those in need, so having prepared frozen meals at the ready alleviates that challenge.

Chancel Choir – Leads and supports the congregation in the singing of hymns and musical responses and provides choral anthems and/or solos within the Sunday morning service.
