Come Worship With Us!

Sermon Podcasts

You can listen to and/or download a podcast of recent sermons posted on the new Sermon Links page.

Beginning this year, we are holding “Family Worship” times during the 10 a.m. worship service on 5th Sundays (which generally happen quarterly).

Wait, you say, we already have family worship! What makes this different? Yes, we have families - oldsters, youngsters and in-betweeners in worship.

On 5th Sundays, we will have some of each of these participate in the service leadership (and not only in ushering and greeting). We will have more familyfriendly songs, scriptures and sermon (shorter, too). And we will encourage families to worship with their youngsters who usually play in the nursery. Afterward everyone’s invited to gather for juice (okay, coffee, too), snacks and conversation in the Parlor, as usual.

Please plan on joining the lovely, lively worship on July 29th!

Why Bother with Choirs?

Singing in Choir...

Provides a healthy creative and artistic balance to heavily data-based education.

Is therapeutic, giving singers the chance to momentarily put aside their other pressures and concerns.
Is an effective vehicle for developing faith using music and church history.
Develops poise under pressure.

Teaches the value of teamwork.

Develops young people’s sense of culture and sophistication by adding beauty and aesthetic depth to worship.

Teaches the value of careful preparation in reaching goals.

Teaches a sense of responsibility and setting priorities.

Provides the foundation for a lifetime enjoyment of music.

Gives members a sense of pride and self-worth by showing singers that their individual leadership, demeanor and discipline make a significant to the success of the group
