Our Sunday Services are at 11 a.m., and 6 p.m. All
blend traditional elements and hymns with some more contemporary
choruses. Over the course of a month, you can expect to hear a mix of
congregational singing, choir, ensembles, trios, instrumentalists, and
solos. There is no rigid dress code, though evening services tend
to be more informal. Services last about one hour. There is also Preschool Worship (age 4-K)
every Sunday in room 210. Bible Study for all ages begins at 9:45 a.m. The
church has a "cry room" equipped with closed circuit TV of the services,
as well as a nursery for birth through age 4 during all services. All
nursery workers (paid or volunteer) have passed background checks. In
the evening, during the 6 p.m. service, Mission Friends meet (for age 4-K)
in room 210,
and CA's for grades 1-6 in room 311.
The congregation itself is a mix of ethnicities from all
walks of life. While predominately "anglo," we have a Chinese
Mission, with outreaches to the Philippines and Africa. Church members
include African-Americans, Filipinos, & Koreans, to name just a few.
