Worship with us every Sunday at 9:00 am.

Join us for a Service of the Word every Sunday, and Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month and on festival Sundays.

We are a liturgically traditional congregation, Scripturally grounded, singing hymns, using a varied but structured liturgy each week, embracing batism and Holy Communion, naming God to be Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  We intend to live our lives with a warmth toward one another, guests who might come to explore us, and our neighbors around us.  God gifts faith; we aim to be faithful in response to God and the gift of faith.


We are also presenting our live services via Zoom.  EVERYBODY IS INVITED TO JOIN IN.  Just contact Pastor Robbins using the info on our "contact us" page and he will email you an invitation to join.  It's easy.  First, install the free Zoom app on your device.  Then, using Pastor Ed's email invitation you can join in with about 3 clicks.  If you need help contact Pastor Ed.
