Upon our return to in-person gatherings, our Sunday schedule will return to the following:

8:30–9:30 AM  Early Church Through Zoom

Early Church is an intimate worship experience. It is a venture in “creating church,” taking its name from its gathering time (early on Sunday mornings) and its aspiration (to capture the spirit of the earliest Christians). This service features prayer, music, and discussion of the lectionary text for the day.

NOTE: Early Church is also currently meeting over Zoom; please contact for the Zoom link.

10–11 AM  Communal Worship Through Zoom

Our larger service is open to all ages and features prayers, choir anthems, hymns, Scripture readings, a sermon (the prompting), and an offering. We celebrate Communion on the first Sunday of the month, where all are welcome to the table. After worship, we enjoy snacks and conversation in the back of the sanctuary.
