    Sunday Service
    Our Sunday service begins at 10:00 a.m.  Plan to arrive a few minutes early to allow us to properly greet you.  But if you arrive late, no problem.  Just go up the stairs, down the hall to the end, and then take a right to find the sanctuary, where we gather on Sunday mornings.  Our service is casual with an assortment of music including traditional hymns, choir and handbell music, and contemporary songs.  Communion is served on the first Sunday of each month.  After the service we serve coffee and treats in the fellowship hall.
