About Worship & Music

Based in the Reformed Tradition, the worship experience includes the reading and preaching of the Scriptures as well as expressions of prayer and praise. Music is a central part of worship with an exceptional program of music adding depth and vitality to the worship experience. The participation of children is valued in worship. Secured child care is provided for children up through age four, if desired.

We celebrate ”Open Communion” which means that if you are a baptized member of another Christian denomination you are welcome to share this sacrament with us. Communion is generally served on a monthly basis as part of the worship service.
