What to Expect at Our Services


What to Expect at Every Service

  • A cordial welcome, even though it usually is not “in your face”

  • Comfort, as you wear the clothes that you desire to wear

  • A thoughtful sermon that focuses on the radical love of God, which also means being challenged on occasion

  • Holy Communion, offered to every sinner who is in need of grace

  • A respect for Christian tradition in worship, while never doing things simply because they’re part of the tradition

  • A human touch

  • Spiritual nourishment
