As a general rule, music styles will alternate every other week with traditional services on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month and contemporary services on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month.  Hub City Radio graciously accommodated our change in worship, so our radio broadcast will continue to be live at the new time on KSDN radio 930 AM/102.1 FM.

Following worship, there will be a time of fellowship and Sunday School at 10:15 AM.
