Worship and Fellowship

Fall 2022 Worship Schedule

We have one Sunday morning service available at 9:00 AM that features Holy Communion and a livestream. 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.

This change in worship schedule is currently temporary; it will continue through the annual meeting at the end of January 2023 when the congregation will vote to continue with one service or end the change.
