Join us on Easter Morning

Join us for Easter Morning worship at 10:00AM, March 31st

On Easter morning, we’ll celebrate Christ’s resurrection. You’ll enter into a dark sanctuary, just as the women went to the tomb at sunrise. During our first hymn, the colors, decorations, and light will enter our sanctuary as we discovery together the joy of Christ’s resurrection. The morning will include special music and the celebration of Eucharist.

Ask This Young Pastor

Ask the Pastor your questionsHave you ever sat in church and thought, “The pastor never answers the questions that are really bothering me.”  Starting the second Sunday in the New Year, Pastor Nick will field a different theological question from the congregation each Sunday morning in the sermon.  Think up your best, most difficult, and most interesting questions about God, Jesus, the Bible, or theology.  You can send an email to to reach our pastor.
