8:30 AM Traditional Worship

Our traditional worship follows a classic pattern of Christian worship, from the Call to Worship and Opening Prayer through the reading of Scripture, the Lord’s Prayer, Affirmation of Faith and Final Blessing (Benediction). All this is tied together by the singing of traditional hymns (like, Amazing Grace and Be Thou My Vision) accompanied by the pipe organ. You’ll hear the Chancel Choir sing as well.


10:30 AM Contemporary Worship

We enthusiastically sing songs to inspire people to enthusiastically praise the Lord by singing along! Our Praise Team sing a variety of familiar praise songs along with classic & current hit songs that carry a universally positive message. Praise Team leaders; Dan & Karla Oleson Tritle also bring their own songs (some are Dove & Grammy eligibly nominated) to add to the team’s diverse song list

Praise Team

Some things to remember:
Dress casually for both services…no ties needed.
Words to the songs and readings are projected on screens so you can follow along.
Children are always welcome. We have a nursery during the services if you need it.
