What to expect

We are an inter-generational community with all ages represented. We especially have a large number of young adults and young children. People’s attire ranges from jeans to ties and dresses. We typically have about 130 people in worship. You can expect a warm welcome––along with some coffee and donuts.

Our community practices Word and Table worship each Sunday. We value thoughtful preaching from the Bible and weekly communion. We love and use many of the church’s historic liturgies. Our music is usually led by a guitar, though neither “contemporary” nor “traditional” is a great way to describe our services. For more specifics about our worship, see “What kind of worship service do you have?

For children

We have lots of children, and we encourage them to worship with us. You’ll see that a number of people have their children in worship for the whole service. We also have a nursery and pre-K children’s ministry that run for the duration of our worship services.

Children in grades K-3 join us for the beginning of worship, then leave midway through for a special Kids’ Worship time and return for communion.

Please ask one of our greeters or leaders, and they’ll be happy to show you where the children’s area is located. We have a great nursery and children’s ministry staff who will be happy to take care of them.

Sermons

Sacrifice, Victor
A series on the dark mystery of the cross: Why it happened, what it means

For 6 weeks, we consider the terrible paradox of the Christian faith: Rescue, victory, and healing because of a death––a notorious public death. If you’ve ever been confused or distressed by the cross, join us for a deep and thoughtful consideration of why it happened and what it means. No clichés, no easy answers.

“There was some kind of victory that took place, some kind of power shift in the universe, some kind of ransom paid, some kind of healing initiated, some ultimate kind of love displayed, some kind of dramatic rescue effected. Of course, the terrible paradox of the Christian faith is that this rescue, this victory, this healing happened because of a death––a notorious public execution. This is the dark mystery of the Atonement.”
