Worship is the center of our life together.
Adult Sunday School & Bible Studies 9:00 am (September through May)
Worship 10:30 am
Children’s Sunday School 10:30 am
This faith community worships each Sunday at 10:30 am. Adult classes gather at 9:00 am. Sunday School for children ages 3-12 is held during worship in the lower level. Children may remain in worship or be excused to Sunday School following a special message from Pastor Susan. Parents or guardians collect them up following worship and are invited to a time of conversation and coffee (and snacks, juice, tea, and more) in the fellowship hall on the east end of the building. Infants and those who need extra wiggle room are welcome in the Comfort Room just outside the sanctuary. The service may be heard while little ones have freedom to play or nap.
Two Adult studies are scheduled for Fall 2016. Look for details here.

Ushers in worship
Helpful people wanted!
Ushers welcome others into the sanctuary, provide bulletins, large print bulletins, hearing assist devices, and assist with taking the morning offering. Ushers are knowledgeable about the building, where to find things and people, and are great at answering questions. Ushers love to smile! Individuals are scheduled on teams which serve for a month at at time, twice a year (usually six months apart).
Contact the Usher Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
Lay Readers in Worship
Lay Readers provide leadership during worship, assisting in guiding the congregation through the order of worship, inviting and welcoming, reading scripture, offering prayers, assisting with baptisms, serving Holy Communion, and more. Training is ongoing. Interested persons may contact our Lay Reader Coordinator here.
Are you always smiling? Ready to make others feel welcome?
Greeters smile, too! And they welcome everyone at the east and north doors. Like Ushers, Greeters know how to answer your questions and can help you find your way around the building. Greeters are the first ones here and remain at the entrances until 10 minutes after the service has started.
East Entrance Greeters are scheduled by Janine Heavin. You may connect with Janine here.
North/Handicap Accessible Entrance greeters are scheduled by the United Methodist Women (contact)
Office Volunteers help people access the building once worship has begun. They are responsible for monitoring the security cameras and answering the telephone. These volunteers are also knowledgeable about the building and programs and use the calendar and other resources to answer questions. Office Volunteers are able to listen to the service.
Office volunteers are coordinated through a sign up sheet in the Fellowship Hall. Volunteers must arrange for a 15-minute training session with the Pastor prior to volunteering. To volunteer, contact the Pastor here.
