We worship every Sunday at 11:00 AM, as well as on Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, and Christmas Eve. The times for those services are announced ahead of time, normally 7:00 PM. We invite you to join us as you are able. The Lord’s Supper is usually celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. All who trust in God are welcome at the Lord’s Table.

Christmas celebrates the Incarnation, God with us. It begins Christmas Day and lasts twelve days.
The day of Epiphany (January 6) focuses on Jesus, God with us, as light of the world.
Ordinary Time between Epiphany and Lent is often centered on Christ’s mission to the world.

Holy Week remembers the passion of Jesus Christ, and includes Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday.
Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ, begins Easter Sunday and lasts 50 days.
