Sunday Night Live Service

Sunday Night Live is what we call the worship service in Fellowship Hall at 7:00 p.m. on the third Sunday of each month. The atmosphere is informal and lively as we engage with the Lord through the Word, through Communion, and through prayer. Music is provided by our youth band.




Seeking, sharing, and showing God's love is a grand vision that takes form in how we live our everyday lives as God's people in the everyday world.  We don't do it perfectly, but we have the help of the Spirit of Christ working through one another and we welcome you to be part of the adventure.
