We believe that there is nothing more important than gathering around God's Word to receive God's gifts of forgiveness, life and salvation. That's what happens in worship. God showers His gifts upon us and we respond by praising His name in many and various ways. During these very difficult times it is even more important to be gathered in worship around God's Word. Because we can't do that in person we are gathering together in a virtual worship space! We are using a video conference service that allows each of us to connect in to a virtual worship space. You will see and hear the Pastor. You will be able to hear various members of the body of Christ as they read God's Word throughout the service and together we will all lift up our joyous Amen!
Join us Sunday morning at 10:30 or Wednesday evening at 7.
This page will be the place to go to learn more about the upcoming service and get everything you need. We encourage you to download and print the bulletin and prayer sheet before the service begins.

A few points of online worship etiquette. Your camera will be disabled when you join the service but your microphone will be enabled. Recognize that everyone can hear you. We will mute your microphone during the sermon so that your dog doesn't inadvertently offer his Amen and during the hymns so that nobody will hear you singing! But recognize that you can mute and unmute your own microphone.
You will be asked to type in your id. We'd appreciate it if you would put in the names of everyone who is watching so we can keep track of who we haven't seen in a while. You can react to what you're hearing by offering a thumbs up or clap your hands. Although you can chat with other participants in the chat room we discourage this because we want you focused on God's Word!
If you have never used a Zoom conference before you should click on the link about 15 minutes early so that your computer can get the application installed.
We can't wait to see you in our virtual worship space as we gather together around God's Word!
