SUNDAY SERVICE OF WORSHIP
We gather together for corporate worship of our triune God on the Lord's Day. Our
service features preaching from the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, private
and corporate prayer, and theologically sound music reflecting covenantal diversity
across generations. We pursue worship that is God-directed, Christ-centered and
Spirit-enabled. The Lord's Supper is ordinarily observed the first Sunday of each
