Sundays at 9:00 a.m.
(Father's Day through Labor Day weekend)

Please join us for Garden Worship Service on Sundays from Father’s Day through Labor Day weekend.  The service is shorter and more interactive than the 10:30 AM sanctuary service and held in our beautiful Memorial Garden.

Sunday Sanctuary Worship


Sundays at 10:30 a.m.

As a more traditional form of worship, this service includes hymns sung with our organ and piano, special music from the choir, soloists and instrumentalists, preaching and prayer.

  • Children in Pre-Kindergarten-4th grade are dismissed to their Sunday School classes after the opening of worship.
  • Child care, for ages 0-4, is provided during the entire Sunday morning schedule.
  • Holy Communion is served on the first Sunday of each month. 
  • Coffee hour after worship and monthly brunches in Asbury Hall are a great way to meet others.

Thank God it’s Thursday (TGiT)
