Our style of worship blends the best of contemporary and traditional styles, mixing together contemporary choruses as well as favorite old hymns. Sermons weave biblical stories with real-life experiences, meeting God at this intersection of the ancient and modern worlds.
Worship Reflections (aka sermons) are designed to weave together the biblical stories of the past with our current lives of today. Weaving research on the historical setting of the biblical text and real life stories of today (mixed with a dash of humor) helps keep most listeners awake each week. See print or listen to audio samples. We used the Narrative Lectionary as a guide for planning, which helps us hear the biblical story from beginning to end each year using a four-year cycle.

Our adult class studies various books of the Bible, from Revelation and the Gospels to Paul's letters and the Hebrew scriptures. Pastor Doug uses a conversational style of teaching, offering tidbits of history and theology while encouraging conversation, mixed with a bit of humor.
Our children learn in a one-room style setting using the Bible curriculum Deep Blue. Older children have occasionally participated in the adult group, offering their fresh perspectives to adults.
Every other month we enjoy a carry-in meal together after worship, with unique themes adding a bit of fun.
