Rev. John M. Semmes
We love to worship God, be together as a whole church, and grow in our study of scripture through worship. Our services follow an order of worship, including a Call to Worship, Prayer of Confession, Affirmation of Faith and other traditional Presbyterian elements of worship. We hope that within this structure you find your own unique connection to God. Our ushers will hand you a bulletin as you walk in the door to help you follow along. Sit wherever you like and make yourself at home!
We offer safe and nurturing nursery care for children infant-3 years old, 8:30 am – 12:30 pm. The Nursery Rooms are located in the main lobby of the Education Building, just outside the main Sanctuary doors.
Children ages 2 through Kindergarten participate in engaging lessons to explore the meaning of our faith and the Bible for the first time. They meet in classes divided by age group, 9:30-10:30 am.
Children 1st through 5th grade get a fun-filled experience every Sunday 9:30-10:30 am, rotating through stations to get creative and learn about the Bible.
During the 11:00 am service, all children will be invited to walk to the front of the Sanctuary for a Children’s Sermon (very brief) and then ages three through Kindergarten leave worship to join Cherub Choir practice, led by our Children’s Music Director.
With a vibrant teaching team and real-world curriculum, our middle and high school students (grades 6 – 12) grow deep in their faith and build rich relationships during the Sunday School hour, 9:30-10:30.
Got an hour?
Adults can gather in small groups (Sunday School classes) for study, discussion and building relationships each Sunday from 9:30-10:30 am, in between services. We have classes for people in all stages of life and faith, exploring a variety of topics. These groups are a great place to begin and continue our journeys of faith.
Come on in!
