Live Stream of 11 AM Worship

Not ready to return to in-person worship but curious what it's like? We are now live-streaming the 11 AM Traditional Service in the virtual Gathering Space. The Gathering Space is an online space where you can view the service and chat live with others.


Online Worship

This has been our main form of worship since March 2020 and it's not going anywhere! You'll be able to view the pre-recorded online worship service every Sunday on YouTube or Facebook.
