What is a Sunday Morning like?
Communion is available to all believers in Christ. Our tradition is to eat the bread and to take the cup as it is passed. As a guest, you are not expected to make an offering. Offerings are made by out members as part of their commitment to God and the church.
How do you do Communion and Offering?
Many members participate in a Bible School class at 9:00AM and then worship at 10:15AM.

In addition to topical Bible classes, there are classes geared to different age groups such as middle school students, young adults, and mature adults.
