This weekly worship service at 10:am on Sundays is traditional congregational worship, which includes primarily organ and choir music, congregational hymn-singing, monthly communion on first Sundays, and of course, weekly scripture readings and sermons. Other styles of music are also used in this service sometimes: music by our handbell choirs; various classical and jazz pieces, as well as contemporary Christian music selections by instrumentalists, soloists and guest artists. Most Sundays, except on the first Sunday of each month, the children begin in worship with their families. After the Children’s Message, they move to their Church School classrooms with their teachers. On first Sundays, they begin in Church School and join our worship near the end of the service in order to share communion with the rest of the congregation.
