Our worship service is built around Word and sacrament, with gospel-centered preaching, weekly communion, and a connection to the universal and historic church through creeds, confessions, and corporate prayers. Music is selected for theological richness, beauty, and congregational “sing-ability.” Children are welcome and included in worship from beginning to end (though nursery and Children’s Church are also provided). Our service has been described as warm, simple, liturgical yet laid back, and participatory rather than a production, with a welcoming and evangelistic attitude toward unbelievers.


We are a close-knit, caring community that serves one another sacrificially and enjoys being together. We have a heavily involved congregation (about 100 members) and a distributed leadership structure; most of our ministries are led by member-volunteers rather than staff. We favor a personal rather than programmatic approach to discipleship—community groups, Bible studies, youth group, Sunday School and Children’s Church are our current avenues for spiritual and relational growth. Our proximity to two major universities and a sizable community college allows us to become a loving church family to many college students during their time here.
