Worship With Us

Morning Worship, 10:30 AM, in the Sanctuary or Charter Chapel 

Dr. Brian Lee will continue the sermon series titled "Church As It Was Meant to Be" with his message from Acts 1:8, giving particular attention to the mission that Christ gave the church, a mission that is still our mission today.


Musical offerings will include Sara Bryan's organ prelude presentation,"Here I Am to Worship" and the Sanctuary Choir's presentation of John Rutter's "For the Beauty of the Earth." Sundra LeCroy will sing "I Can Hear Your Voice Insisting, Calling," written by Hiram Rollo, as offertory music.


FOURS will be guided to Preschool Worship in Room 127. Older children will worship with their families in the Sanctuary during the summer months.

Sabbath Week

Note from Brian Lee:

Over the time that I have been with you, I have spoken more than once about the importance of taking time for Sabbath so that our bodies can rest and our souls can be enriched. I hope that you are taking advantage of this God-given blessing for your own personal benefit. With that in mind, we will be having a church-wide Sabbath week, August 3-8.  During this time, there will be no evening church activities so that you can spend time with your family and slow down the pace of your life. Take advantage of this opportunity to be replenishing in body and soul as we anticipate the beginning of school and a busy season at church.
