What should I wear when I visit?


You will find a wide spectrum of attire at our worship services. At the 8:30 Chapel service the dress is mixed, some casual and some suits or dresses. The 8:50 contemporary service is mostly casual in jeans and slacks. At the 11:00 service some people are comfortable in suits or dresses; some are comfortable in more casual wear. Know that you will not be singled out no matter what you choose to wear. Attire on Wednesday nights and at other church functions is more relaxed.

Yes. We have childcare professionals and volunteers who teach and care for our infants and preschoolers during the 8:50 and 11 a.m. services. Childrens church is held in the main service for contemporary and tradition worship services. Afterward the short children's lesson, the children are invited to attend Sunday School. Our nursery is located on the main level near the church office.
