The Sanctuary – 9:30am

Join us for a sacred gathering with traditional liturgy, a thoughtful message, and resounding organ. Congregational music is chosen from The United Methodist Hymnal along with many other sources and most of it is led by a large pipe organ and choir. The themes of this service and its music and preaching is usually coordinated with the traditional seasons of the church year as observed by many Christian denominations. The liturgy lasts about 45 minutes and includes Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month. The pastors and choir wear vestments, and the overall feeling of the service is one of dignity and reverence without being stiff. Assistive listening devices are available from the ushers.
