Groups & Ministries

Sunday School

Our Sunday School program meets for 45 minutes each Sunday morning at 9:30. There are classes for all ages and stages of life, including a clean and well-staffed nursery for children ages 3 and younger. If you are not sure into which class you might fit best, please let our pastoral staff know and we can help find the right fit for you.


The adult choir sings every Sunday in the morning worship service. They meet on Sunday evenings at 5pm for practice before the evening service at 6pm. Some of the highlights of the year are when our choir presents special musicals and cantatas for our church family and community during the Christmas or Easter seasons. You can find these scheduled on the church events calendar.
