Sunday Morning Schedule

For the past several months we have maintained a Sunday morning schedule of Sunday School at 9:00 a.m. followed by one worship service at 10:30 a.m. Following a number of suggestions and discussions, your pastor, along with the deacon body believe it is in the best interest of the church to maintain our current schedule for an indefinite amount of time. We do believe at some point it will be necessary to return to two Sunday Schools and two worship services; however, at this time we feel the church will be best served to maintain our current schedule.

Children’s worship will resume this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. in the Fuzion Theatre.
