Getting Involved

Become a part of God's mission to save the world. Invite others to our faith in Jesus, grow as a disciple and serve the community in Christ's name.



Worship Ministry

Worship is basic to our Christian life. We come to worship to offer our love to God.

In the midst of worship, God speaks to us through music, prayer, Scripture, the preached word

and the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion. Help the pastor lead worship by reading Scripture

and other readings.  Help prepare the sanctuary for Sunday worship and other special services throughout the year.

Music Ministry

Integral to worship our music ministry includes singing in the choir with opportunities for solos,

instrumentals and small ensembles as well. Our Sunday School Children’s Choir practices weekly during

Sunday school and sings during worship as well.
