- Do you take communion? What about offering? We take communion each week. Communion will be passed around to you in the pews. We will eat the bread as it is passed, but hold onto the cup to drink together. Feel free to take part in communion. The table is for EVERYONE. We value generosity and collect offering each week. You are welcome to place an offering in the plate but if you are a guest do not feel obligated to do so.
Are you traditional or contemporary? You can find a wide range of music in our service both praise and hymns, sometimes even bluegrass, jazz or camp songs. We value making worship engaging for a wide range of people. We believe that being present over perfection is more important. Coming to church to worship God is joyful and should also be fun.

During this time your children will learn the stories of the Bible and the elements of worship. (maybe link a video of one of the stories?)For 4 th and 5 th grade we offer Connect from Sparkhouse.

just fine! We love the sounds of children in our church.For 6 th -12 th grade, we offer a monthly service in the youth room. Ask for our youth minister, Chad. He will be glad to show your child around and introduce them to other youth members in the church.
