Our worship services take place every Sunday at 10:30 AM. In the event of inclement weather, we advertise the cancellation of services on WFMZ TV-69. The notice of cancellation will be listed online as well as scrolled at the bottom of the television screen.
For our public worship services, the English Standard Version is the translation of the Bible most frequently read from. Large print editions of that version are provided in the pews for everyone to follow along. Many of our adults use the New International Version in the adult Bible study classes, but any other reputable translation is perfectly acceptable.
Providing modern standards of accessibility has been a challenge with a building constructed in 1898. There are no steps required to enter the church building on either the main or basement level. However, we do not have handicapped bathrooms, nor do we have restrooms on the main floor of the church.
Communion is celebrated every other month on dates announced in the bulletin. Our communion table is open to all who have accepted Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and who are living in fellowship with him. If you have the inner witness of God’s Spirit that you belong to Christ, we invite you to join us in the sacrament of Holy Communion. Babies and young children are also welcome to come to the table and a special prayer will be offered for each one. Communion is celebrated at the communion rail up front, but can also be given to those with mobility issues in the pew. See the pastor for help in this regard.
