A PLACE TO CELEBRATE God's creation
We are called to be part of God's new creation, and to model and display that creation, in music and family life, in restorative justice and poetry, in holiness and service to the poor, in societal engagement and the visual arts.

If you’ve never attended a Christian worship service or spiritual formation class, you likely have two questions:what should I expect? and, what will be expected of me?
You can expect a worship service that reflects what the Church has believed and practiced for thousands of years, but applied in a way that is relevant to our life and times. The Bible teaches that God is real and that we can meet him and get to know his personality and character through worship. While God is invisible, he is truly present in the songs we sing, his heart and mind are disclosed in the Scriptures we read, and he is active in the lives of the people around us. Christians participate in these activities with the expectation that God will make himself known in our hearts, minds and souls. If you are not yet a Christian, please know that you are invited to participate in whatever you can honestly affirm. No one expects you to sing about things you don’t believe, nor will you be forced to. If you just want to watch and listen, feel free—you are more than welcome.
Our First Hour spiritual formation classes, which meet from September through mid-June, are places to further discover the Christian faith. Guided by caring teachers, who respect where you are in your journey, we encourage open and candid dialogue about your questions. Toddlers and elementary school children's classes work through the big story of the Bible emphasizing the way it points to the person and work of Jesus at every turn, while Junior High classes build on God's unfolding plan of salvation and how Jesus fulfills that plan in the daily reality of our lives as exactly the kind of Savior we need. The Senior High class is topical and applies discipleship questions to worldview issues. Recent adult classes have studied Romans 1-7, "Work to the Glory of God," "The Hospitality of Jesus," the Book of Psalms, "The Mission of God's People," "Resolving Everyday Conflicts," the Book of Deuteronomy, "Christianity and the Modern World," and more.
