Music Ministries

We believe in celebrating what God has done through music. We are extremely blessed by an adult chancel choir, two youth handbell choirs, assorted soloists and instrumentalists, a praise team, and an exceptionally gifted organist who share their gifts of music with us.

Prayer Ministry

We have an active prayer ministry, including a telephone prayer chain for quick responses to urgent, dated needs or emergencies for our congregation and their families. Requests come during the day and early evening hours. We also have people who pray as the Lord leads them during the Sunday morning services for pastors, worship leaders, the choir, and the congregation.


Open on Sunday mornings, our church library has a fine collection of books and videos for children through adults.


Missions is one of our priorities, and we support 16 missionaries around the world. At various times during the year, missionaries are invited to share the ways in which God is working through them during our Sunday services and at other meetings.
