What is a typical worship service like?
Pre-Covid Gathering Sunday worship services were previously held at Hawthorne Academy in their beautiful auditorium. Our services are laid back, casual, and filled with peace and joy. During our services we pray, worship through music, learn from biblical teaching, and partake in the Lord's Supper every Sunday. Dress is casual and comfortable.
Currently we gather online and worship through our uniquely produced YouTube offerings. Some folks view our online service on Saturdays and other on Sundays, either in microGatherings or on their own. If you would like to attend an online service where you can chat and connect with others we offer a pre-scheduled service on our Home Page at 10:30am on Sundays.

Can visitors take communion?
If you are a follower and disciple of Jesus Christ then we are happy to have you join us in the Lord's Supper. If you have not made a decision to put your faith in Jesus yet, we ask that you abstain from communion as it is a sacred act. However, we are always happy to have a conversation about communion and it's role in our faith.

Our time of worship is spirit led and ranges from ancient hymns to contemporary arrangements. We sing songs that glorify God, welcome the Holy Spirit, and uplift the name of Jesus.
