What To Expect

Our 9:00 am service, worship is led by our praise band with modern worship music, devotions and prayers. Our worship service in the Taft Christian Life Center and has a more casual feel or "come-as-you-are" environment.  The service lasts about an hour with a 10-15 minute sermon and time for personal interaction, scripture, prayer and singing. Children may get an activity bag to enjoy during the service, ask anyone in the back of the service if you do not see one at the entrance. Feel free to sip your coffee and enjoy the service as you sit at a table or in the chairs!

Our 11:00 am traditional service, worship is led by our choir and organist. Our liturgical worship service held in the Sanctuary is generally an hour in length with hymns, prayers, collects, anthems, and a sermon that generally lasts about 10-15 minutes. Dress is traditional "church" dress, though you can certainly come as you are. Children may get an activity bag to enjoy during the service, please ask an usher if you do not see them in the back of the Sanctuary. And feel free to enjoy the rocking chairs before, during or after service!
