We are a traditional Presbyterian congregation, welcoming those families who are new to the area, folks just visiting family, or longtime residents seeking a more simple approach to worship.
We enjoy good fellowship, good friendships, and regular opportunities for sharing good food. Communion is served on the first Sunday of each month; session (our governing body) meets each month on the third Sunday; and Second Sundays find us spending time after worship in the fellowship hall.
We look forward to each liturgical season with joy and hope--glad for the opportunity to worship together and greet each new day with gladness.
Worship service begins at 11am in the sanctuary. The sacrament of holy communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month.
Sermons and featured music are videoed each Sunday and a link posted on the Gallery page of this website for easy access. In addition, the link is added to the church Facebook page.
The David Shane Sunday School is held each Sunday before the church service. All are welcome. Study guides are available onsite. See calendar for time(s). David Shane was a consistent, vibrant member of the church who taught Sunday school.
The Bippy Cook Women's Bible Study is a women's ministry that meets the third Friday of each month for study and fellowship. Yearly study begins in January and ends in December with a Christmas group meal. Bippy Cook was the first female elder to serve the congregation beginning in 1983. She firmly believed in women's studies.

The church has been blessed with two (2) talented individuals - Lila Aud, Music Director and her Mother, Phyllis. Both play the piano and Lila also plays the flute. Lila Aud, complements each Sunday's hymns to the Pastor's sermons based on the Revised Common Lectionary verses. We use the 1955 red hymnal titled "The Hymnbook" and the 1990 blue hymnal titled "The Presbyterian Hymnal" as well as the 1967 supplement "Favorite Hymns of Praise", a Tabernacle Publishing Company publication.
The Church has also been blessed with the donation of a beautiful grand piano used each Sunday.
Let Lila know if you have a favorite hymn you would like to sing on Sunday.
