A fully appointed Quiet Room is available for parents with children who might need a stretch. In this room, a window is open to the worship space and sound is provided. A Coffee Fellowship follows the service.

On Sunday mornings, we have different styles of music in our worship. Although we do use Lutheran Liturgy in our service, it is easy to sing very user friendly. All of our hymn music for Sundays is intentionally chosen to be sing-able by the congregation, and uplifting, beautiful praise to the Lord. We incorporate a variety of hymnals in our selections – from the green LBW, to the new red ELW hymn book, the With One Voice hymnal, the Worship and Praise hymnal and others.
The Senior Adult Choir is open to anyone high school age and above. Rehearsals are held on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am in the Choir Room at the church. The Senior Choir generally sings at the 10:15am worship service. On special occasions, or church holidays, we also offer music at the 8:00am service. It is helpful if you can read music, but not required. If you love to sing, please join us!.
Our chime choir meets on Wednesday at 5:00 pm and participates in most worship services. A new chime set and dedicated volunteers provide us with a wonderful addition to our worship experience.
