Communion We believe in and practice Open Communion, so all are welcome to partake of the communion bread and grape juice (we are non-alcoholic) whether or not you're a United Methodist or a member of this church. Children are also welcome to participate, at the discretion of their parent or guardian.
Sunday School We offer classes for all ages, pre-K through adult, from 10:30-11:30 AM. You're welcome to join a class anytime, no prior Bible knowledge or other prerequisites are necessary. Ask an usher or the greeter at the Welcome Center to direct you.
Coffee & Fellowship An informal time of fellowship and refreshment is held every Sunday morning between the two services (approximately10:00-10:30am) in the Gathering Area just outside the sanctuary doors. It's a great time to connect with the pastors and other worship attendees. On the first Sunday of each month (except for June, July, and August) there is a full hot breakfast for all to enjoy—free of charge—in the North Fellowship Hall from 8:00-10:30 AM.
