We invite those who have confessed their faith in Christ in a Bible-believing church, and are not under discipline, to partake of the Lord’s Supper with us. The communion tray contains both wine (the inner rings) and grape juice (the outer ring).
We welcome children in our worship services. The nursery room is available for pre-school children if needed. Children’s bulletins are available for your child to use during the service, if you wish.
