We have two morning worship services that are identical. Whether you come for the early service at 8:30 AM or the late service at 11:00 AM, you will sing the same music and hear the same preaching. We strive for a welcoming, intergenerational worship service each week in which believers of all ages and backgrounds will be edified as they join in God’s praise!

Most weeks, our choir leads worship along with piano, organ, and worship band. We also have a bluegrass band, a youth worship band, and an orchestra that each lead worship a couple times a year. We seek to utilize all the talents of our congregation for God’s glory in worship. If you have a musical or artistic talent, we want to give you the opportunity to use it for Jesus Christ.

Our Worship Priorities: Singing, Saturating with Scripture, and Celebrating the Gospel

Singing: Colossians 3:16 says, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” We employ a variety of musical styles, including traditional hymns, southern gospel, contemporary praise and worship, modern hymns, and even newly composed songs written just for our congregation. All the songs we select, no matter what style, are singable. That’s because the most important part of the worship music is the sound of the congregation singing.

Saturating with Scripture: The first part of Colossians 3:16 says, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.” We read scripture aloud every time we come together. We try to be careful about picking music that is scripturally sound and scripturally deep. Whether Pastor Bart Barber or one of our other pastors is preaching, he will preach an expository sermon from God’s word.

Celebrating the Gospel: Romans 1:16 says, “I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.” From the songs we sing to the structure of the worship service, we celebrate the gospel of Jesus Christ every Sunday. God is holy, yet merciful. Even while we were still sinners, God demonstrated his love for us by sending his son Jesus to die for us!

Sunday Evening Worship

On most Sundays, the congregation gathers at the end of our day's activities for a final worship gathering. Check the calendar for the time each Sunday. The evening worship service generally features congregational singing and a sermon, although the evening services are also more flexible, sometimes involving testimony and other worship elements.

Sunday evenings are also when we hold our business meetings—a time when God's people gather to seek God's will in our decision-making. After our business meetings, we generally enjoy food and fellowship with one another.
