Sundays

Morning Worship Service             

During the school year, Sunday morning worship service begins at 11:00 a.m. and typically wraps up close to 12:00 pm (or shortly thereafter).

Services consist of a time of music, reading from God’s Word, prayer, and worship followed by a sermon delivered by the Pastor.

NOTE:  Sermons are available on our YouTube channel.

Corporate worship is an important time where we can come together as God’s family and learn from His living Word and be encouraged by one another, in our walk with God. The Holy Bible is the authoritative source for all our spiritual learning and discernment.

Music is often accompanied by piano or organ, while lyrics and responsive readings are found in the hymnals provided.  A variety of soloists and groups also often provide special music.

Sunday School (Sept. through June, except the last Sunday of the month) 

Sunday school for adults starts at 10:00 a.m. and is a rich time for learning from God’s Word.  We encourage each and every one to attend as we discover God’s truths with real-world application for our daily lives.  We will be doing a Bible survey, taught by Gord Braid.

Sunday School Breakfast:  the last Sunday of every month (Sept. – June, except May and June) at 9:30 a.m. There is no breakfast in May due to Anniversary Sunday, and it is often held the third Sunday in June.  (Check the calendar for specifics.)  It is a warm time of fellowship.  This is a pot blessing, but if you’re new, please just show up!  There will be lots of food!
