Visitor Information . . .

Visitors are always welcome. As you enter our sanctuary (dress is casual) you will be greeted by one of our members wearing a name tag. They will provide you with a weekly bulletin that will guide you through the service. Information packets are also available for visitors.

Our services will typically include:

  • Greetings, announcements and any cares and concerns.
  • Music: The service includes inspirational music from our bell choir, chancel choir, piano and organ duets, singing of hymns, and occasional special musical presentations.  
  • Reading of the Word by Lay Members.  
  • A children's message (that usually relates to the adults as well).  
  • A heart-felt message from Pastor Dan Vellinga that applies to our daily lives.  
  • A time for meditation and prayer.

The Sacrament of Holy Communion is offered monthly (see our calendar of events). Everyone is invited to take part in Communion.

Following the service, join us for fellowship, coffee and cookies in Fellowship Hall on the lower level.
