Our Ministries

What Happens During the Service?

  • Each Sunday service begins with a greeting from the Rev. Dr. Paul Ashby.
  • Each service begins with music to transition into a more worshipful state. We enjoy our Music Director, Jessica Choe playing the piano or the organ and think you will too.
  • Every service has a time for children. They generally go up to the front and sit on the floor with the Rev. Dr. Paul Ashby and our Director of Faith Formation for Children and Youth, Staci Schulmerich, an optional offering is taken at this time, the offering goes to “First Place” a school for homeless children.  Children are then free to attend Sunday School.
  • Most services are based on scripture from the lectionary, the scriptures appointed to be read for that particular Sunday.  The Pastor seeks to connect the scripture, music, and Sermon thematically.
  • Our time of prayer begins with an opportunity to share our Joys and Concerns with the congregation and Rev. Dr. Paul Ashby, ending with a recitation of The Lord's Prayer, which is printed in the bulletin.
  • An offering to support our church is taken every Sunday as part of the service. Occasionally there are also special offerings to which you may  or may not choose to contribute. If you choose to give , your contribution will be acknowledged and you will receive a document at the end of the quarter for your taxes.
