Holy Communion is celebrated each Sunday.
    There is an expanded children’s time after the children’s sermon when the children leave the 
        worship service for some edifying activity.  The activities are planned for children from age 4 
        through Grade 5.  Younger children are welcome with an adult supervisor.

    The children will return to worship in time for Holy Communion.

Saturday at 5:30 pm – Worship in the lounge.
    Our regular 5:30 pm worship time continues in the summer.
    Four different worship teams lead the worship on a rotating basis.
    Holy Communion is celebrated each week.

During the summer schedule, it has been routine to offer a children's time during the 9:30 service. The children will attend a children's sermon with the pastor, then proceed with a member of the youth group or adult to work on a project during the pastor's meditation. The children then return to the congregation prior to communion. The Christian Education committee is looking for interested individuals to help lead the children in the project during this 'children's time'. There is a sign up sheet on the bulletin board across from Pastor Bob’s office.
