Sunday Worship 10:00 a.m. inside or 88.7FM in your car.
Our church is blessed with a vibrant music program. Each of the groups that participate in worship adds an element of praise and adoration for our Lord that the spoken word alone cannot accomplish. Everyone is welcome to join us!

Calling All Those Who Love to Make Music: If you love to make music, why are you procrastinating in joining a group that is calling your name? There is NO form to sign that says you have to attend every Sunday or every rehearsal. We are just happy that one more voice or ringer is lifting beautiful music to the Lord. Vocal Choir rehearsals are immediately following worship on Sunday mornings in the Choir Room.
Joyful Bells rehearsal is Thursday evening beginning at 5:00 p.m. This is a great opportunity to learn about playing handbells. You don't have to read music (but that is an added plus if you do.) We will teach you everything you need to know to play handbells. It is open to Grade 7 and up!! Come check us out.
Questions? Please contact our Music Director, Bonnie Champion.
The office of a deacon is one of sympathy, witness and service after the example of Jesus Christ. The deacons minister to those that are in need, to the sick, to those that need a friend and to anyone in distress from within or outside our faith community. They assist with the preparations and needs for worship and communion, and pray for the concerns of the church and the people.
The Deacons oversee a number of ministries:
Women's Fellowship invites women of all ages to join us. Circles meet regularly for Bible study and social time.
We have Circles that meet at each time of the day. Choose one that's convenient for you and attend.
Morning - 10:00 a.m. 2nd Thursday of the month in the church Parlor.
Afternoon - 12:00 p.m. 2nd Thursday of the month in the Chapel
Evening - 7:00 p.m. 2nd Wednesday of the month, in a member's home.
We would like to invite all women to be involved in a circle. Contact the Church Office at (814) 226-8145 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Encouraging our students as they develop their relationships to Jesus, to each other, and to the church is the focus of our learning to worship, grow, and serve.
Active learning, songs, and lesson mark Sunday School for our young disciples. As do mission projects for near and far: serving as acolytes, making decorations for church events, baking cookies for shut-ins and soldiers, and saving coins for mission projects.
Teens can spread their wings through opportunities that include becoming active, serving members of the church; helping with VBS, the Food Bag Distributions, and ushering. Group meetings, trips, and other activities as suggested by the students are also a part of building up our relationships within the body of Christ
Our library has something for everyone. Please stop in and browse on Sunday mornings or during church office hours (9-3 Mon-Fri). The Library is located behind the Sanctuary, near the main doors. Books and videos are available to borrow by self check-out.
Donations for books purchased in memory of or in honor of a loved one are gratefully accepted. A specific title may be requested or our librarian can choose one. Your donation will be acknowledged on the inside cover of the book. Donations of appropriate, used books are also welcomed.
As imperfect people struggling to follow a perfect Lord, we know that we don’t get it right a lot of the time. If we said that things were always wonderful in our church, we wouldn’t be telling the whole truth. But the Truth is that for every time we mess up, God has a word of forgiveness. Because new mercies find us every morning, we are freed to practice our Christian faith (and it takes a lot of practice). These are some of the ministries that bring to life our mission statement: We come together to worship, grow and serve as disciples of Christ. Using our God-given gifts and talents is a fulfilling form of worship and an important way of connecting with our community of faith. Whether our gifts are large or small, they are valuable in service to God
