We're glad you're here.
We have two worship services every Sunday: a contemporary service with a praise band at 9:30am in the fellowship hall, and a traditional service with a choir at 10:45am in the sanctuary.
What is worship like?
Our worship services run for about an hour. We'll praise God with some songs or hymns, have a time of prayer, and hear a sermon from our pastor. On the first Sunday of each month, we celebrate Holy Communion. Everyone is welcome at the table! (yes, everyone!)
What is the music like?
In the contemporary service, our live praise band will lead us in several modern worship songs, such as King of My Heart and Graves into Gardens.
In the traditional service, our multi-generational choir and our pianist (and other instruments, on occasion) will lead us in a selection of hymns from The United Methodist Hymnal, The Faith We Sing, and other sources.
What should I wear?
We're pretty casual here, so feel free to dress comfortably. If you'd wear it to a family gathering, you're on the right track!
What about my kids?
We love kids! Both worship services include a children's message and a noisy offering (where we collect loose change for Pack a Sack), and Children's Church is offered during the contemporary service. Click here to learn more about Children's Church and pre-register your child.
What do you believe?
As a United Methodist church, we trace our history back to John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist movement.
John Wesley affirmed the Apostles' Creed, wrote the Articles of Religion of the Methodist Church, and emphasized the importance of scripture for Christian discipleship.
In our tradition, we believe that the living core of the Christian faith is revealed in scripture, illumined by tradition, vivified in personal experience, and confirmed by reason.

Can I receive Holy Communion?
We believe that Jesus welcomes to his table all who love him, who earnestly repent of their sin and seek to live in peace with one another. If that's you, welcome to the table!
We serve bread and grape juice (instead of wine) to be inclusive of our friends who struggle with alcoholism.
Do you collect an offering?
We take up an offering each week, but we don't expect visitors to give right away. We give generously because we have received generously! We invite you to invest in our mission and ministry by contributing financially.
Let's chat! You can send our pastor an email at email@example.com, or you can give us a call at the church office at 813-689-8385. We'll be glad to help you get plugged into what God is doing here!
