Worship

Our congregation gathers together to worship the Triune God, our Maker, King, and Savior, every Sunday morning at 10:30. We seek to worship God with reverence and joy, through Christ our Lord, in the power of his Spirit, and in accordance with his Scriptures.

We seek to honor God by worshipping according to the pattern of the Bible. To read more about our philosophy of worship, see our Beliefs. Our worship follows a traditional, liturgical style. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper weekly. ¬†You can find our latest Order of Worship at our EPCWorship blog.

Meditating on the Scriptures Together

Galatians 4:4

But when the fullness of time had come,

God sent forth his Son,

born of woman,

born under the law, …

Luke 1:57-80

The Birth of John the Baptist

[57] Now the time came for Elizabeth to give birth, and she bore a son.... [66] and all who heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, “What then will this child be?” For the hand of the Lord was with him.

Zechariah's Prophecy

[67] And his father Zechariah was filled with the Holy Spirit and prophesied, saying,

[68] “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel,
for he has visited and redeemed his people
... [79] to give light to those who sit in darkness
and in the shadow of death,
to guide our feet into the way of peace.”


[80] And the child grew and became strong in spirit, and he was in the wilderness until the day of his public appearance to Israel.
