The 9:00am New Day Contemporary worship service is more casual and features a band and piano music. The 11:00am Traditional worship service includes organ music and the adult choir. Both services have a Children's Time and a chance for 3-year-olds through 1st graders to attend a Kaleidoscope Worship Education class after the Children's Time. The Sacrament of Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of each month.
