  • 10:45 a.m. Bible study for all ages

Questions you might have:

What Sundays will follow the summer schedule?
August 4, 11, 18, 25 and September 1
ONE Sunday, September 8, will also have one service, but we will return to 9:45 Bible study and 11:00 a.m. worship.

What is the Gathering at 8:45 a.m. about?
This is an informal time of fellowship in the Courtyard prior to the worship service. Coffee, juice and light refreshments will be available. If the weather is not conducive to gathering outdoors, the fellowship time takes place in Flamming Hall.

Why have a different schedule in summer with only one worship followed by Sunday School?
Summer is a tremendously transient time for many in our congregation. Because so many people travel, worship attendance is lower than most periods of the year. By having one service at 9:30 a.m., we have the opportunity to be together as one worshipping body. We may meet new people, hear the same sermon together, experience strong congregational singing, and enjoy the vitality that measured changes can often bring. An earlier worship time followed by Sunday School at 10:45 a.m. provides flexibility and options for everyone, especially young families.

Will the service be broadcast on TV on Sundays at 11:00 a.m.?
Yes, services will continue to be broadcast at 11:00 a.m. on Sundays on Channel 8,
on a one week-delayed basis.
Will the Church Choir sing in the summer services?
Yes, the Church Choir is normally divided between the 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. services. The whole choir will sing as part of the 9:30 a.m. service. The choir will gather at 9:10 a.m. in the choir room for service preparations.

Will we stream the service on the internet?
Yes, the 9:30 a.m. service will be streamed on our website and on Facebook Live.

Will Communion be served on August 4 and September 1?

Is this move to one service permanent?

Will all Sunday School classes meet from 10:45 - 11:45 a.m.?
Yes, preschool, children, students and adults will meet in their regular classrooms from 10:45 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. Adults will have an additional Bible study option in Flamming Hall led by Dr. Scott Spencer, Professor of New Testament, Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond. This option will be open to all adult classes as a means for providing their teachers a sabbatical from every Sunday preparation.
