Periodic Pondering


POLKA WORSHIP SERVICE AUG 25 With an oom-pah-pah and some terrific musical accompaniment, including a professional accordionist, we will liven up some old hymns next week, Sunday August 25th at the 8:30 & 10:00 AM worship services, singing in the style of happy folk music that inspired polka dancing. No matter the music style, however, the Gospel good news is always proclaimed in our worship.       

FALL WORSHIP TIMES Starting on Sept. 8, we will begin offering worship at three different times, two of which are a little earlier than last school year: 8:00 (traditional style), 9:00 (blended worship style) and 10:30 AM (contemporary). Note that we will offer a midweek worship that connects with our Christos and Confirmation student’s schedules but is open to all. That will be a half-hour worship service at 6:00 PM beginning October 2nd.
