Baptism is one of two sacraments of the Presbyterian Church (USA). Baptism functions as a sign and symbol of inclusion in God’s grace and covenant with the church. Both believers and their children are included in God’s covenant love. Baptism signifies the beginning of life in Christ, not its completion.
The resurrection is a central doctrine of the Christian faith, and shapes Christians’ attitudes and responses to death. Christians do not bear bereavement in isolation, but are sustained by the power of the spirit of the community of faith. The Church offers a ministry of love and hope to all who grieve.

Music in Christian worship is a means of prayer, proclamation, and offering. It is in response to the goodness of God which engages one’s whole self. Our church has a music program that encompasses all ages, and its purpose is to enable and enhance the congregational song. The choirs for youth and children teach music literacy, worship traditions, and teach worship leadership. Handbell choirs and instrumentalists offer their talents to enhance the congregation’s worship.
Our 8:30 and 11:00 services include musical leadership most often by choirs, organ, and piano. The 9:45 service is led by our Music Team and the service includes a wide variety worship music including hymns, global, and folk/bluegrass music.
