Worship Services are held at 10:30 AM September - June (9:30 AM in July and August) on Sunday mornings in our Sanctuary. Our Adult Education Classes and Sunday School takes place at 9 o'clock (September thru May only). Special Holy Day services are held in our Rev. William F. Foster Memorial Chapel as needed.
