We'd love to join you on your journey 

We are a community of believers who openly embrace each other and our differences. Our destination is to love God and love others deeply, genuinely, and with commitment. All are welcomed and shown love. 

Join us on Sunday mornings for worship at 10:15 AM in our parking lot

Unfortunately, we can’t meet together in person right now

Phase 2 of our COVID-19 pandemic plan is here! 

PARKING LOT CHURCH (have a better idea for a name? let us know!!)

We will be having in person (in car) service on Sunday mornings at 10:15. You come in your car and the parking lot crew (again, name TBD) will give you a prepackaged bag with the contents for the day which have been packaged up at least 4 days before the service (bulletin, announcements, communion, etc.) and will have pew bags for the kids too (car seat bags now??) and will park you so that everyone can see. ** Get there early for a spot up front!

There is still the option to access our weekly services  (and daily devotions) on youtube! 

** If you would prefer, you may access the weekly bulletin below and bring your own communion bread and juice 


What to expect on Sunday morning
pre COVID-19

As soon as you enter The Gallery, a mixture of natural light and bright, smiling faces will greet you in a heartfelt way. 

Service starts at 10:15 AM on Sunday mornings but, with Sunday School starting at 9AM, you will see people hanging around in lots of different spaces of the church early. Then, after the service, there’s ALWAYS plenty of snacks and conversation in The Gallery.


Our worship includes a variety of blended elements such as traditional hymns and contemporary music to enjoy the best of both worlds.


Whether you prefer our traditional pews or some firm padded chairs, we have a seat for you!

Our Sanctuary is easily-adaptable to accomodate wheelchairs so that you may sit with your family. Just ask and we’ll be happy to help you!


We offer a variety of amenities for those of us that need something special!

-large screen video projection of service
-loop system for hearing aids
-large print bulletins
-pew bags for children
-alcohol-free communion designed to be a safe space for all
-gluten-free and lactose-free communion bread

“Let the little children come to me…”
Matthew 19:14

Children of all ages are encouraged to be themselves here at First United. 

The following programs aren’t available in our current worship format. They will be back soon!


Every Sunday at 9 AM, we have a unique learning experience for our children that varies from week-to-week including singing, creative activities, STEM activities and interactive lessons. Each lesson is taught by a volunteer who loves to share Jesus with our children. 


After the Children’s Message during our worship, the children in the church are invited to come to Children’s Church where they participate in their own worship together. 

Note: There is no Children’s Church on the first Sunday of the month and on holidays.


During worship, our nursery is staffed with two adults that lead the children in a time of play, crafts and lessons. Children from 6 weeks until Kindergarten are welcome to come and play!


Kid’s Club is our K-5 weekly enrichment where kids get a chance to further develop their understanding of the Bible and 

During 1UP on Tuesday’s, Kid’s Club meets in the Orange Room after dinner.

Tuesday nights 6:00-7:30 PM
Pre COVID-19 Programming


Every Tuesday night, we gather at the church and share a meal together before breaking off into various small groups. It is a really special time that allows everyone to become closer together while spending more time with Jesus. 


We begin our small groups by sharing a meal together. Members sign up to provide meal for everyone. 


Middle and high schoolers break off after dinner and spend the evening in the youth room discussing life and Jesus. We also play a variety of games.  

Kid’s Club

Kids preschool aged through 5th grade play games, sing songs and enjoy interactive bible curriculum.

Adult Small Group

The adults gather near the fireplace and work through various texts (novels, books and books of the bible). 

6th-12th grade student ministry 


265West is our youth ministry that strives to create solid, positive connections between young people while bringing them closer to Jesus. 

265West meets every Tuesday night (and every other night in the summer) during 1UP from 6-7:30 for dinner and a bible study. 

We also gather together about twice a month during the school year and hang out, play games and just enjoy each other’s company.
