Worship & Music
Worship is central to our life together.  On Sundays at 10:45am we offer our lives in prayer and praise to Almighty God.  Music is important in the life of the church. Our musicians, choir, and choir director serve to provide a wide range of music from classical to contemporary.


Faith Formation

From Pastor Matt's Wednesday Noon Bible Study, to our youth class on Sunday, to the Nursery, to adult Sunday School classes, we strive to equip our minds with God's Word in all we do.


Mission & Service
Our mission dollars support local, national, and international endeavors such as Dwight Mission Camp and Conference Center, Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, Goodland Presbyterian Home, Christian's Concerned, PCUSA mission co-workers around the world, and so many others.  There are opportunities for service throughout the year.  Check the church newsletter Faith @ Work for more detail.
