What to Expect
We are glad you are thinking of visiting our church. There is no dress code here! If you are comfortable - we are comfortable.
We have a bright, professionally-staffed nursery for children through age 2. Your children will be lovingly cared for while you are in worship or attending one of our classes.
During the Fall, Winter, and Spring, we have classes available for all ages at 9:00am. (Visit the Adult, Youth, Children, Education pages for more details). Our Worship begins at 10:00am. Children ages 3 through grade 5 begin worship in the Sanctuary and are invited to Church School following the Time for Children. Older youth remain in worship.
Worship includes a wide variety of music, including classical organ, a chancel choir & soloists, children's choir, handbells, contemporary, and gospel music. Communion is served on the first Sunday of the Month, and each Sunday during Lent and Advent.
In the Summer brings "Summer on the Circle", featuring a more informal, abbreviated worship service, followed by classes for all ages during June and July and hands-on service projects during August. Summer on the Circle helps us explore Westmoreland’s commitments to community, learning and service. (Visit the Summer on the Circle page for more details.)
