Sunday Worship Service

We are now on our summer schedule, with worship starting at 9:30 a.m. This will continue through September 1. The service includes congregational singing, a time for sharing joys and concerns, a children’s message, Scripture readings, a choral anthem, and a pastoral sermon. The Sacrament of Communion will be celebrated on July 14 and August 4.

On July 7, our guest speaker will be Denny Barger, director of Dreams Alive, to ARC on Sunday, July 7. Anyone interested in having a chance to talk with him and his wife Susan in an informal setting is welcome to a potluck supper gathering at Kitt Jackson's home (10 Rita Ct. In Delmar) from 5–7 p.m. on Saturday, July 6. Dreams Alive supports Christian refugees in the Middle East and builds bridges with Muslims wherever possible.

Child care is provided in the church nursery during the service for children through age 3. "Sermon Sacks" with activities for older children are available in the sanctuary.

Music ministry

The Chancel Choir sings anthems and leads congregational singing from September through mid-June. New members are welcome: no prior experience required, although it helps to have the ability to read music. Rehearsals usually are on Thursday evenings from 7 to 8:30 p.m. and on Sunday mornings from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m.

If you're interested in joining the choir, please contact the Church Office Administator (
