Q: What's a Word of Life service like?
A: Our Sunday (10:30 AM) service is a composition of contemporary praise and worship music, some of your favorite hymns, and Bible-based preaching by Pastor Larry!  We pray, read scripture, and lift up the name of God as a body of believers.


Q: What about my little ones?
A:  We offer nursery and pre-K care during Sunday School (9:30 AM). Our Sunday morning worship service begins with everyone (except the nursery babies) in the sanctuary, all ages worshipping together.  On the first Sunday of each month, the little wigglers stay with the adults for the entire service.  All other Sundays find the children being dismissed for Children’s Church (Pre-K through 5th grade) prior to Pastor Larry bringing the message.


Q: Are my kids safe?
A: The Church of the Nazarene has adopted a zero tolerance policy for sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior with minors. All workers, leaders, and pastoral staff are to be above reproach in their conduct and to act in the best interest of others. This requires not only that they themselves refrain from engaging in any abusive or suspicious behavior involving minors; they are also required to report without delay to the proper authorities anyone seen engaging in such behavior. All Word of Life teachers have passed a background check and have also attended mandatory MinistrySafe training.


Q: What's the dress code?
A: Come as you are!  If jeans or shorts are your thing, we invite you to wear them.


Q: How can I get more involved?
A: Word of Life is all about community…building relationships with God, each other, and the rest of the world. Check out our online CALENDAR for more details.
