choruses. Over the course of a month, you can expect to hear a mix of
congregational singing, choir, ensembles, trios, instrumentalists, and
solos. There is no rigid dress code, though evening services tend
to be more informal. Services last about one hour. There is also Preschool Worship (age 4-K)
every Sunday in room 210. Bible Study for all ages begins at 9:45 a.m. The
church has a "cry room" equipped with closed circuit TV of the services,
