"For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them." Matthew 18:20

We invite you to worship with us each and every Sunday morning at 10:30am in person or at 10:30am online.


Spring Sermon Series

Paul preached the gospel to congregations in Galatia only to discover a short time later that others appeared and insisted that people be circumcised in order to become Christians. This raised the important question, "What is the basis of salvation and inclusion in God's people?" Today, we are tempted to rely on outward marks or personal effort as the basis of our salvation. Galatians offers us the certain hope of the gospel and the life that flows from it. A life lived in the Spirit of God and not by the limitations of religion or personal strength.

April 16 - Galatians 1:1-10; only one gospel

April 23 - Galatians 1:11-24; God's good news

April 30 - Galatians 2:1-21; the basis of being justified

May 7 - Galatians 3:1-25; inheritance of life

May 14 - Galatians 3:26-4:20; adopted into the family of God

May 21 - Galatians 5:1-15; freedom in Christ

June 4 - Galatians 5:16-26; fruit of the spirit

June 11 - Galatians 6:1-18; doing good

Memory Verse

Each quarter, as a congregation, we will work on memorizing a Bible passage that ties in with Pastor Patrick's sermon themes.

Second Quarter 2023
"I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.'" Galatians 2:20

First Quarter 2023
"Jesus replied, 'Go back and report to John what you hear and see: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor.'" Matthew 11:4-5

Junior Church

Before the sermon, all children in preschool and up are invited to go downstairs for Junior Church - a worship experience at their age level.

The kid friendy worship includes starter questions & prayer requests, songs, scripture in child friendly words, and an activity to help understand that scripture passage. With a snack in hand, they talk about the scripture and what it tells them about God. An offering is collected, and the kids have a time of prayer. They close with a memory verse.

Throughout Junior Church, the kids have the chance to learn about the different elements of a worship service and understand how we are able to worship God in a variety of ways.


The Sacrament of Holy Communion will be celebrated during worship on the following Sundays in 2023: February 5, March 5, April 3 (Palm Sunday), May 7, June 4, July 9, August 6, October 1 (World Communion Sunday), November 5, and December 3.

A Typical Service

We meet together to praise and worship the one true God. Pastor Patrick uses a sermon series format to bring about a deeper understanding of a biblical concept or book of the Bible. Our services have traditional elements including hymns accompanied by both organ and piano. Some services also include contemporary arrangements and special music presented by the Mountville choir, small groups, or soloists.

Our services include families with small children as well as those old enough to be grandparents and great grandparents. We believe that children are a sign that the church is growing, so we would rather have noisy children than no children at all. However, there is a play area downstairs for when it is needed. Some people come to worship wearing jeans and t-shirts, and others come wearing dresses or suits. All are welcome.

There is a ramp as well as stairs to access the main door. In the sanctuary, there are large monitors on the front wall to display the order of service, song lyrics, scripture, announcements, etc. as well as a printed paper bulletin. The sound system has recently been upgraded. On the sanctuary level, there is a handicap accessible restroom.
