We worship on Sundays at two different times, in two different styles (we think substance is more important than style):
8:30 a.m. Contemporary Worship An “ancient/modern” contemporary, come as you are service of prayers, new music, videos, communion, candles, and hearing from our core scripture texts. We call this service “Transitions”
11:00 a.m. Traditional Presbyterian-style Worship: hymns, choir, and traditional Reformed elements of worship. The Lord’s Supper is served the first Sunday of the Month and on church “feast days” such as Easter.
309 E. 21st Ave. Gulf Shores (this is our physical address: not for mail)
