WELCOME HOME
 
Our traditional service features the timeless majesty of one of the finest pipe organs in Manatee County played by the renowned composer Dr. Jim Culver. Jim also leads our forty voice, multi-part choir which offers Manatee County some of the finest traditional music in the state of Florida. This weekly service at 10:30 a.m. offers the historic tradition of the psalter, creeds and sound Biblical preaching. Communion is offered the first Sunday of the month and on holy days.
 
Join us on Sundays at 10:30 AM
