Powerful worship experience in a new format!

Sunday, September 2, will be a unique worship experience at Schweitzer. From 8:00 am until noon, there will be a continuous flow of worship as we find ways to break through the barriers that can keep us from experiencing God. Join us for the entire morning or during the time you usually attend worship. Modern and Traditional worship at 11:00, usually in two different venues, will gather together for worship in the sanctuary. Plan to be part of this exciting day as we go deeper in worship!
