What English-language religious services are available locally?

The Jewish population is very small here and I am not sure about services. Christian services are easy to find, Catholic, Protestant, non denominational, and Mormon. Most are on Fridays as that's the holy day here. Some are in the morning and some in the afternoon depending on the church. - Jan 3, 2018
