One Church, Two Ways to Worship
What style of worship do you have?
We have two options. The early service is a contemporary expression of Christian worship and starts at 8:45am in the Fellowship Hall. This worship is supported by our Praise Team, a multi-generational group who leads in contemporary Christian music. You also experience the use of multi-media presentations as film and current event clips are used to enhance the worship experience.
The late service meets at 11:00am in the Sanctuary following an hour of Sunday School. Supporting this worship is our Chancel Choir singing an eclectic selection of music from the master composers of the past and the choral innovators of today. Congregational singing is accompanied by a pipe organ and piano as we sing hymns that reflect our faith.
What should we know about the worship services?
Our Sunday worship service has a traditional feel to it, which is a nice counterbalance to our progressive theology. We have a wonderful choir and their musical presentations are always up-lifting. We pray together, sing hymns, have about a seventeen minute sermons, and collect an offering that supports the ministries and missions of the church. You won’t find us reciting creeds, but we do occasionally recite prayers and litanies together. Once a quarter, we offer communion to all those who would like to partake (any age, regardless of his or her baptismal status). The entire service lasts approximately one hour, though we hope the effects of your time with us will last much, much longer.
What do I do with my children?
Childcare is provided at "The Preschool Place" (the white house next to the church building) for infants to four years of age. A nursery worker will be waiting at the door and will be glad to assist you. A "Children's Moment" is offered in BOTH services as well. Several parents keep their children in the contemporary service until after the Children’s Moment and then take them to nursery. You are more than welcome, though, to keep your children in the worship service. They are not a distraction but rather a very beautiful part of our church body.
