Worship times-What to expect

Worship times-What to expect

Worship Services and Church School for grades K-8 are from 10-11 a.m. on Sundays.  Nursery care is provided for children through age 5. A time of refreshment and informal conversation follows and all are welcome.

The Sacrament of Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month.  Everyone who believes in Jesus Christ is welcome to participate in Communion.

Worship is how we honor and thank God. Worship is also a time when the members of the church are united by the Holy Spirit and are formed into ‘the body of Christ’.   On Sunday mornings, we do this together in a Service of Worship as we listen to God’s Word to us from the Bible and respond to his Word in song and prayer.

Every part of the Worship Service flows from the Bible: in Scripture readings,  the Pastor’s sermon (when a Scripture is examined in detail and applied to life), prayers and singing.  Church members give a weekly offering that supports the ministries of the church.  Visitors are ‘our guests’ and are not expected to contribute.

Families worship together at the beginning of the Service which includes a Children’s Message based on the main Bible theme for the day.  Children through grade 8 then go to Sunday School classes or stay with their parents for the remainder of the Service.

Following the Worship Service, we gather for refreshments and conversation as we catch up with one another from week to week.  On certain occasions, a full meal is served or a pot luck lunch is enjoyed.  We invite everyone who comes to the Worship Service to stay for this time of extended gathering.
