Worship

img_0394Lively and meaningful worship, which deepens our relationship with God and with fellow believers, is a hallmark of our tradition and this church.

at 8:45 AM every Sunday morning, we gather in the Sanctuary for our Modern Service of Worship. Dress is casual. The band plays music with a pop-rock flair. All ages are welcome to participate in the praise elements of worship. The pastor shares a special message with the children and youth, and then they are invited to get deeper in the Word in church school classes designed especially for their abilities and questions. At the conclusion of the service, parents meet their children at the classrooms.

at 10:30 AM every Sunday morning, we gather in the Sanctuary for our Classic Service of Worship. We sing hymns and songs from a wide range of Christian music, accompanied by organ and piano. Our Chancel Choir shares an anthem and helps to lead the congregation in worship.

Communion, a time when we receive symbols of Jesus’ presence in our lives, and through which we become the body of Christ in the world, is a vital part of worship. We celebrate Holy Communion on the First Sunday of each month, at both services. Since Christ is the host of the meal, all persons who are part of the larger family of Jesus, without regard to denominational affiliation, or to any of the wonderful ways in which God has made us different and distinct from each other, are invited to receive. Children are invited to participate with families for Communion, more information here.

Special music at the worship services is often provided by one of our bell choirs, the children’s choir, music students, or others who wish to make an offering to God through the gift of music.
