What To Expect in a Worship Service
Worship services, in our beautiful neo-gothic sanctuary, begin Sunday mornings at 10:45 AM. Our worship services reflect the inclusive nature of our theology. The preaching engages the listener in ways that offer comfort and challenge from scripture. We use the New Revised Standard version of the bible.
The choir draws from a number of musical styles to enrich our worship. The choir is always open to new members and regularly rehearses on Thursday evenings at 7:00 PM during the school year. Our organist is a gifted church musician whose preludes and postludes encourage worshipers to arrive early and remain to listen at the conclusion of the service. Our congregation enjoys singing the old familiar and wonderful new hymns from The New Century Hymnal.
The nursery is available for parent care for Communion, usually the first Sunday of the month; care for infants and toddlers is provided during other Sunday worship services. Early in the service, there is a story especially for children. During the hymn that follows, young children (through 3rd grade) may leave to go to the nursery or to Church school. Older children are encouraged to worship with their families. Special worship bulletins and materials are prepared for them.
The Sacrament of Holy Communion, or the Lord's Supper, is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month as well as on special days of the church year. All Christians are invited to share the bread and the cup from our Lord's table.
In addition to Sundays, there are special worship services on Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve, Ash Wednesday, and Maundy Thursday. Throughout the year, various other worship opportunities are offered as the occasion arises. Following Sunday worship, there is a time for fellowship with light refreshment and informal conversation.
For a better idea of the flow of worship, you can find previously published bulletins or listen to recordings of recent sermons.
