Every Sunday at 10 a.m. we gather from around the neighborhood and across town to share our faith, refresh our spirits, and support each other during our worship service. What is it like?
Do you like to sing? We do! Our worship service begins with songs of praise. On any Sunday you could hear traditional hymns, gospel classics, contemporary praise music, or a mix of them all. Throughout the service you’ll hear soloists, our choir, and talented musicians.
Opening our worship with music helps to leave the world behind as we quiet our hearts for prayer and contemplation.
Our service includes a short Children’s message that puts the week’s scripture into kid-friendly language and meaning. Children are welcome to stay for the rest of the service or head off to Sunday School. Our “crying room” is always open and we also offer nursery care most weeks.
As an open Bible church, we are urged to open our Bibles and read along with the week’s scripture.
We think of the sermon as a refresher message, connecting the power of God’s Word to our lives.
On the first and third Sunday of the month as well as at other special times, we celebrate communion. All who are seeking Jesus are welcome at the Lord’s table.
Prayers of the People is a time for public and private prayer and praise.
“Praise God from whom all blessings flow….” Every week we sing these words which date back to 1674.
We close by wishing each other the “Peace of Christ.” This isn’t just another way to say “Have a nice day!” The Presbyterian Mission Agency (PCUSA) explains it as
“Our peace comes from knowing how much God loves us in Jesus Christ. With God’s help, we try to love and forgive one another as Christ loves and forgives us. So when someone says, “The peace of Christ be with you,” we respond, “And also with you.”
Our service is usually over by 11:15 a.m., leaving time for coffee and conversation before we head out to face another week refreshed and renewed.
