Worship

 

The Sunday morning service is the center of our congregational life. In an informal yet structured service, we listen for God’s word, meditate God’s direction for us, pray together and sing in praise and thanksgiving our blessings. During worship we also share, if we wish to, what’s most important to us during “joys and concerns.” Spiritual seekers are welcome to join us as we explore questions of faith together.

 

 

 

Services are held in the beautiful sanctuary of our church. The sanctuary has an open high wooden cathedral ceiling and wooden trestle support beams. The walls on each side contain stained glass windows donated by members of the church and various church organizations. In the front of the sanctuary directly behind the pulpit and located high on the back wall is “The Rose” window. Members of the congregation designed the windows themselves 

 

 

 

When you enter our church on Sunday morning you will be welcomed at the door with a friendly handshake. Greeters will provide you with a nametag and show you into the sanctuary where ushers will greet you and provide you with the service bulletin. Prior to the service a multimedia display lists weekly and monthly events in the life of the church and where to obtain additional information. The worship service includes hymn singing, prayers, choral anthems and a special time for children. Music to nurture our spirits is provided by our Rodgers Trillium organ, piano, and sometimes guitar.

 

The sermon is focused, Biblical and relevant to everyday life. We observe the sacraments of communion and baptism. Communion is the first Sunday of the month. The communion table is open to all. Children are always welcome in our worship. Our Church School meets for Christian Education in our Upper Room or in the Fellowship Hall. Children leave worship after the children’s time. Children are in Sunday School during the remainder of the worship service. On communion Sunday the children join their families back in the sanctuary for communion. Childcare is available during the entire service for infants and pre-school children.


After the service, we invite all worshipers to join us for fellowship, along with some coffee and other refreshments.
