Our Worship Service

Join us for worship every Sunday at 10 a.m.!  All ages are welcome!

A Warm Welcome. When you visit our church, we promise to greet you warmly. We will give you a bulletin describing  our services, including the music, Bible readings, and upcoming church events. Words to the songs  appear on the screens in the front of the sanctuary. You will find Bibles and hymnals on the back of the pew in front of you. A nursery is provided for infants and toddlers, if you wish; and there are classes for your children as described below.

Communion. On the first Sunday of each month, we celebrate Communion in remembrance of Jesus’ sharing at the table with His disciples. Everyone is invited to participate as they wish, no matter how old you are or what tradition you come from. If you’d rather not participate in Communion, that’s fine too. The format for Communion varies somewhat and is explained in the worship bulletin.

Children in Worship. Children of all ages are WELCOME in worship!  Most Sundays, children join us for the first part of the worship service.  After Story Time, children go to Sunday School classes or to the nursery during the rest of the worship service..  Children are always welcome to stay for  the entire worship service with their families, if you wish.  On the first Sunday of the month, the children’s classes return for the last part of the service to celebrate Communion with their family.  There are worship bags in the entry to the church for children with quiet activities they can do during church,   the bags are returned to their hooks each week so they’re ready for the following Sunday.

We Sing. We sing many songs during our worship to God. This is a communal activity that helps to bind us together as a congregation and show our love for God. Our hymnal contains over 600 songs from cultures all over the world. We also have special music Sundays featuring guest musicians and a variety of music styles that celebrate God and God’s people. You can sing if you want or simply listen.

We Pray. We offer prayers to God. We celebrate blessings from God. We ask God for guidance and care. We pray that God will comfort the sick and afflicted, be with those who are traveling, and give guidance to our national and the world leaders. Our prayers are heartfelt!

We Hear a Lesson. We hear readings from the Bible and a sermon that is really based on those readings. We gain insight into the Bible readings and learn how to apply them in our day and time. We seek for you to learn and feel strengthened by the message.

We Contribute. We take up a weekly collection for the work of the local church and it’s work in the world, but we do not expect our visitors to contribute. After all, you are visiting.

We Have Goodies. After the service, you are invited to join us in the social hall for goodies including healthy snacks, punch, tea and coffee. This is our time for fellowship, gathering to get acquainted and learn about each other. We have fair-trade coffee and tea come from our partners at Equal Exchange that are available for sale.  There’s also often special programs, classes, and guest speakers at 11:30 a.m.

We want you to feel comfortable.  Some of us wear jeans and some of us like to dress up a little more.  Some of us need to move around or use the restroom during worship; some would prefer to stay still.  Some of us cry a little during worship – some laugh and raise their hands to God.  Some of us are in wheelchairs and sit in the open spaces provided next to the shorter pews.  Some of us color on our bulletins during worship.  You are welcome here, however you dress, and however you worship.

We Hope You Return!
