Sunday Morning Worship

We want to be a church which worships together. Since we believe that all of life is worship—wherever we live, work, or play— gathering on Sundays is at the center of our life as a church: it prepares us for the week ahead, reminds us of who we are in Christ, and gives us the opportunity to praise the great God whom we serve.

So, every Sunday we come together in the morning and evening to hear and respond to God’s Word through preaching, prayer, hymns, and the sacraments of baptism and communion.

Style of Sunday Worship

The style of worship varies Sunday to Sunday and even song to song, but one thing is constant: our worship is centered upon God’s Word, the Bible. You’ll notice a blend of contemporary and traditional hymns, all carefully selected to reflect the day’s Scripture passage. And because worship isn’t a spectator sport, we often affirm together what we believe through responsive readings and creeds. 

Children

Nursery & preschool are provided for children birth-rising Kindergarten; rising 1st-5th graders will be dismissed from the worship service to their own time of Worship and Wonder for the remainder of the worship service. There are also two cry rooms available for crying or nursing infants.

Of course, children are very welcome to stay with their parents during the entire service. We only ask that, during prayer or a sermon, crying babies be taken out. The sermon is relayed into both cry rooms and the gallery.

Spanish Translation

Live Spanish translation is available during the 10:30am service, and in the 7:00pm service upon request. Headsets are available in the gallery.

Sunday Worship and the Arts

Our music and arts ministry contributes in many different ways to our worship.  Please see the Music and Arts Ministry page for more information.

Sundays At Seven (Every Sunday Night)

The informal and relaxed nature of our Sunday evening service invites questions— the more, the better! After a time of singing and a message from God’s Word, we break briefly for refreshments and return for a time of Q & A. No topic is off limits!  We also occasionally look more specifically at particular issues facing our western society from a biblical perspective in our "Real Issues" series. See a full list of upcoming sermons here.

Questions

All of us often want to ask questions of a pastor! In this service, a time of Q&A is built in.  (There is a short gap of a couple of minutes for those who need to leave after the talk.)

Bringing Friends

The informal atmosphere of this service and the opportunity for Q & A make this service ideal for those wanting to learn more about the claims of Christianity. If this is your first time at our church or any church, please join us and invite your friends as we consider the teachings of the Bible.
