We wish to highlight a few things that occur during our worship services.
The worship service begins at 9:00 in the worship area. The service is fairly traditional and contains most of the things you may have experienced in church before. We have hopefully eliminated things feeling old fashioned, boredom, and glaring looks. There is a variety of music depending on the week you worship with us.
After the service, be sure to pick up a guest packet and gift at the lobby’s welcome/information table, plan to stay for a while, enjoy some coffee or other beverages, and talk in the kitchen in the church basement.
Our Time of Offering
The offering received at each worship service is based on 1 Corinthians 16:2 – “On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with his income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made.” Some use the tithe (10% of what one earns) as their guide for giving.
The money collected allows us to provide for needs and support ministries locally and around the world. As well these offerings are used to maintain our facility and staff needs. Giving an offering is a voluntary act. You may choose to give if you wish.
The children’s message is a time when the message or theme of the day is introduced to our elementary-aged children in a way for them to more easily understand. An object lesson or illustration of some kind is often used as a means of engagement.
Morning Prayer Time
We lift up our prayers of joys and concerns to God. You will hear mention those who request prayer for themselves or a loved one. Our joys consist of answered prayers, announcing special life events (weddings and births), and more.
The message you hear from the pastor, and others will almost always be relevant and helpful to living our lives and growing to be more like Jesus. The Bible is the center and foundation for these messages. You are welcome to listen to recent sermons by clicking here.
