WORSHIP SERVICE: Our worship time together consists of:
- Lord’s Supper – Because the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus are central to the gospel message, we emphasize the Lord’s Supper (Communion) as the core of our worship experience. Communion is a special time to remember what happened at the cross, what it means, and how it impacts our lives as believers (Luke 22:19). We invite all people of faith to share the bread and wine (unfermented grape juice) during this time. Visiting guests can participate to whatever degree they are comfortable.
- Prayer – We believe God inhabits our praises and hears our petitions (Psalm 22:3). Our elders and other men of the church offer up prayers throughout the service.
- Sermon – We believe God reveals Himself in scripture and our minister gives lessons based on scripture so we may grow in the grace and truth of Jesus.
- Singing –Like the early church, we “praise God with acapella singing (voices only) that encourages one another with hymns, and spiritual songs (Ephesians 5:19). We are led by a worship leader and the song lyrics with musical notation are projected on the large screen in front of the auditorium.
- Giving – We take an opportunity during the assembly to return a portion of our physical blessings back to God as an expression of thankfulness (2 Corinthians 9:7). Visiting guests can participate to whatever degree they are comfortable.
- Children’s Worship – Children from two years through Kindergarten are dismissed, to enjoy a lesson on their own level, after communion and before the sermon (Mark 10:14-16). Our adult teachers are trained and equipped to care for your child in the most loving way possible. Children will remain in this room until they are picked up by their parents after service. If you would rather keep your child with you for the duration of the service, you are welcome to do so.
A fully-staffed nursery for newborns to children up to two years old is available during our Bible classes (9:00 am) and worship service (10:00 am). You are welcome to keep your child with you during worship service. If you need to attend to your child during service, we have a Training Room in the back of the auditorium for training crying babies to be calm during worship. You may also nurse your baby in a private area of the nursery.
- Listening devices for the hearing impaired can be obtained at the information center in the large foyer.
- Restrooms are located downstairs in our worship and education areas. One of the women’s restrooms and the handicap accessible restroom include baby changing stations.
