Main Service

10:45 a.m. service starts 

 

Our service formally begins at 10:45am, led most often by an elder or pastor. During this time, we sing several songs, offer prayers of praise and confession to God, then hear God's Word preached. 

Sunday, September 10th, 2017 - Sunday School Kick's off for the fall!

September 10th is our Sunday School Kick-Off! Sunday School takes place for both Children (from Nursery aged children to children in grade 6). We also host an option of Adult Elective Classes that you can attend, most junior high students attend one of these options as well. These classes will run from September to June and all are welcome to join in this education hour, help us to comprehend the subtle intricacies and overarching truths of our God and the theology, ministry, and history He has authored. 

We utilize a check-in system for children's classes, so if you have children, you may want to arrive a few minutes earlier to get them checked-in (9:15 am is when this opens) and settled in their respective classes with their teachers from there. At 10:15 the children are lead down to the Fellowship Hall to sing songs and pray. At this same time the parents elective classes end and they can go listen to them sing and pray if they like in the fellowship hall. At 10:30am parents will pick-up and check-out their children from the children's ministry prior to making their way to the Sanctuary for our main worship service.

Main Service

We begin our main worship service at 10:45am with all of our deliberate attention focused upon the living God! 

After an opening greeting and a few announcements, one of our elders will begin the worship service by reading from a Scripture text as a summons for us to turn our hearts Godward.

This opening meditation is followed by songs and hymns of praise sung to guitar and/or piano or flute accompaniment. Many of the hymn lyrics are from earlier centuries set to new arrangements. The lyrics are projected on the screen at the front since we do not have printed hymnals available.

During our 3rd worship song, parents with small children can go downstairs to check their children into the nursery (age 0-2) and catechism class (age 3-5) before the sermon begins. Children over the age of 5 are encouraged to join the adults during the main service. 

A message from the Scriptures is given that aims to exposit (i.e. expose, or unpack) what the passage is saying.

We conclude the service with another hymn and a parting benediction.

An easy transition toward informal conversation rounds out our time together.

For anyone not able to attend in person, our main service is streamed live for remote viewing.

Lord's Supper

Our tradition is to "proclaim the Lord's death until he comes" (1 Cor 11:23-26) by partaking in the Lord's Supper, remembering the Lord together on the first Sunday of every month at the beginning of the main service preceding the preaching of the Word. All believers who do believe and trust in Jesus Christ, partake in the Lord's Supper.

Baptisms

It always a joy to observe those who proclaim their union with Christ in his death and resurrection by being baptized (Romans 6:3-5). Our practice is to periodically have a "Baptism Sunday" throughout the year, where we will hear the testimonies from those being baptized during the main service and then will move outside to the church courtyard after the main service is over to observe the public profession of faith.

Daily Walk and Community Groups

Throughout the week we seek Christ and live obediently to him in our various callings and settings. In so doing we aim to testify concerning the rule and reign of God in this world by the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Smaller groups by region, called "Community Groups", typically meet  bi-weekly as a time of informal prayer, study, fellowship and a family potluck meal together.
