Please note: On-campus worship gatherings are cancelled until further notice due to COVID-19. Below you will find the guides for Sunday worship at home.
Our primary worship service is offered every Sunday morning at 10am in the Sanctuary and in English. Our worship service is based on a reformed liturgy (arrangement of worship). We offer both traditional music (hymns) and contemporary music, combined into a blended worship. Participating in worship every Sunday is our pastor/preacher, a lay leader, our chancel choir, our praise team, and all those in attendance.
Seating is available throughout the Sanctuary and is accessible for those with mobility issues. We provide hearing devices for those in need of them. Our greeters will offer you a nametag and help you feel comfortable. Our ushers can direct you to an open seat if you wish. Each pew contains Bibles (we usually use the NRSV, New Revised Standard Version, or the CEB, Common English Bible) and hymnals; however, all lyrics and spoken responses are projected up front for all to see.
We endeavor to create an environment where all people, including children, can worship God together. For those who desire it, there is a room towards the rear of the sanctuary that is set aside for parents. Childcare is available for those children not yet in preschool. Children are welcome to attend Sunday School. We offer two classes: 1) PreK-Kindergarten (meets in CE Room) and 2) 1st-5th grade (meets in CE Room). Trained instructors lead your children through the bible text used in worship in a multi-sensory way.
Sunday, May 17, 2020 A Service to Share
And thank you for your patience. It has been one of those days when the best I can say is, "Well, it will make a good sermon illustration someday."
I'll spare you the details; otherwise, there goes the sermon illustration. Suffice it to say, I was attempting a new thing today, something more approximating some of what's traditional for us on Sundays. Then, figuratively speaking, the soup pan sprung a leak and there went the soup.
What's great is that I'm still able to send you the PowerPoint part of the service. And I can claim that what wound up on the floor was GREAT, and you'll be kind enough to sort of believe me, for which I am truly grateful.
The main thing is that below is an order of worship that you can pray through, read through. Join me in missing the music. Join me in seeking God in the silence. Let us together offer ourselves, our worship, to the One who made us and loves us, soup-spillers all.
