What are services like?
We’re happy you’ve asked. Our church can seem traditional but has some modern flair. When you enter, you’ll see stained glass windows and usually the pastor and choir wear traditional robes. We follow an order of service that begins with the ringing of the bells and includes a call to worship, hymns, prayer, scripture readings, a children’s sermon, and the pastor’s meditation. Worship goers sit in pews and stand for parts of the service but there is no kneeling.
We celebrate communion the first Sunday of each month, usually with individual serving cups and wafers handed out to attendees sitting in the pews. All are welcome. The pastor’s meditation may include storytelling, a slideshow, or on occasion may act out a mock interview. Children are welcome to come up to the front for pastor to conduct the children’s sermon, in which she may have props or a small activity.
We have two hymnals that the bulletin will indicate which to use for a hymn, and there are bibles in the pews if you wish to follow along with the readings. Guests, there is no expectation for you to provide a monetary gift or offering.
Are children welcome?
Yes! Children are welcome to attend service. Buddy bags, filled with quiet activities for children, are available on the rack as you enter the church. There is no staffed nursery but there is a play area for children in the basement, which does broadcast the service over the speakers. From September to May, we also have our Kids for Christ Sunday school prior to service at 8:45am.
What are church goers here like?
Friendly and welcoming. We are a small congregation and usually notice a new visitor or guest, so don’t be surprised if we welcome you and ask if there is anything you need. We do have a time in service for sharing of the peace, where we greet each other. It’s been said because of the long nature of the sanctuary and lack of mobility of some of our older members, it sometimes becomes a “conga line”. We want to ensure we move and greet the majority of our attendees. Our members consist of young and old – there have been families that have attended here for many generations. Attire also spans widely – from jeans to business causal.
Please feel welcome to attend, whether you’re just visiting (once or many times) or looking for a new church home. Wherever you are on Christ’s journey, you are welcome here.
