Sunday Morning Worship

As Christians, our lives have been purchased by Christ on Calvary, so every day of our lives is set apart for God — in all our eating, drinking, working, and playing. Without bringing contradiction to this reality, Christians have always set apart one day a week to especially invest in the life of their local church and worship God together. From the earliest days of the New Testament Church, Christians have made a practice of meeting on Sunday because it is the day that Jesus rose from the dead. We make Sunday a significant day in the life of our church by meeting for corporate worship in the morning and for a time of prayer in the evening.

10:00am Sunday Morning All Church Worship Gathering

The centerpiece of our life together as a church is our weekly Sunday Worship Gathering at 10:00am. During this gathering we pray together, confess our faith together, sing praises to God together, read Scripture together, and sit under the preaching of God's Word together.

Ministry to Families During the Sunday Morning Worship Gathering

Our trained and background checked children's ministry workers provide age-targeted ministry from six-months-old to 8-years-old during the second half of the Sunday morning worship service. 

 

However, we also love having children of all ages with the congregation during the whole worship service. We encourage every parent to transition their children to be with the whole congregation under the preaching of God's Word, sometime before fourth grade.

We use The Gospel Story Curriculum in our children's ministry programming. The Gospel Story Bible by Marty Machowski can be used at home for family devotions to coincide with what your child is learning in the children's ministry classrooms. Talk to one of our children's ministry workers to learn more.

6:00pm Sunday Evening Prayer Gathering

We encourage the whole congregation to come to gather for a short time on Sunday evenings. During this evening service we usually sing one or two songs in praise to God, review scripture memory verses and catechism questions, spend time in prayer for the needs of the congregation and the spread of the gospel throughout the world, and receive a short encouragement from God's Word that compliments the morning sermon.
