Worship Services

English Worship Services

We have two similar morning services, 8:45 in the Chapel, and 11:00 in the Sanctuary. Both services are “traditional” in style with scripture readings, hymns, using organ, piano, and other added instrumentalists. In both services, soloists and ensembles provide special music, with the addition of a service choir 11:00 service.  Children’ and Youth choirs play an important role as well.  Our pastor, or guest ministers, preach biblically-based sermons and once a month, we observe the Ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.  Several times during the year in Family Dedications for families with new children are offered.

The Well is an informal, more contemporary worship service. It is held at 8:45 a.m. on Sundays in the Family Life Center Gym. The message is delivered by either by our pastor, laity, other ministers or laity from the church, or guest speakers. Come as you are, and we will provide the coffee! Learn more about this service, and how to get involved here.

At the end of our services an invitation to Christian discipleship and church membership is extended to the participants. We have Communion the first Sunday of the month in all services, as well as on Maundy Thursday and Christmas Eve (Gluten, wheat, dairy, corn and soy – free wafers are available).

in the Sanctuary

If you long for the simplicity of worship in music with contextual depth, then our Traditional worship service at 11:00a.m. in the Sanctuary may be for you. Hymns sung to piano and organ accompaniment and clear, sound preaching from the Bible are what you will find here each week. You will also be blessed by our Sanctuary Choir, Bells, Children’s music and special music. Each Sunday is an invitation to grow closer to God and His purpose for your life through this worship experience. There are several Children’s Sermons offered throughout the month as well as special music presented by our Children’s and Youth choirs, chimes and bells. We all come together as a worshiping community for our hearts to be lifted and our lives to be presented to the Lord.
