Hi! Come on in!
Folks here wear everything from jeans and sweats to dresses and suits.
Worship is at 9:30 a.m. and Sunday School starts at 10:45 a.m.
If you come in the front doors, the choir room is to the left. If you go in there, Miriam, the Director, might grab you for the choir. Generally, people enter any of the doors closer to the parking lot, just don’t park in the Pastor’s spot!
If you need the nursery, please go down the stairs to the basement. You’ll see child size tables and chairs – go past those – the nursery is across from the rest rooms.
The sanctuary is to the right of the front doors, or up the stairs from the other entrances. A greeter will give you a bulletin, and if you’d like, help you find a seat. Folks will probably come talk to you.
We often are chatting and visiting before the service. Worship is a mix of contemporary and traditional styles, with choir, hymns and a sermon. We share communion each week. Bread is shared with a neighbor; drink from the cup when you are ready.
Children are welcome to worship with us or we have a Children’s Ministry program where children can worship together.
If you come in the back or side doors, you’ll see our new addition. There are offices for the staff, a Sunday School room for one of our active adult Sunday School groups, and a place to gather and visit.
There is an elevator, but it does not go to the top floor where the youth Sunday School rooms are located.
Donut Sunday is the first Sunday of the month, DON’UT MISS THIS. We have Fellowship meals every month or two. PLEASE stay for this meal! Every table is the Lord’s, and He invites you to share in the food and friendship in His name.
Our youth groups are active! If you hear about a youth event happening this afternoon, and your kid wants to participate, we’ll make it happen!
Here is a sample of our Order of Worship, so you know what to expect.
And now, the awkward questions you may be wondering, but don’t want to ask:
God loves you no matter what. God looks at sin as sickness, and God sent Jesus the “doctor” to make us well. God can cure any sickness, and wants us to have wholeness and joy in our lives.
In olden days, you would have been whacked on the head with a pole (if a man), or tickled awake (if a woman). We just let you snooze.
A passage of Scripture will be read, and the sermon will describe how people interacted with God in those times, and how we interact with God in our times. It usually is around 15 – 20 minutes.
It happens. We’ve had spilled bread, and more spectacularly, spilled grape juice. Folks will offer immediate help.
We’ll be too busy dealing with the embarrassing things our kids and grandkids are doing to pay any mind.
Good news – we don’t have pay per worship services! Guests are not expected to contribute. If your heart is moved to put something in the plate – thank you very much.
It’s true some folks like certain pews. They’re usually in them by 9:10 or so. If you’re really worried about this, please ask a greeter to help you (the person who just shook your hand and gave you a bulletin).
If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask!
