Sunday Morning Worship
There are two services every Sunday: 8:30 (traditional) and 10:50 (contemporary). The structure of both services are basically the same with the main difference being the music. The early service offers piano, flute and organ accompaniment with the singing of hymns and more traditional praise choruses. The contemporary service features guitar, bass, piano and drums with more contemporary songs. Pastor Keith gives the same (for the most part) sermon in each of the services.
The Sunday School hour is from 9:50 to 10:40 am. There are classes available for all ages, infant through adult. Children 0-4 years old meet in the toddler nursery on the lower level. Those in elementary grades meet in the middle of the upstairs rooms for singing and teaching the first twenty minutes, and then they are dismissed to classes: K-1st, 2nd-3rd and 4th-5th. Middle and high school students meet upstairs in the youth room by the gym. The college age class meets behind the balcony. There is an adult class that meets upstairs by the gym, as well as another class that meets in the Fireside room by the side doors downstairs, and a third adult class meets in the gym behind the blue curtain. All adults are welcome to attend any class. A Christianity 101 Class and a Membership Class meet several times a year.
The Java Jam is a time for coffee, tea and goodies from 9:30 to 10:30 am in the gym. People gather for a snack and drink before attending Sunday School. The food items are donated by members of the congregation.
Wednesday Morning Prayer:
There is a prayer service that meets at 8:00 am on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 5th Wednesday of each month. A prayer sheet typed up from requests from the Welcome Sheets is passed out and requests are brought before God in prayer. Everyone is welcome to join us.
Wednesday Evening Church:
There is Wednesday evening church every Wednesday throughout the year from 7:00 to 8:15 pm. During the school year there are programs for all ages available. The nursery in the basement is for all children 0-4 years old. Kid’s Club meets upstairs for elementary aged children. Youth Group meets in the youth room upstairs for all middle and high school students, and the adults meet in the sanctuary for prayer and Bible Study. The third Wednesday of each month features a mission night for the adults with a visit from a missionary or a mission update from Juli Wahtola. Following the mission update there is Bible study and prayer.
During the summer there are no programs offered for preschool and elementary aged children, but nursery is open to the children of adults attending Wednesday evening church.
There are special services for children 4 years old through 5th grade during the 10:50 worship service. Children’s Church meets in the gym on the ground level on the west end of the building. The children begin worship with their parents in the sanctuary and after the worship time and Children’s Chat, they are dismissed. Each week the children sing, and then have a Bible lesson along with lesson related activities. If you have questions, please contact Jody Saunders at firstname.lastname@example.org or 517-918-2849.
