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 0-2 years old meet in the toddler nursery on the lower level. Those 3 years old through 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: Pre-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 in the gym. There is an adult class that meets upstairs behind the balcony, as well as another class that meets in the Fireside room by the side doors downstairs, and a third adult class meets upstairs by the gym in room 209. All adults are welcome to attend any class. Click here for Sunday School class options.
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. Everyone is encouraged to take your food and drinks with you to Sunday School. The food items are donated by members of the congregation. Java Jam is available from the end of August until the end of May.
Wednesday Morning Prayer:
There is a prayer service that meets at 8:00 am on Wednesdays. 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 school year from 6:45 to 8:00 pm. There are programs for all ages available. The nursery in the basement is for all children 0-4 years old. Kid’s Club meets in the gym 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. Periodically the Adult Service features a mission night for the adults with a visit from a missionary or a mission update. Following the mission update there is Bible study and prayer.
If the Hillsdale Community Schools are cancelled due to inclement weather or a school holiday, Kid’s Club and Youth Group are automatically cancelled for that week.
During the summer there are no programs offered for elementary through high school, but nursery is open to the preschool and elementary aged 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 room 205 upstairs. Each week the children sing, and then have a Bible lesson along with lesson related activities. Following the service the children can be picked up in room 205.
