We gather on Sunday mornings at 10am. However, there are always several families who arrive early to set up chairs, organize the tea & coffee, connect the PA system, and prepare Sunday School for children. Normally by 9:45, setup is complete and you’re likely to hear chatting and laughing. If you arrive early, you’ll most certainly receive a warm welcome and a hot drink! The Bible says the church is like a family, so we try to act like it in the best sense of the term: informal, warm, and welcoming. Come just as you are and find rest.
Usually around 10am, we’ll begin a more focused time of worship. This usually involves singing songs of worship together with lyrics projected on a screen and accompanied by an acoustic guitar, piano, and percussion.
This is usually followed by a time of prayer in small groups. Praying out loud is not required, but we believe that God is our Father and loves to hear us talk to him! Children are usually involved in this time of prayer and then are dismissed for Sunday School. Our Sunday School teachers prepare a Bible lesson, games, crafts, and songs each week for our children aged 3-9.
Once the children have left, someone will teach from the Bible. We believe God speaks directly to us through the Bible, so we take time each Sunday to hear what He has to say and how it relates to life today. The service ends with a song and a blessing, but most folks stick around to chat afterwards.
