Sunday morning worship is a time characterized by vibrant congregational singing, shared leadership of the service, and a focus on our need for the gospel and the sufficiency of Jesus. We like it. We still sing from hymnbooks (the revised Trinity Hymnal, The Psalter, and other older hymns), but we also sing many contemporary choruses from the 70s through our current year, and special music may include bluegrass, jazz, or classical selections. We take an offering on Sunday mornings, and the first Sunday of each month we:
- take an offering for our Deacons’ Fund which helps those in need in our church and at times, in our neighborhood.
- get together for a potluck lunch after the morning worship service.
- celebrate the Lord’s Supper (communion), which includes small cups of juice, and gluten-free bread for those who need it.
Also, during the offering, the congregation is invited to stand and give praise, or prayer request, or a special reading from the Bible, or even give a musical offering.
The sermons from our pastor, Rev. Cal Boroughs, are excellent. He preaches from the Bible, through the Bible, book by book. You can hear the sermons on this website LINK.
Most of us dress casually for Sunday morning worship, but we also have a few fashionistas among us of all ages, and we LOVE to talk to each other Sunday mornings before and after Sunday School and morning worship. Grab a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate and come hang out with us.
An overflow area is available downstairs (enter using back stairs in sanctuary or 44th Street entrance ramp) for more seating or those with medical infirmities (back injuries, post surgical healing) and parents with situations with children (nursing, correction, attention).
Third Sunday Evening
Every 3rd Sunday night of each month we gather
together for an informal service which is preceded by a meal. At 5:30pm we eat together – everyone bringing their own meal. At 6:00pm the service begins with singing, a short devotional, and a time of prayer. The service concludes at 6:45pm, in time for the Youth Groups to get their time in downstairs.
