Public Worship means that everyone is invited—including you! We know how it can be uncomfortable to visit a church. Honestly, Worship feels like a foreign experience for most of us! It’s a regular dose of a Reality that we’re not usually conscious of. It’s entering together, by the Holy Spirit, into Jesus the Son’s very relationship with the Father, as a gift of his grace. We meet in order to have a life-transforming personal encounter with this living God. We know how weird that probably sounds! However strange it might seem to you, please know that you are welcome here, because God is truly a hospitable God and we’re glad to extend his hospitality to everyone.
If you have children age four and under, you may use the nursery next to the sanctuary, or keep them with you if you prefer. And consider yourself invited to stay for coffee and conversation after the service. During the school year, adults usually meet for a discussion of the sermon after folks have had a chance to connect, while children are in Sunday School. It would be great to hear your thoughts and questions!
On the first Sunday of each month, which we call “Mercy Sundays,” we collect a special offering (“Alms”) during the Lord’s Supper, to help meet needs in our community. After Mercy Sunday services we usually engage in some form of compassion ministry together, especially ones that are easy for the children of the church to connect with.
We really hope you can join us! Whether you’re new here, or you’re familiar with our service already, this sermon series may help you to learn more about why we do what we do on the Lord’s Day.
