10:45 a.m. service starts
Our service formally begins at 10:45am, led by one of our pastors. During this time, we sing songs, offer prayers of praise and confession to God, then hear God's Word preached.
Sunday School takes place for both children (from nursery aged children to children in grade 6) and adults. During this time, we host an option of Adult Elective Classes that you can attend, most junior high students attend one of these options as well. These classes will run from September to June and all are welcome to join in this education hour, help us to comprehend the subtle intricacies and overarching truths of our God and the theology, ministry, and history He has authored.
We utilize a check-in system for children's classes, so if you have children, you may want to arrive a few minutes earlier to get them checked-in (9:00am to 11am is open) and settled in their respective classes with their teachers from there. At this same time the parents elective classes end and they can go listen to them sing and pray if they like in the fellowship hall. At 10:30am parents will pick-up and check-out their children from the children's ministry prior to making their way to the Sanctuary for our main worship service.
Current Adult Elective Classes:
- Systematic Theology: Downstairs fellowship hall
- Parenting: Luther Hall (next to check-in station)
We begin our main worship service at 10:45am with all of our deliberate attention focused upon the living God!
After an opening greeting and a few announcements, one of our pastors will begin the worship service by reading from a Scripture text as a summons for us to turn our hearts Godward.
This opening meditation is followed by songs and hymns of praise sung to guitar and/or piano or flute accompaniment. Many of the hymn lyrics are from earlier centuries set to new arrangements. The lyrics are projected on the screen at the front since we do not have printed hymnals available.
Parents with small children can check in their children at the check in desk through the west entrance doors beside Luther Hall. There is a volunteer there to help answer any questions you may have. Nursery and Children's Catechism Classes are offered during the main service at the point of the 4th worship song. Parents can bring their chidlren to the nursery next to Luther Hall or to the catechism class downstairs in the basement next to the fellowship hall. Nursery is made available for babies and toddlers up to age 3 and catechism class is geared for chidlren 3-5 years. In this class the children are taught one question each week from the New City Catechism. This question is in the bulletin each week. Children over the age of 5 are encouraged to join the adults during the main service and are required to be checked in between 9am and 11:15am if they are going to attend the catechism or nursery during the main service.
A message from the Scriptures is given that aims to exposit (i.e. expose, or unpack) what the passage is saying.
We conclude the service with another hymn and a parting benediction.
An easy transition toward informal conversation rounds out our time together.
For anyone not able to attend in person, our main service is streamed live for remote viewing.
Our tradition is to "proclaim the Lord's death until he comes" (1 Cor 11:23-26) by partaking in the Lord's Supper, remembering the Lord together on the first Sunday of every month at the beginning of the main service preceding the preaching of the Word. All believers who do believe and trust in Jesus Christ, partake in the Lord's Supper.
It always a joy to observe those who proclaim their union with Christ in his death and resurrection by being baptized (Romans 6:3-5). Our practice is to periodically have a "Baptism Sunday" throughout the year, where we will hear the testimonies from those being baptized during the main service and then will move outside to the church courtyard after the main service is over to observe the public profession of faith.
Daily Walk and Community Groups
Throughout the week we seek Christ and live obediently to him in our various callings and settings. In so doing we aim to testify concerning the rule and reign of God in this world by the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Smaller groups by region, called "Community Groups", typically meet bi-weekly as a time of informal prayer, study, fellowship and a family potluck meal together.
