Our "big event" each week is the Sunday Morning Worship Service, which takes place from September to May both at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. (with a warm and friendly "Intermission" coffee and fellowship time in the gym at 10:15 a.m.). (In June, July and August, our Sunday mornings feature one service only that begins at 10:00 a.m.)
Although a whole series of church activities show up from time to time in the course of a Sunday morning (special announcements and presentations, infant dedications, introduction of new members, baptisms, etc.), the two main features are:
- the church family hearing from God through the preaching of His Word. The "norm" is a sermon that is based on a specific passage of the Bible and is designed to clarify and deepen our understanding of what the passage is really saying about God and the will of God for our lives, and to explain how to apply the truths of the passage to everyday life.
- God hearing from the church family through our singing of praises, our prayers, the reading of Scripture and the presentation of our tithes and offerings. Various artists and art forms are used to give praise to God as we journey together and prepare our hearts and minds to hear a transformational message from God's Word.
While the Worship Services are taking place each Sunday morning, our infants are receiving tender loving care in the Seedlings Room, and our children (Ages 3 to Grade 8 at 9:00 and to Grade 3 at 11:00) are being instructed and encouraged to know and love God in our GROWZONE and JUNIOR HIGH programs.
"Communion" is regularly celebrated as a part of the Sunday morning Worship Services, usually once a month.
