The service begins at 10:30 am and lasts an hour and fifteen minutes. It’s the time for the whole church family to worship God together. Worship begins with God calling us into his presence and ends with his blessing as we leave to serve. In between we participate in a dialogue where God speaks through his word and sacrament and we respond through our prayers, songs and giving. It’s a glorious time in our week when God encourages and transforms us and we are empowered as his people.
Preaching is the central part of our worship service. It involves three things: (1) explaining the text that’s read, (2) showing how the text speaks about Christ, and (3) applying the text to the congregation.
The Lord’s Supper is celebrated weekly because we believe that word and sacrament go together for the benefit of God’s people. Anyone may who believes the gospel, has been baptized, is a member in good standing of a Bible believing church, and desires to live a holy life may participate in the sacrament.
