What to expect when you come to visit...
Liturgy means "the work of the people". When we gather to worship, the different actions and responses we participate in and experience are all part of our "work" in joining in the worship of our Lord. Our worship services have a Christ-centered liturgy. We focus on bringing together the Word and the Table every time we gather together. There are specific prayers and words that we use during worship but don't worry if you don't know them. We have them on the screen to help and it is fine if you just want to sit back and observe as well. We believe in an open table for communion that means all people are welcomed to participate. We serve gluten free friendly bread and grape juice instead of wine as a way to minister to those with certain needs.
We believe that worship is "caught" just as much as it is taught. By not secluding adults, teens, and children; we are able to worship in a space that allows for learning and training. We understand that children have energy and we welcome it. We also have coloring packets and a nursery available. We bring together everyone as part of our "work" during worship. Scripture readings are available for anyone to read, the children help with the receiving of tithes and offerings and we even have a growing children's choir.
The Christian life is a relational life. We grow in our relationship with God and with others. That is why we work hard to provide opportunities for relationships to form and grow. Whether it is our community garden, our annual free car inspection, Trick or Treat warming station, spending holidays by sharing meals with those who don't have anyone, or our weekly devotional groups; there are plenty of ways to form relationships with other people.
