Sunday Morning Services

8:00 a.m. Worship with weekly Holy Communion
10:30 a.m. Worship with Holy Communion served monthly, on first Sundays.
 
Both worship services are mixed with musical styles and offerings. The Adult Choir is present regularly in the 10:30 a.m. Service and occasionally there are ensemble groups, solo gifts, and instrumental additions to the praise and glory of God.
 
 

Ways you can help engage children in worship:

1. Model hospitality As you’re meeting and greeting people, be sure to include children.
 
2. Be positive. Emphasize by words and actions the positive, important, happy things you have come to do together in worship.
 
3. Relax. Say “be quiet” or “be still” as infrequently as possible. Your fellow worshipers understand that children are learning how to worship.
 
4. Participate. Feel free to remain seated with your child and point out words of songs that we sing or words we read during services. Help your child locate and follow along with Bible verses that are read. Even non-readers can begin to learn these habits. Allow your child to give their own offering. Children ages 9 and up are welcome to begin serving as Acolytes.
 
5. Explain. Notice things that catch your child’s interest in worship. Look for symbols, colors and shapes in banners and alter cloths. Be aware of minimizing distractions for others, but take time to quietly talk about them. Explain the purpose of items in the worship bulletin. If you’re unsure about something, consider visiting with a person sitting near you about it. Comment on special events in worship such as baptism and other special days in the life of the church’s celebration.
 
6. Challenge your child to listen to the sermon and share with you after the service. A journal or drawing pad might help them to concentrate. Consider rewarding their thoughtful responses.
 
7. Be consistent. Make Sunday worship a regular part of the time you spend with your children.
