Our Sunday worship services are usually led by Pastor Dave Hedgepeth. A praise team leads a variety of music, with an emphasis on gospel, folk, and traditional, but also including contemporary Christian. Near the beginning of each service is a “children’s sermon”. The worship is approximately 60 minutes.
“What is Worship like?”
All of our worship services at Community Christian Church have a number of similarities, including:
-the Lord’s Supper, or communion, celebrated weekly. We celebrate an “open table,” meaning that everyone is welcome to participate, including children.
-relevant, challenging preaching that starts with the Bible.
-time for prayer.
-an invitation to give a financial offering, with no pressure to give.
-an invitation to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, or recommit yourself to Him.
steady average growth – more and more people coming to each one.
“What is available for my children?”
We love having children in worship with us. Children’s noises in worship are a joy, and parents and guardians are sensitive enough that when their child is making too much noise, they take them to the children’s center where they may continue to listen to the service. One of our members normally passes out gift bags for the kids.
Nevertheless, we realize that it is better for many children and their parents and guardians to have other options. A Nursery is available at all worship services, for babies and preschool-aged children.
“How should I dress?”
Most people dress informally – even jeans or shorts – though some come in ties or dresses. We simply ask that you “come as you are,” and at the same time not call undue attention to yourself through your dress. During this time of the COVID pandemic we do require the wearing of Facemask while in the building. We come together to worship the living God, rather than get ourselves noticed.
“What should I expect as a visitor?”
You should expect a friendly welcome at the door. You are welcome to sit anywhere you wish, but we do ask that you choose a set of chairs appropriate to the size of your group, leave the larger groups of chairs for large families. The service begins about 10 minutes early with some music and then a “gathering” song. The pastors start on time (usually!), with a welcome, and then singing begins, and each worship service flows from there.
