Livestream will continue here! Digital Giving is still available here.
We are located at 916 Western Avenue, in the big A framed church. The parking lot is in the back. The entrance for the parking lot is off Daytona Ave. The bus stop is right in front of the church’s red doors.
10am (9:30 in July & August) Worship is available in person, Livestreamed on Facebook.
You can enter through either of the double doors in the parking lot, or the big red wooden front doors. If you enter through the parking lot doors you go towards the A-frame to find the sanctuary. The door leads right by the pulpit, which can feel awkward, but we are all used to it and I promise that do not mind if you enter or have to go the bathroom or the like during worship.
Bathrooms are on the other end of the building, there is a handicapped bathroom available. Additionally there is handicapped parking at the front of the church. There are designated spots plus a white driveway (it looks like a sidewalk) that lead directly to the wooden cross front doors, you can park right on that driveway if you need to be close.
Usually bulletins are on the table just outside the sanctuary doors, and on a lectern just inside the double doors if you enter by the “Front wooden doors”
Worship is traditional but not stuffy. We do some prayers that we read or respond to together, sing 2-3 hymns (with all the verses) along with our wonderful professionally trained organist Roger Held.
We have a moment for children to hear the story in the front if they feel comfortable coming forward and they are free to stay for worship.
Then there is the Biblical Readings, the sermon, and communion 1x a month as well as communion. You can give in person or digitally here.
The three movements of worship are
Preparing for the Word of God
Call to Worship:responsive Prayer, hymn, Confession: confess our imperfections and look towards doing better, and Assurance of Pardon: God promises to always love us accept us even when we make mistakes
Listening to the Word of God
Children’s Time: hearing God’s Story, Occasional Baptism, Bible Reading Sermon
Responding to the Word of God
Reflection Music, Praying Joys & Concerns: Share prayers you want to be prayed with the entire congregation or contemplate them quietly, Communion: responsive prayers, blessing of the elements and consuming the bread and the cup, Offering: Giving our tithes and Gifts to God, Prayer of Dedication: Prayer as we Re-enter the world, Hymn, Benediction: A Blessing to take into the world, Passing of the Peace (Pass God’s peace to greet one another verbally)
