About the 9:00 am Traditional Service Experience
The Sermons: Sermons often find their starting points in familiar and modern-day places–rock ‘n roll lyrics, movies, parenting, work and home. They are themed with several sermons branching out from a single an over-arching topic. “Parents Say the Darndest Things” is an example of one recent sermon series. The sermons are contemporary. They will make you smile; they can bring a tear to your eye; yet they never lose sight of the eternal search for what it means to be a disciple of Christ in an ever-changing world.
The Music: Our worship experience contains a variety of musical styles and music–from familiar Methodist hymns to heart-pumping American spirituals. The music is anchored by the Centennial Organ and the Chancel Choir. But variety spices the experience with congregational singing, Bells, Youth & Children’s Choirs, periodic offerings by soloists and vocal and instrumental ensembles.
The Children’s Message: For five or so minutes, the children come down from the pews to sit on the alter steps with a pastor or teacher and discuss what it means to follow Jesus. The children are never too young to learn, and you are never too old to learn from the children.
You can view our previous sermons, musical pieces and announcement videos on YouTube! Check out our YouTube channel here.
Children are always welcome in our worship services, but for those who desire it, free nursery care is available Sundays from 8:45 am–12:00 pm (infants to age 4) in the nursery.
