Worship at First Church
What to Wear: Feel free to wear whatever you're comfortable in.
What to Expect: We use the Lectionary cycle of scripture readings as our guide for Sunday mornings which take us through the church year and help us to better explore all the breadth and beauty of the Bible's wisdom and teaching in the context of where we are right now. Worship lasts around an hour but does occasionally run longer. We hope you don't mind. One of the things we've learned is that you can't rush worship and there are occasions when time isn't so important. Worship is one of those times! We also take time every Sunday morning for fellowship. It's a great time to get to know new friends and to catch up with old friends.
For Children: Nursery Care is provided every Sunday morning for infants through age 5. At the same time, children are always welcome in worship! We offer a special time for children every Sunday morning and as Pastor Mark occasionally reminds us, 'he'd much rather hear the crying of a baby than the snoring of a saint...'
Sunday 8:30am Worship in our Sanctuary: Our Sunday morning 8:30 worship here at First Church is perhaps best described as casual traditional. This worship time is in the sanctuary with music ranging from the old favorites to the newer contemporary hymns along with the great spirituals and gospel favorites.
Sunday 10:45am Worship in our Fellowship Hall: Our Sunday morning 10:45 worship is a contemporary worship in a casual setting. During worship we sit at tables and worship in 'the round.' Plus an added bonus is that snacks and beverages are not only welcome but encouraged in our worship space.
Saturday 5:30pm Worship in our John Wesley Room: Our Saturday 5:30 pm worship is the most intimate of our worship settings. Ben Morris our Saturday worship leader describes it as three songs and a sermon, but it is much more and provides a great alternative to those who have to work or other obligations on Sunday mornings.
