Traditional Church Worship Services

Traditional Worship ServiceThe traditional worship service is held each Sunday morning, year around, at 10:15. There are also extra services at Christmas and Easter.

When you arrive on a Sunday morning, you will find that we “Welcome In”; there is easy access for the handicapped, one or two of the congregation welcome you at the door and the ushers give you a church Bulletin containing the order of service and various news announcements. The ushers also have available large print music for the visually impaired. You are in a building that is light, airy and peaceful - an oasis of calm.

The service itself begins with a Prelude on the organ and a welcome to worship, and usually lasts for about an hour. Early in the service, the children of the congregation are invited to the front of the church to hear a story, related to the sermon topic and the readings for that Sunday. Then we sing a children's song and the younger ones may leave to go to Kids’ Church downstairs. The older children often stay upstairs and help with Bible readings and the taking of the offering. During the rest of the service, we have more hymns, readings and prayers and our minister’s (the Rev. Paul Evans) sermon for the day. The hymns, readings and sermon are all reflections on the same topic. An offering is taken and dedicated to God's work. At the end of the service we have a benediction, a chorale amen, and an organ postlude (during which many in the congregation remain seated).
After the service most people stop for a coffee (and sometimes cookies or cake) and a chance to visit with the rest of the congregation. Every second week, the choir sings a special anthem, in addition to leading the singing of all the hymns, and approximately every four to six weeks we have Communion during the second half of the service.
