Sunday morning worship is all about "coming as you are." We don't care if you come to worship wearing gym shorts or flip flops. You may want to wear the most elegant outfit you own—whatever makes you comfortable! We don't care if you haven't shaved in a week or if you have just come from your weekly hair appointment—whatever. Your fingernails will not be checked at the door. Come as you are and worship in a setting that is relaxed, accepting and joyful!
There is no worship bulletin telling you what comes next and when to stand or sit or kneel—you'll know what to do and when. There is no weekly offering taken up (just a plate on a pedestal in the middle of the aisle for those who wish to support the ministries of the church). There is no service ending altar call asking you to join the church. There is no hymnal—just guitars, drums, a keyboard and beautiful voices leading us in music with words and images projected on a screen. The preaching is biblically based and relevant to everyday life. The prayer time is personal but corporate and always meaningful. And then there's the Lord's Supper . . .
ABOUT THE LORD'S SUPPER . . .
We celebrate Communion every Sunday. In fact, we'll celebrate it just about any time we get together as the Body of Christ! And please remember: every person who embraces Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior—regardless of denomination, heritage, background, whatever—is invited to eat at the Lord's Table. Children, too, supported by a parent(s), are welcome to take part in this community meal.
Traditionally, we observe the supper using the custom of intinction. For those unfamiliar with this practice, it is done by breaking off a piece of the bread and dipping the bread into the cup, thereby eating the two elements (which are symbolic of the body and blood of Christ) simultaneously. We also make trays filled with the elements for those who wish to remain in their seats.
Don't worry, you'll know what to do and when—we promise!
