Worship@First
Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.  Psalm 95:6
 
In worship we acknowledge that the Triune God is worthy of our reverence, praise, devotion, and dependence, because he is our Creator, our Redeemer, and our Sustainer. We view all of life as worship; but we also believe regular gatherings for worship are important for spiritual growth.
 
What can I expect in worship?
Length: Worship services usually last 60-75 minutes and include singing, praying, listening to God’s Word, and giving of gifts.
 
Preaching: Worship services include a message from the Bible, as we believe God’s truth to be the foundation of spiritual growth shaping our everyday living.
 
Music: We believe a variety of psalms, hymns, and spiritual praise songs have the ability to help us experience God’s presence, offer God praise, and encourage our daily walk with Jesus.
 
Participation: We seek intergenerational worship, encouraging all ages and abilities to participate in a variety of ways.
 
Visual Arts: As we journey each year through the life of Jesus, celebrating his birth at Christmas to remembering his death and resurrection at Easter, we often display colors and symbols that represent the different seasons of his life.
 
What should I wear?
We believe that God is more concerned with our hearts than how we look, so come dressed respectfully but also comfortably. Whether that’s a suit and tie, or jeans and a t-shirt, just bring yourself. We look forward to meeting you.
 
What about my kids?
Children are welcome in the worship services.
 
During the school year, we offer age-appropriate ministries during the services for those in first grade and under.  
 
For more information on these Sunday morning ministries, visit Nursery, Little Lambs or Children’s Worship.
 
Kids’ Busy Bags are available at the Nursery counter.
 
What happens after the service?
We want to continue to provide care for anyone with a need, burden, praise or thanksgiving so we invite you to pray with the prayer team at the front of the Worship Center.
 
We hope you’ll stay after services for coffee, cookies, and conversation in the lobby outside the Worship Center. We’re excited about getting to know you!
 
From September through April, Sunday School and Catechism classes are held during this time for students from Kindergarten through Grade 12.
