We’re glad you’re considering joining us for worship. Here are answers to a few questions you may have. If you have any questions that are not answered here, please contact us. We want you to feel as comfortable and as welcomed as possible when you visit us for the first time.
Sundays 10:30 A.M.
“We are Disciples of Christ, a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world. As part of the one body of Christ, we welcome all to the Lord’s Table as God has welcomed us.”
-Disciples Identity Statement,
Philosophy: Disciples center our worship around the Communion table. At the table we share bread and grape juice as symbols of Jesus’ sacrifice for us and his life lived for others that we seek to model our lives after.
Attire: You can’t do anything “wrong” during worship here! Some people dress in shorts or jeans and others in a coat and tie or dress. Do whatever is comfortable for you.
Practice: We pray together, sing hymns from hymnals, listen to special music from our choir or other musicians, hear a sermon and share the Lord’s Supper every week. On most Sundays, deacons pass out the bread and juice and we take communion together in our pews. On some special occasions, we will come forward to receive a piece of bread and dip it in a single cup — your bulletin will let you know which form communion will take. You are welcome to share in this ritual if you would like. And no one will look at you funny if you don’t want to!
Identity: No matter your background or identity you are welcome at our church and at the Lord’s Table!
In Worship: Children of all ages are welcome in worship as long and as often as they and their parents would like. In most services where children are present our pastor or another adult will invite the children up front for a special Children’s Message. Matthew 19:14
Nursery: Babies, toddlers, and preschoolers may begin the service in the nursery if they are more comfortable there.
Children’s Church: Children in 3rd grade and younger may leave the regular worship service at the point marked in the bulletin (usually after the Children’s Message). A teacher will direct children to their activities and stay with them until parents pick them up after the service.
While our address is on Bryant drive, entrances to our parking lot are on 6th Avenue and 11th 1/2 Street. The lot is behind the church.
