“The Lord’s Prayer”
For four weeks in August and September, we will take a closer look at the Lord’s Prayer. This short and simple prayer was given to us in two places in the Bible. In Matthew, it is a part of the Sermon on the Mount. In Luke, Jesus teaches his disciples this short and simple prayer after they ask him to “teach us how to pray.”
The Lord’s prayer is a simply prayer, including four requests to God.
August 23 – Make your name holy.
August 30 – Give us our bread for the day.
September 6 – Forgive us as we forgive others.
September 13 – Lead us on the right path.
Every Sunday at 9:30
We worship together every Sunday morning from 9:30-10:30. Immediately after worship, there is a time to share cookies and coffee in the cafe section of the sanctuary. There is a traditional feel to our worship, with an informal and welcoming atmosphere. That’s why we call it “Casual Traditional.”
There is nursery care provided every Sunday from 9:15-11:45 for kids that have not yet entered Kindergarten. Older kids remain in worship. There is a special cry room for babies and caregiver. There are activity bags available for kids as well.
The dress is varied. There might be a few people wearing ties, but there will also be some guys wearing t-shirts. Same thing with the ladies, for every dress and pumps, there is also a woman in jeans and a blouse.
Pastor Robb is an energetic preacher, who seldom remains behind the pulpit. Each week he also shares a short children’s moment. If your children feel comfortable, they are welcome to come forward. If you prefer, parents can accompany their little ones up to the front.
The choir is lively, and shares rousing anthems, melodic spirituals, and introspective responses. Our African choir has musical offerings about once a month, many of the songs they share have direct English translations in addition to the native language in which they are singing. It is a truly beautiful experience to hear some of the old favorite hymns sung in two different languages at once. Who knows, you may even learn a little Swahili.
There are two different kids choirs, which practice after worship during the Sunday school hour. Learn more about our music ministries here.
Our newly remodeled sanctuary includes a “Cafe Seating” section. These round tables, with coffee, water, and cookies nearby, offer a new way of experiencing worship. There are kids bulletins available. There is also a room adjacent to the sanctuary for parents with little ones that want a little more privacy. The room is furnished with a glider, a few activities for little ones, softer lighting, and a big window out to the worship space.
