WORSHIP

Worship is a time to experience and respond to God.  We embrace the fact that people connect to God through all kinds of ways and are united by our desire to have our lives changed inside and out.

 

 

 

 

Weekend Worship

ONLINE WORSHIP

Sundays, 8:00 AM/9:30 AM/11:00 AM 

 

Worshipping online is a great way to stay connected in this time of social distancing. Every Sunday at 8:00 AM, 9:30 AM, and 11:00 AM, we premiere the same video with elements of singing traditional hymns and modern songs, Scripture-reading, prayer, and a Biblically-based sermon.

When you log onto the website, there will be a chatbox to the right of the video. We invite you to write in your name in the chatbox so you can interact with other congregants. You’ll see an online host greeting folks and providing helpful links throughout the service for things like the connection card, upcoming events, and giving.

HOUSE WORSHIP

 

 

We encourage those who are comfortable doing so to worship in homes and to follow government guidelines related to social distancing and wearing masks. It is our way we can be sent out into our communities and invite family, friends, neighbors, and folks who aren’t connected to a church to worship. If you worship with a group in your home, please list the names of people worshiping on the Connection Card so that we can know who is staying connected to First Church.

Each house may choose to do worship differently, according to the context of their group. Some enjoy watching the entire worship video online. Some may watch just the sermon and have questions to discuss. And some may change it up from week-to-week.

Baptism, Wedding, Funeral Services

BAPTISM

In baptism, we reject the power of sin and begin our journey as disciples of Jesus Christ, transformed by the waters of baptism. We are cleansed of our sin and born into a new way of living. Whether an infant or adult, this is just the beginning.

If you are considering baptism as your next step, or are considering it for your child, we would love to walk with you in this process.

WEDDING

Congratulations on your engagement! We believe that the engagement period should be a time to focus on preparing for your life together, not for your wedding day alone. We believe that there is a sacred element to marriage because it is a means by which God’s grace and blessings come to us. 

FUNERAL

To come into a relationship with God in Christ is to “pass from death to life”. For this reason, when a Christian physically dies, he or she passes from an earthly relationship with God to a complete one.

When a relative nears death or dies, regardless if he or she is a church member, contact one of your pastors so that they might be present to offer prayers and comfort. Church friends, small group members, and neighbors also stand ready to help at this time.
