“Experience” God at the 8:45 Contemporary Service!
For our “Experience” service, we’ve created a warm, comfortable setting. We use visuals that include still and moving images and stage lighting to help us get in the mood and “on message” for what God’s Word will say to us. Our Praise Team leads us in worship through music and lyrics that lift up the theme for the day. While their mission is to offer their best for the Lord, they seek to lead worship in a way that lifts up the Lord and not themselves. Our Pastor, Rev. Grotheer, seeks to bring biblically based messages and his desire is that people will leave remembering not his words so much as God speaking to their hearts.
Traditional and Sacred – 11:00 Service
In our traditional service, we approach tradition not as a formality, but as a way to bring the worshiper into a sacred drama. On the one hand, we draw from the rich symbols and music of the Christian seasons (Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Holy Week, Easter, and Pentecost). On the other hand, our use of tradition does not make it hard for the worshiper to follow along. In other words, our worship services are “user friendly.” We believe that tradition should be taught, and not assume everyone knows what to do and knows what everything means.
