WORSHIP IS A HOME BASE FOR YOUR FAITH JOURNEY - COME FIND OUT WHY

 Get Directions

One way that we love God is through the ritual of worship. While worship doesn't have to happen on a Sunday morning in a church building, we gather together because it reminds us how important our faith is in our lives. Also, it's good to see our church family!

We know there are seasons in all our lives when we don't always feel like worshiping, or it seems like an impossible thing to 'add to the list.' But it's kind of like going to the gym, or making time for that walk: you may not want to go at first... but you never regret it in the end.

Worship is a key part of an active faith life, and we want you to join us. You are invited to come and see what we are talking about this Sunday!

Coming in Worship

Regular inside services, 9am (Traditional) and 11:15am (Praise) run from September 12 through Memorial Day. We are thrilled to be praising God together, with opportunities for education in the hour between.

Per Illinois regulations, if you are inside the building, all persons must wear a mask.

Please contact the Pastors if you have any questions.

Praise Band

Praise Band – “Messenger” praise band leads worship at our 11:15am service September – May, and is also present in every summer service as well. The band consists of several singers, drums, percussion, guitars, bass & keyboard, ranging in age from 15-71. (What other band in the world can say that?) But they are always eager to add new musicians, especially so that current musicians can rotate in and out of worship. The Band plays five songs in worship weekly, covering a wide range of classic hymns, contemporary Christian music, and inspirational songs from popular culture. For more information on how you can be involved contact Band Leader, Kurt Schweitz at kurtschweitz@gmail.com

Sound/AV

Sunday worship would be a lot harder without many "behind the scenes" helpers. At each indoor service we need an Audio/Visual volunteer to help with the worship PowerPoint slides. We are always in need of folk to create slides and/or help run the visual side of worship. We also need people to help operate the Sound Board - we can train you! We also record all of our services and share sermons and other worship pieces on Youtube.

Ushers & Greeters

Do you love to be a helping hand? Then we would love for you to serve God by being an usher! Our ushers typically volunteer once a month at one service by helping to seat people and share important information. We are so thankful for the ministry our ushers and greeters offer to our church family.

Flowers

Celebrate an event or remember someone special by sharing flowers with the congregation in the worship services. Sign up by calling the church office or contact Kenlyn Geraldi. You will receive one flower arrangement that is yours to take home following the services. Close to the date we will contact you for choice of colors or special requests. The typical cost is $30.
