Our church holds a public worship service each Sunday at 11am, which typically lasts for about one hour and fifteen minutes. Below is an overview of a typical service:
People start to arrive 15 minutes before the service. Someone will greet you at one of the doors and answer any questions you may have. We also offer coffee and hot chocolate in our main auditorium.
At 11am we start our service with a brief welcome and announcements, followed by worship songs, led by a modern worship band (keyboard, guitar, drums, etc...). Most of the songs are modern worship songs, while some are classic hymns. The words are projected on a screen at the front and everyone is invited to sing along, though it is not required.
After a few songs, we have a time where children are called to the front and hear a short talk from our children's director. The children then go downstairs with children's teachers for "Wave Kids," a fun program for kids JK to Grade 6. Parents with younger children are welcome to keep them in the service where they can still listen to the service and be with their children or parents can make use of our children's rooms (infants nursery at the back of the sanctuary and toddlers/preschoolers in the transformed office downstairs).
Following our children's time, our worship team leads us in one or two more songs.
Then our pastor brings a message from the Bible, which typically lasts 30-40min. The teaching style is contemporary and conversational, presented in language that is understandable. The message speaks to the mind, to the heart and to the soul, aiming to both challenge and encourage listeners.
The message is usually followed by music, an offering time and a closing song. Please note that giving in the offering is voluntary, and our guests should feel no pressure to do so.
Following the service we welcome everyone to a casual time of light refreshments and conversations in the Fellowship Hall downstairs, where you can meet the pastor and other people attending the service.
