Here are some questions you may have about a Sunday morning experience. If your question is not answered here, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Sundays: 10:30 am
During the summer months ( from Memorial Day - Labor Day) we are encouraging families to worship together. During the summer months we are outside at our Chapel in the Pines most Sundays (we will be inside on June 7th and July 5th and any Sunday it rains). Being with your kids is a wonderful way to spend time as a family. Feel free to get up and move around as necessary. And if your kids start to make noise, it's ok.
Worship typically ends at about 11:30. Sometimes we go a little longer. Afterwards we have a casual time to hang out and enjoy some cookies and coffee. (In light of the pandemic, we are not currently having coffee and cookies).
Come dressed however you feel comfortable - God will be here no matter what.
Come as casual or dressed up as you care, from blue jeans and flip flops to a dress or coat and tie. You will see people wearing a wide range of attire. And if you want to wear your State sweatshirt or U of M, both are welcome.
There are many things that you will see every Sunday - worship through music, worship through giving, prayer, reading of the Bible and a teaching based on the Bible. We also practice communion or The Lord's Supper on the first Sunday of the month. There might also be times of people sharing what God is doing in their life.
First, we believe that you came our way because of God and it was not an accident. We have prayed that that God would bring you our way, even if we didn't know you before.
Second, part of our service is when people give their offerings, as a way of practicing and living out their faith. It is not “required” of anyone to give.
Worship is more about attitude and what is going on in our hearts than what we do with our bodies. That being said, we want to encourage you to worship as you feel comfortable and led by God's Spirit. That may mean raising your hands, kneeling, clapping, or even dancing. What God is seeking and we encourage is for your worship to be genuine.
What is the music like? top
Describing music is always difficult because we all have different ideas of what words mean. So, while some may describe our music as "contemporary" others might say it's not. So, rather than try and label it, here is a little bit about our music:
