We invite you to worship with us each and every Sunday morning at 10:30am.
Hindsight is 20/20 - Winter Sermon SeriesBegins January 12
You've likely heard the phrase "Hindsight is always 20/20." The saying means that it is always easier to see the right decisions after the fact than it was at the time. In other words, you can always see clearly when the choice isn't right in front of you. There is some truth to the saying, but it doesn't offer much hope for the future. Jesus teaches and refers back to many Old Testament passages in the New Testament. He offers a hindsight that helps us understand God's words of the past, but in a way that gives us foresight about Jesus and hope for the many future decisions of our lives in 2020.
All children from preschool through 6th grade are invited to attend Junior Church. The goal of our Junior Church program to teach children about worship at an age friendly level. Partway through our 10:30am worship service the children will be invited to join a child-centered program in the Fellowship Hall. Volunteers will lead the children through a worship service, which will included singing praises and hymns to God, the reading and teaching of scripture, and prayer. We are excited to exalt the living God with our children.
The Sacrament of Holy Communion will be celebrated during worship on the following Sundays in 2020: February 2, March 1, April 5, May 3, June 7, August 2, October 4 (World Communion Sunday), and November 22.
A Typical Service
We meet together to praise and worship the one true God. Pastor Patrick uses a sermon series format to bring about a deeper understanding of a biblical concept or book of the Bible. Our services have traditional elements including hymns accompanied by both organ and piano. Some services also include contemporary arrangements and special music presented by the Mountville choir, small groups, or soloists.
Our services include families with small children as well as those old enough to be grandparents and great grandparents. We believe that children are a sign that the church is growing, so we would rather have noisy children than no children at all. However, there is a play area downstairs for when it is needed. Some people come to worship wearing jeans and t-shirts, and others come wearing dresses or suits. All are welcome.
There is a ramp as well as stairs to access the main door. In the sanctuary, there are large monitors on the front wall to display the order of service, song lyrics, scripture, announcements, etc. as well as a printed paper bulletin. The sound system has recently been upgraded. On the sanctuary level, there is a handicap accessible restroom.
