Sayings of the Savior from the Cross
Lenten Sermon Series
Some of the most memorable truths come from people at the end of their life. There is much that can be learned at these critical times. Jesus Christ shared some of the most profound truths ever spoken as His life neared an end on the cross. The crucifixion was a crucial moment in God's work of salvation. The words Jesus spoke reveal the character of The Christ and the reality of His ministry in people's lives. His words summarized His life and the eternal impact and hope it offers to each one of us.

(Junior Church is not meeting at this time.)
Before the sermon, all children from preschool through 6th grade are invited to go downstairs for Junior Church - a worship experience at their age level.
The kid friendy worship includes starter questions & prayer requests, songs, scripture in child friendly words, and an activity to help understand that scripture passage. With a snack in hand, they talk about the scripture and what it tells them about God. An offering is collected, and the kids have a time of prayer. They close with a memory verse.
Throughout Junior Church, the kids have the chance to learn about the different elements of a worship service and understand how we are able to worship God in a variety of ways.
The Sacrament of Holy Communion will be celebrated during worship on the following Sundays in 2021: January 10, February 7, March 7, April 4 (Easter), May 2, June 6, August 1, October 3 (World Communion Sunday), and November 7, and December 5.
We acknowledge that we are all joined together in Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit, so we invite those attending online worship services to celebrate communion with us. You may find more information about how to prepare and when to partake by clicking HERE.
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.
