On Sunday morning you'll find real gospel life happening in our church building. Gospel-driven preaching, faith, community, outreach, and worship all come together as local members of Christ's church gather to worship Him, to encourage and connect with one another, and to hear from God's Word.
When We Meet
NOTE: In the summer, we have one service starting at 8:30. There will be a short break at 9:30, before the sermon. We hope to see you there!
We have a unique service format. There are two services, starting at 8:30 and at 9:45. Each service includes singing, sharing, communion, and preaching. The services overlap during the preaching of the Word.
Here's how it works:
First Service 8:30-10:45am
8:30 Worship through Singing, Sharing and Communion
9:30 Coffee break
9:45 Worship through the Word
Second Service 9:45am-12:00pm
9:45 Worship through the Word
10:45 Coffee break
11:00 Worship through Singing, Sharing and Communion
What We Do
We worship God through gospel-centered preaching, singing, sharing.
Worship Through the Preached Word
The gospel of Jesus Christ is the focal point of all scripture, and so it is the focal point of all our preaching. Our preaching is also primarily exegetical, meaning our sermon series follows one book of the Bible from beginning to end. Before the sermon, children in grades 1-6 are dismissed to their Sunday school Discovery classes.
Listen to a sermon.
WORSHIP THROUGH SINGING
We have a blended worship style, which means we sing both contemporary praise songs and traditional hymns. What all our music has in common is that it is gospel centered, proclaiming the glories of the crucified and risen Savior. For more on music at CMC, click here.
WORSHIP THROUGH SHARING
The share time is a unique expression of real gospel community here at CMC. As part of our worship service each week we listen to, learn from and pray for one another. Someone may share a prayer request, an answered prayer, or encouragement from God’s word. Everyone is invited to share, but no one is required to share.
During this time we also share in the Lord’s Table, or communion. We eat and drink the symbolic bread and wine (juice) to remember Christ’s sacrifice for our sins. We invite all those present who are members of the body of Christ to participate with us.
When You Arrive
You’ll be welcomed by one of our greeters and receive a bulletin that outlines the morning service and the activities for the week. When you hear the organ play, the service is about to start. And don't be surprised if you find yourself hanging around after the service is over - we love to talk, pray, catch up with, laugh, and even cry with one another.
What About My Children
On Sundays the lower level of our building is alive with children. Throughout the service, infants are lovingly cared for, played with, sung to, rocked and read to. For toddlers and preschoolers, there's also an age-appropriate Bible lesson and time to release some energy in our gym.
During the Sermon Hour, children in grades 1-6 are in Discovery classes. Their lessons follow the same book of the Bible as the sermon, but teaching is geared for each age group. And for nursing moms, the Cry Room at the front end of the lower hallway receives a live feed of the service.
