What To Expect

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

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

We meet Sunday mornings at 9:30.

What We Do 

We worship God through singing, sharing our lives, sharing in communion, and gospel-centered preaching. 

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 service and our sermons. Our preaching is also primarily exegetical, meaning each sermon series follows one book of the Bible from beginning to end. Before the sermon, there's a transition time when children in grades 1-6 go downstairs to their Sunday school Discovery classes.

Listen to a sermon.

WORSHIP THROUGH SINGING

We have a blended worship style, meaning we sing both contemporary 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. Some weeks we here from one of our missionaries, welcome new members, or dedicate babies. During our open share time, 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.

WORSHIP THROUGH COMMUNION

Each week 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 baptized believers in Jesus 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. Grab a cup of coffee before the service or during the transition before the sermon. And don't be surprised if you find yourself hanging around after the service is over - we'll talk, pray, 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. 

At the transition before the sermon, children in grades 1-6 can go downstairs to 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.
