We love visitors! During the school year, we have two worship services on Sunday mornings and visitors are very welcome at both. Here’s a few things to keep in mind if you’d like to visit:
Some people like a contemporary service with a band and an opportunity to worship God with modern music and to share what God is doing with each other. Other people prefer a more traditional service that uses hymns and follows the standard liturgy more closely. At Cross and Resurrection we have both! Feel free to visit whichever style of service you prefer. Here’s a little more information about each:
This service follows an historic order of service referred to as “The Divine Service.” This “Liturgy” has been passed down through the centuries in the Christian Church. It begins with a confession and absolution, followed by readings from the Old Testament, New Testament and Holy Gospel. We have a Sermon on the Word and then continue with one of the historic Creeds of the Church, usually the Nicene Creed. We join with the church around the world in Praying for the Church, Government, University, People in Need, and anything else on our hearts. We then continue with the "Eucharist" or "Great Thanksgiving" in which we receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion or the Lord's Supper. We rejoice in wonderful ancient and modern hymns and enjoy offering this Service at 8:30am each Sunday from Sept-May. It lasts about an hour. Please join us for an Ancient -Modern experience of Worship!
This service begins with a time of worship, prayer, praise, and prophecy. Then we read the Holy Gospel together, ask forgiveness for our sins, and invite confessing Christians to participate in the Lord’s supper (others can put a hand over their heart and receive a blessing). During the sermon, children are invited to a Children’s Time with special activities just for them. This service lasts about 90 minutes. If you’re looking for a spirit-filled, contemporary worship service, the Living Praise service is the one for you!
