When We Meet
10:30 a.m. is when we all begin to gather together for a time of worship. We try to be intentional by taking the first 15 minutes to connect with one another and settle in (coffee, water and donuts are usually available in the fellowship hall). Service begins at 10:45 a.m. After a few announcements and an update on our daily Bible reading, our worship team leads us in celebration of our Lord with music that connects our hearts to His. After the musical time of worship, the children who wish to go are dismissed for children’s church (except the second Sunday of the month where all stay in). The adults then spend time in “open worship” where we all focus our hearts on Jesus and allow God to work in our lives through prayer and sharing. This time of “open worship” is pretty unique to Friends. We simply believe that God speaks to each and can speak through each person. His leading and guiding are not limited to just one person or group. After open worship, we listen to a message from the Bible given by Pastor Chris or another preacher/teacher.
On the second Sunday of every month, we stay after the service and share in a potluck dinner together. Many people bring different dishes and desserts and we sing happy birthday to those who have a birthday in that month and enjoy a great time of food and fellowship. There’s always plenty of food, so please stay and fellowship with us whether you’ve brought a dish or not.
Prayer Meeting 10 a.m. at the church. All submitted prayer requests are distributed and prayed for by a team of committed followers who seek to bring all concerns before the Lord in prayer.
