Worship

cross outside chapelWorship is how we honor our God. It’s a manifestation of our submission to Him and to His will. Worshipful expression may take the form of praising God, professing our faith in Him, testifying of His work in our lives, showing gratefulness for all He has done for us, sacrificially serving others, proclaiming His truth, and submitting to His will.  Worshipful people are humble before the one and only omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent God; they subordinate their personal goals to God’s; they tell others about God, His truths, and the love they enjoy as a child of God.  Sunday worship includes teaching about God and His ways, encouraging faith in Him,  and acknowledging our dependence on Him for all that we need.

Join us each week in worshiping our God! The Sunday morning traditional worship service is held at the historic Kiowa Chapel at 9:00 a.m. (The 107-year-old bell is still rung before each service.)

The service usually lasts for about 90 minutes. Following is the general format: Welcome and Announcements – Call to Worship – Hymn #1 – Prayer of Praise and Confession – Offering – Choir – Prayers of the People – The Lord’s Prayer – Hear Our Prayer, O Lord  – Hymn #2 – Sermon – Benediction.

Special worship services occur around the holidays and are announced in advance.

Communion

Holy Communion is held near the end of the worship service on the first Sunday of each month. All who have prepared their hearts to receive communion are invited to participate.

“Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.” (1 Co 11:27 AV)

Sunday School

While some thoughtful members of our congregation usually provide for the care of a few small children during the Sunday morning worship service, at present, there is no formal Sunday school. (However, the church does sponsor a fun time of Biblical learning for youngsters, called the Monday Afternoon Club. Read more about  it on the “Service” page.)

Prayer

Members of the church congregation have formed a prayer chain which is committed to praying for you or for others in your life. If you have a prayer request, please call the church office to put our prayers to work for you.
