Worship Times sunday morning

trad-header

9:00am Classic Praise

At 9am we offer a more traditional, liturgical style of worship called “Classic Praise”  For those who enjoy the rhythm of the liturgy this may be the style of worship for you.   While the form is traditional, the accompaniment is often anything but, often using a lively ensemble of musicians and a variety of settings.  The first Sunday of the month utilizes the organ.

11:10am Journey

At 11:10*am the style is non-traditional…alternative…contemporary…hard to explain.  Come be a part of the “Journey” If you have not had any church experience, don’t have any idea what a liturgy is or just prefer a more relaxed setting, this may be the style of worship for you.   There are no hymnbooks or liturgies to learn…everything you will need to participate will be up on the screen.   Our awesome band consists of acoustic and electric guitarists and a cool drummer named Phil.  Children (even noisy ones) are welcome in worship and there is a family room in our main gathering space as well.

 


Both services include a children’s message for our younger participants.   Pastor Matt is aware that his microphone will be cut off after 18 minutes of preaching.   He often uses slides on the screen and has an outline in the bulletin for us to doodle on…uh…take notes in.

communionAnytime there is a 5th Sunday in a month we enjoy gathering together as one worshipping community at 10am.  While many have time or stylistic preferences in worship, we’ve found it valuable to gather the entire tribe together.   We often have a meal after this service.   Be sure to check our calendar here.

We also have special mid-week service (Wednesdays at 7pm) before we celebrate big events in the life of Jesus, specifically his birth and his resurrection.  Advent is a Spring Training like time of preparation for Christmas.   We feel like it’s important to gather in the middle of the week during this crazy-busy time of the year to center ourselves on what’s most important.

Lent is the time before Easter when we focus on all that Jesus has done for us, specifically how self-sacrificial he was (understatement of this website…he died for us!).   Mid-week Lenten services help us focus on that last week of Jesus’ life.  25% of the biographies of Jesus’ life focus on this week, so we think it’s a good idea to have a special services that help us remember all that Jesus has done for us.

Of course we gather at other important times of tchristmas-evehe year as well, with worship on Thanksgiving Day (9am), Maundy Thursday (7pm) and Good Friday (1pm) to name a few.   We also gather at Stinson Beach the Saturday after Labor Day for a huge, day long bash that ends with worship on the beach.   We find it hard to listen to Pastor staring out at the sun setting over the ocean…


*Why 11:10am?   Luke 11:10 says “For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks the door will be opened.”   We love seeing God open doors for those who are seeking and asking.   Come join us on The Journey!
