Sunday Morning Worship
Sundays at 10 we gather to hear God's Word proclaimed and respond to him with thankful prayers and praise. We use traditional hymns, prayers, and responsive readings. The centerpiece of each week's service is a series of three Bible readings which we explain and apply to life today.
Our Current Worship Theme
Through September and October our worship scripture readings will focus on the origins of human life and what they say about life today. We will talk through the first twelve chapters of the Bible. This section of scripture is the foundation for everything else we know about God. It answers the most basic questions we have such as "Who am I," "Why am I here," and "Why is the world the way it is?" My friend and seminary classmate Ben Sadler is preaching a similar series at his church. You can watch his sermons online. We are not coordinating our sermon content, but we did coordinate the basic outline of the series. It might be fun to hear the St. Matthew sermon and then later watch his.
How to dress.
We will often have a few people wearing a suit and tie while others wear shorts and tee shirts. It really does not matter. Dressing up is a way of reminding us that God is dignified, while dressing down reminds us that he sees and welcomes us all as we are. No outward clothing makes us more worthy in God's sight, although it is best not to wear anything provocative or potentially offensive for the sake of other people.
Interested but nervous?
Sometimes entering a new church for the first time can be intimidating. We try to mitigate that as much as possible. Visitors are not asked to introduce themselves or anything like that, but some people will probably say hello individually. If a Sunday morning worship service seems too intimidating, you can also schedule a private visit with the pastor at a coffee shop or something like that, or you can attend a Bible study with a smaller group of people.
