Worship at New Covenant 8:15am/10:50am
The Church has been freed for worship by God Himself, and He is the point of worship. The Church gathers weekly to worship Jesus, the Light of the World. He is the One who came into our mess to deliver us from our sins.
Through both of our services we are seeking to enter the dialog between God and His people as we gather for worship.
We have two regularly scheduled worship services every Sunday.
8:15a The Traditional service is a very personal and friendly time for worship. Several classic church hymns are sung. While there is no choir or worship band during this service there is plenty of singing and piano music.
10:50a The Blended service is a mix of both hymns and contemporary style worship music performed with New Covenant's live worship band, Acts of Worship. During the months of September through the end of May, our Adult Choir sings weekly.
In an effort to worship God (and not merely our preferences) we use music from all periods of Christian worship. We have a regular printed order of worship, yet we are not afraid to change our service as the Spirit of God leads.
We have time at every service to greet one another, hear the prayer concerns of the people, and share information relevant to the life of the congregation.
What should I wear?
Some of our men wear jackets and ties. Some of our people wear t-shirts & jeans. Some wear collared shirts. Some of our ladies wear dresses, skirts, pants, or jeans.
What about my kids?
Your children are welcome to stay with you during gathered worship--they are welcome!
We also have a Children's Church that is dismissed after the participating in the Blended service.
What is the sermon like?
Our typical practice is to preach through individual books of the Bible (or large sections of books). That's not to say that we don't ever preach topically. The sermon is the same for both services. We use a projector, although having graphics isn't the main point--seeing how God has loved us in Christ is. Chris is shooting to have his sermons be between 22-30 mins--otherwise, he falls asleep himself.
