9:00 & 10:45 am
Our Sunday morning gatherings are the highlight of our week. It's during these gatherings where we see the church worshiping God, being built up and encouraged, as well as seeing the work of the Holy Spirit manifested in the lives of the people here. We are a multigenerational church - so it's not uncommon to find children and youth worshiping with their parents - in fact, we encourage it! Our Sunday morning attendance is around 350 - 450 people. Dress trends are more casual, though you can find anything from jeans to suits.
The music we sing at Christ Community is a mix of traditional and contemporary. Most Sundays we use a full band (guitars, bass, drums, etc.), but we also involve our Celebration Choir and other music groups throughout the year. We love the rich hymns of the past and we also find blessing and encouragement in the choruses of today. We choose songs that lead our people to see the greatness of their God, to declare their need for His grace, and to praise the name of Jesus for what He has done for us in saving them and giving them hope. More than anything, we desire and encourage congregational singing. You will also find that we often intentionally include in our services times of reading scripture, prayer, or reflections that are done corporately. We also recognize and give glory to God as we practice the ordinances God has called us to do with communion and baptism. We remember the Lord's Supper almost every first Sunday of the month and baptisms at various times throughout the year.
Preaching at Christ Community is generally expositional, meaning that it seeks to declare the point of a particular Biblical passage. Sermons usually last around forty minutes and are packed with material to reflect on and application for our lives. Our sermon series often alternate between the Old and New Testaments. All preaching is driven by the Gospel, the Bible’s main message of God saving sinners through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Adult Sunday Classes
We have adult Sunday classes during both service, 9 & 10:45 am in Room 109. These classes give in depth study into God's word, topical studies, and book studies.
After our sermons, we often sing a song that captures the theme of the service. Our first service finishes around 10:15 am, and our second service around noon. We provide light refreshments in our Palm Court in between services.
Since Sunday mornings are the largest ministry of the church, it requires the most need for people to serve. From serving in the music ministry to teaching our toddlers about the greatness of God, or from serving as a greeter or an usher to helping out with refreshments, there is an abundance of opportunities for our church body to build up and love one another for the glory of God. Our desire is that we wouldn’t be a consumer culture, but a culture that finds its joy in being active members in the church body.
