We welcome you to join us every Sunday at 10:45 a.m. in our historic worship center or online via YouTube. All are truly welcome.
Our worship service is flexible: we are always experimenting and tweaking as we strive to create space for each person to connect with the Spirit in their own way through scripture, reflection, prayer, music, and silence. For a detailed breakdown of a typical service, please see the Overview of Service section. There are shorter pews available for folks to sit with loved ones with wheelchairs or walkers.
The last Sunday of every month is Impact Sunday. We meet in the Social Hall of the Church and do or learn about a mission project in place of the Reflection and Sermon. In the past we have projects for Disaster Relief, Geauga Jobs and Family Services, and the Geauga Veterans Food Bank. Projects change every month so keep an eye out on our social media feeds and church newsletter to learn more.
Children in Worship
Children begin each service in the worship space and may choose to sit with their families or other children at our art table by the entrance. A the "Children's Moment" all children are welcome to come forward for a special sermon time. Kids (ages 5-12) are invited to go to Sunday School. Our Sunday School programming is offered from September through May each year. Nursery Care is also available after the Children's Moment for those 4 and under upon request. If children are uncomfortable separating they can stay seated with the family throughout the service.
The Pastor always looks for ways to make sermons relevant, interesting, and fun. Sermons always start off with setting a reading (typically a scripture passage) in its historical context, followed by reflection on how the lesson or situation then applies to life now. Open minds and quality thinking caps are suggested. Non-canonical or modern writings are used as a sermon starter. For recordings check out the Sermon page.
