Worship

We welcome you to join us every Sunday at 10:30 a.m.* in our historic worship center. All are truly welcome. 


* During the Coronavirus Crisis we are meeting virtually. Please see the statement on the home page, below the opening graphic, for details.


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.  


Impact Sunday

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 with their families. After a part of the worship service called "A Time for the Young at Heart," 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 Time for the Young at heart for those 4 and under. If children are uncomfortable separating they can stay seated with the family throughout the service. 

 

Choir

All ages are welcome to join in the choir which practices at 9:30am in the Sanctuary.

Sermons

The  Pastor always looks for ways to make sermons relevant, interesting, and  fun.  Sermons always start off with setting the 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. If you would like a sample please check out the Sermon Podcast page.
