What to Expect in Worship
You will be greeted at the front door, then you will enter the Community Life Center. You will probably be greeted again, either by the pastor or an usher. Hang your coat in the coat rack, then get a nametag, available for all, whether this is your first visit or you’ve been here hundreds of times. Coffee and water are on a cart, and you are welcome to take beverages into the worship space.
The usher will give offer you a bulletin packet, which includes a Communication Card, Devotion and special announcements.
Children are welcome to be with their parents throughout worship, or they may go to Sunday Circles after the second song, or after Communion on Communion Sunday. Denton Nissley, Director of Youth and Children’s Ministry, or Sherri Varsho, Childcare Coordinator, will lead the way. Children age 3 and under may be in the nursery with Sherri Varsho.
The worship service starts at 10:30am, lasts approximately one hour. Song lyrics, Scripture readings, and other items are on the overhead screen. Pastor Paul Moore and Music Director Jan Boehm lead worship. The Praise Team leads the congregation in a mix of contemporary and traditional songs. Please be sure to fill out the Communication Card and put it in the offering basket.
After worship everyone is welcome to stay a while, have a cup of coffee, and just visit if you wish. Your presence is appreciated.
June 26 “Invite a friend Sunday.” Everyone is asked to invite a friend to worship. Who can you introduce to this beautiful new space? Please pray every day for opportunities to invite someone to worship on that day. Pastor Paul will begin a summer sermon series called, “Advice from Jesus.” The topic will be “How to be my authentic self without stepping on other people’s toes.” Many special activities are planned.
July 3 Pastor Howard Dotson will lead worship. He has been very involved with relief efforts to Ukraine and was recently in a picture on the front page of the Star Tribune.
July 10 Celebrate Christmas in July! Pastor Paul will preach about the perils of having a Santa Claus faith. Many special activities will be celebrated.
Because of the move of equipment from Davenport to our new worship space no live-online worship will be offered on May 15, 22, & 29. People can worship online by engaging the worship video at vimeo.com/chainoflakes. That video is posted shortly after worship is over on Sunday.
