WORSHIP

Sunday Service at 10:00 a.m.

 

Join us for Connecting Time at 9:00: 

Fellowship, coffee, and classes for adults.


Our congregation shares the life and love of Christ when we

CELEBRATE, CONNECT, AND CARE. 


Our Mission is

Celebrating Jesus by connecting with and caring for all people.


Pastor Bill Sperry's sermons are intelligent, personal, Biblically based, and laced with humor. We worship and honor God in a style that is casual, but with respect for  tradition.  We hear the Word in terms that apply to our daily lives, praise God in song, and pray together and for each other.   Our community prayer time is very special as we openly voice our joys and concerns so that we may pray for each other in our worship setting.

Communion & Gathering Sunday

Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month.  

All those who put their trust in Jesus Christ are invited to participate in Communion

along with children who have been instructed in the meaning of the Sacrament. 

Lunch together is shared after the service.

We invite everyone to enjoy this time of breaking bread together.

Follow Jesus' Example

Our services should inspire worshipers to follow Jesus’ example by introducing the gospel message to our community and the world through the way we live and serve.  


We support regular participation in worship and we encourage our congregation to be involved in activities that help them grow in faith and spiritual maturity and service to the congregation or the community.   


Our Sunday morning service is both a blend of the contemporary and traditional, mixing modern praise and worship music with cherished and time-honored hymns. 

Special Services

We offer several styles of worship in varied formats that best bring the Word and seasons to light. These special services include: 


During Lent we have Ash Wednesday,  Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday services, followed by celebratory Easter services. 


The first weekend in October we hold our annual Blessing of the Animals in order to  acknowledge God’s beloved creatures and celebrate the emotional connection we have with our pets. 


We participate with five other Presbyterian churches in the area the for a Joint Thanksgiving Eve service as part of our "Churches in Partnership". 


During Advent, there is a children's pageant, as well as the Christmas Eve service.

Children and Nursery

Children are cherished and welcome to stay for the whole worship service or attend Children's Sunday School, which begins after the Children's Message during the service. Sunday School classes are offered for Pre-school through 5th grade.


Each Sunday, East Woods provides loving attention to your infants and toddlers in the nursery during the worship service.
