At Christ Community, we view our times of corporate worship as a precious privilege and a time to experience, while still on earth, a little bit of what heaven will be like (Revelation 4-5). These are vital times in which we teach and admonish one another, build each other up, encourage fellow believers and stimulate one another to love and good deeds (Col 3:12-17, Heb 10:24-25) – all as we directly offer praise, worship, and adoration to our God in an attitude of holy reverence (Heb 12:28-29).
The purpose of our worship service is to glorify God by praising Him and edifying believers. To this end we worship through song, public reading of Scripture, prayer, expository preaching, and giving. Our singing is a mix of God-exalting hymns and contemporary songs accompanied by a variety of instruments. Our Scripture reading and prayer are led by our Shepherds/Elders. Each Sunday morning, before our corporate worship service, we meet from 9:00-10:15am to grow in our understanding of, and obedience to, the Word of God.
Young children (newborn through age 3) can be cared for by Our loving nursery staff during both the Bible Fellowship hour (9-10:15am) and during the morning worship service (10:30am). The children meet for age-appropriate teaching in the following age ranges: 4-5, 6-9, 10-12. Find out more about children’s Sunday School and other ministries for children.
Periodically throughout the year, the youth, ages 13-18 meet together for a time of Bible study, prayer, and fellowship. The majority of the time, the youth meet with the rest of the church family for Bible study, prayer, and fellowship. Find out more about youth ministry at CCC.
The adults meet together for a time of study and encouragement from God’s Word. We rotate between the expository teaching of books of the Bible and the teaching of biblical topics. This is a rich time of teaching, interaction, and encouragement of one another to love and good deeds! We make it a point during the week to break down into smaller groups, meeting in homes to sing, share, pray with one another, and study the Scripture together. We do not believe that small groups are the key to the church (sound teaching is), but they have a valuable function in allowing the body to be spiritually healthy. These groups meet in various locations. Please call the church office (603-675-5673) for locations.
