SUNDAYS | 8:00 AM | SANCTUARY
We refer to our 8:00am Sunday Morning Worship service as our Informal Service. It is a relaxed service with Pastor in shirt sleeves and the Congregation too.
SUNDAYS | 9:15 AM | SANCTUARY
Each week The Psalm 66 Band "Rocks God’s House" with guitar-driven Christian and secular music to lead us in worship. A typical service begins with an upbeat Praise and Worship song. Performing four songs each week, the Psalm 66 Praise Band plays a style of music that emphasizes pop and rock and roll, but varies to blues, country, and classic inspirational music. The songs are selected to tie into the theme of the service. Members of the congregation participate as leaders for the call to worship, reading of scripture and prayers. Occasionally, the service may include special music, liturgical dance, or dramatic readings to provide additional ways of experiencing God in the worship theme.
SUNDAYS | 10:30 AM | SANCTUARY
The church does have a traditional worship service at the 10:30am worship service. At this service, the Pastor is robed as well as the Chancel Choir and Bell Choir, music is provided by our organist and a more traditional Liturgy is followed. Like our other two Worship Services, it begins with our Pastor welcoming the worshipers and visitors, having the Congregation greet one another and then sharing the "Life and Ministries News" with the Congregation. After this the Pastor asks everyone to prepare themselves to worship, the candles are lit on the altar and the service begins.
Weekly Worship is the cornerstone of our faith, although presented in three different "styles", a typical worship service at a Community Church may include a greeting and opening prayer, time for people to greet each other, scripture readings, silent prayer and meditation, an offering, the Lord's Prayer, a children's message, the sermon, special music and hymns, and a closing prayer. Communion may also be served, usually on the first Sunday of the month at Community Church. All are invited to celebrate communion, but you can choose whether or not you wish to participate.
The Spiritual Life Begins with Communion. Through the Sacrament of Baptism, we are initiated into Christ's holy church. Our Spiritual Life begins with Baptism, it is a sacrament. In a sacrament, God uses common elements — in this case, water — as means or vehicles of divine grace. Baptism is administered in the church as the Body of Christ. It is the act of God through the grace of Jesus Christ and the work of the Holy Spirit. Baptism, as a means of grace, signifies God's initiative in the process of salvation.
Being Baptized does not mean we are automatically saved, salvation is a lifelong journey during which we must continue to respond to God's grace. Baptism offers the promise that the Holy Spirit will always be working in our lives, but salvation requires our acceptance of that grace, trust in Christ, and ongoing growth in holiness as long as we live.
To stay healthy, we must nourish both our bodies and our minds, so often we forget that there is a spiritual side to life that we must nourish to remain spiritually healthy so that our journey to salvation continues. We can do this in a number of ways. A life of faith will enable you to trust God increasingly with every detail of your life, and to practice the following:
When we practice all of these, we become and remain Spiritually healthy. An active prayer life is important to us as individuals, it allows a closer communication with God. Through prayer we thank God for those blessings he bestows on us and also allows us to ask for the help we need to face adversity. We pray not only for ourselves, but for those in need of God's grace. There is an active prayer list sent out via email and also it is included in our "Life and Ministries" every week.
