Worship and Music
Our Worship Services
There are two worship services on Sunday morning:
8:45 - First Light Contemporary service in the Fellowship Hall
10:45 - Traditional Worship service in the Sanctuary
Sunday school for all ages is at 9:30
First Light Worship, at 8:45 is an informal, contemporary style of service. Worshippers sit at tables in the Fellowship Hall. Coffee is provided and many worshippers bring their breakfast with them to the service. A praise team provides the music. Holy Communion is celebrated each week. Pastor Steve Hensley is the worship leader. The service usually ends by 9:30 so that you may attend a Sunday school class.
Worship in the Sanctuary begins at 10:45. This service uses a printed bulletin. Choirs offer anthems and lead the congregation in hymn singing, accompanied by our Moeller pipe organ played by Sandra Folsom. A time for children is included in each service. Holy Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of each month. Services usually end by noon. Pastor Mark Conner has primary leadership of the service.
Our Korean Congregation meets every Sunday at 12:00 in Room 201 in the education building. Rev. Teresa Yeon Choi leads the worship. The service is in Korean.
Music is an important part of First Church. There are opportunities for all ages to be involved in music ministry.
