Worship Care

 

 

 

 

Child Care for children ages 1-4 years is offered during worship by adults who are especially trained for that purpose. 

 
 

 

Children's Room

Infants are always welcome during worship.  When needed there is a sound proof Children's Room at the back of the sanctuary.  The worship service can be viewed through the large window, and can be heard through speakers located in the room.

Our Worship Service

Sunday Morning Worship Service
10:00 a.m. - 11:15 a.m.

We gather together in the presence of God to pray with and for one another; read, hear and meditate upon scripture; share joys and concerns; hear the Word preached; and offer praise to God through music.  When requested the sacrament of Baptism is offered.  On the first Sunday of each month the children join their family in the sanctuary to share in the sacrament of Holy Communion.  On the second and fourth Sunday of each month a Children's Message is given.  Before worship you will hear the joyful noise of people greeting one another.  During worship you may hear clapping or even laughter.  Worship continues downstairs in Fellowship Hall as we gather for refreshment and fellowship.  Our worship together as the Body of Christ is a reminder that truly God is good - All the time!

Sunday Morning Reflections

May 20, 2018

 

Good morning, and a beautiful one it is. Hard to imagine that in 34 days our days begin to get shorter, where do the days go?  I have had a couple questions about our flags not being at half-staff a week or so ago. The reason we did not lower them is that the State of Maine pulley system is broke as was the Christian Flag system. We have temporarily taken down the State Flag to repair the pole which allows us to lower the U.S. flag correctly. I hope this answers the concerns I was hearing. 

 

   We are looking to show the movie, "I Can Only Imagine" during the week of June 12th. It will be on the large screen downstairs. If you are interested please let me know.

"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." (2 Timothy 4:7)

As the time of graduation is upon us I thought it an appropriate time to remind us all to “Run our own race.” Do not spend time focusing on what others are doing and accomplishing instead focus on your gifts and spend much time asking God what he is calling you to do.

I believe God does call each of us to run our own course in this life. A course that will bring us into a deeper relationship with Him and with His children. If we all ran our own race and didn’t worry about others imagine how little gossip there would be, or envy, jealousy or comparing that person to another person. Run your race and keep moving forward. 

This week, pray about the race God is calling you to run, at whatever stage of life you are in. Aim to keep moving forward, looking, praying and searching for God’s purposes for you. Without growth, we become stagnant. Just as we celebrate graduates, join God in celebrating your growth as you reach new milestones. I hope to see you this morning as we celebrate our youth! Pastor Carl

 

 Almighty God, help keep me on course. May I run the race you are calling me to run with the gifts that I am blessed to have and not worry about other’s gifts and how they’re running their race. Lord forgive me when I sin either in action or thought. Help me oh Lord to focus on You and to be present with those you put in my path. Lord I thank you for the blessings, the teachings and the convictions even when they are hard to see or hear for I know they can help our relationship. Father guide me this day as I pray this and all things in the name of Your Son, Amen
