Our Sunday worship starts at 10:00 am CT and generally lasts about an hour. It is streamed online through Facebook (you don’t need to be a Facebook user to access it). Past services are available online at Facebook and YouTube. Children, infants, and toddlers are welcome in worship.
Our worship is informal, relaxed, and joyful. Come as you are – we dress for comfort, not style.. Our worship space is simple and functional: comfortable chairs, concrete floor (with painted labyrinth), piano, pulpit, and communion table (in our tradition it’s not called an altar). On your way in, an usher will give you a printed worship bulletin with all the information you’ll need.
Music & Choir
Our congregation loves to sing! In worship, we enjoy both hymns and praise songs. Hymnals are available, but all lyrics are projected on large screens. Accompaniment is by piano, with occasional other instruments.
Our music program is varied and participatory: we have a spirited choir and a variety of individual and small ensemble songs, including by children. There are many opportunities to be involved.
The Flow of Worship
Our worship flows in a pattern familiar to many churchgoers. It begins with a welcome from the pastor, followed by songs and prayers, At the Passing of the Peace we share greetings and, where appropriate, hugs. We hear a passage from the Bible, and then the pastor invites children forward for a children’s message. The sermons connect the Bible’s teachings to our real-life issues. We take up an offering to support the church and its ministries - don’t worry, visitors are not expected to contribute - and then pray for the world and the prayer concerns of the congregation. We close with a song and a blessing, followed by a time of fellowship.
Children in Worship
Children are welcome at Spirit of Life, and we think it’s great when families can worship together. We offer children’s Sunday School from 9:30-10:45 on Sunday mornings. At 10:15, the children come to the worship service for a children’s message (sometimes with puppets), and then join their families for the remainder of worship.
