Worship

 There are many opportunities to participate in worship and engage in community across our 3-site church.

Candles of Peace: Uptown Chapel on Nov. 24, 1:00-2:30pm. This is a time for reflection and contemplation, and a time to remember those who have passed on to their heavenly home. We’ve all lost people in our lives, and this is a time to sit quietly, pray, and remember those we’ve loved and lost. All are welcome—whether the loss was recent or years ago, we can all use this time to remember.

UPTOWN

Located at 206 SW Walnut, our Uptown site hosts a variety of worship styles each week.

Traditional - 8:30 / 11:00am Sunday

Join us for formal worship each week at 8:30 and 11:00am with inspirational messages, classic hymns led by the organ, and special music presented by choirs, hand bells and orchestra. 

Children's Sunday School is held at the 11:00 service for children 3 years old through 7th grade.

Contemporary - 9:45am Sunday

Come to this contemporary worship service in our traditional sanctuary setting. Upbeat praise music provided by a small worship band enhances this more casual, spirit-filled worship service. Join us!

Children's Sunday School is held during this service for 3 year olds through 7th graders. 

There are three adult Sunday School options at this time in Rooms 317, 310 and 314.


CHRISTIAN LIFE CENTER

Located at 710 NE 36th St, the CLC hosts services with a more contemporary worship style. 

Contemporary Worship - 9:00am / 10:45am Sunday

Contemporary worship is available at 9:00am and 10:45am each Sunday at the Christian Life Center.  You are encouraged to come early (and stay late!) to enjoy coffee, refreshments, and most importantly fellowship in our gathering space. 

In the service, you will experience praise band led contemporary music as well as relevant, spirit-filled prayer and messages.  Children are encouraged to start their worship experience with their parents/guardians and participate in praising God through song before leaving as a group for Sunday School. 

If you are looking for a casual but spirit-filled worship environment, then we are praying that we will see you in worship soon!

Children's Sunday School is offered during both of these services for ages 3 years old through 8th grade.

Saturday Contemporary- 5:30pm Saturday

Come experience this contemporary worship service on Saturday evenings. There is a meal served prior to service and small groups follow.

We have fellowship time after every service and a great brunch every second Sunday of each month.  We look forward to meeting and worshiping with you!

Casual Worship - 10:30am Sunday

If you prefer a more casual worship experience, with modern music offerings, and an intimate setting; 10:30am at Faith Chapel on Sundays is the place for you!  You will get to know and feel part of this faith community as you worship here! We have fellowship time after every service and a great brunch every second Sunday of each month before worship.  We look forward to meeting and worshiping with you!
