We feel that worship is the natural response to God’s love for us. In a corporate sense, we gather to celebrate that love and give it back through our worship of the Lord Almighty. There are many different styles and ways that we can do that and that is why we offer two distinctly different worship services (Traditional and Contemporary). The main goal of the worship experience in both services is that you come away knowing you’ve encountered the Living God.
Child care and children’s Sunday school is offered during both of these services.
Traditional Worship Service (Sunday mornings at 9:30)
This service concentrates on the reverence of God. We sing great hymns of the faith from our hymnals accompanied by a pipe organ. Pastor Kevin presents the Word in a relevant, easily to understand way that allows you to apply it to your life experience.
Contemporary Worship Service ( Sunday Mornings at 11:00)
This service is geared more to the relational aspect of God. We are led by our praise team, which consists of drums, bass, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, keyboard, violin and 3 vocalists. We sing current, recognizable praise and worship songs as well as hymns that have been “revamped” for a more current sound. Pastor Kevin brings us relevant, Biblical Truths that are presented with various types of multimedia.
Worship Team Opportunities
The adult choir rehearses the first two Thursday’s of each month and sings the Sunday following those rehearsals. Thursday rehearsals run from 7:00-8:00. Attendance is anywhere from 18-30. The choir sings at the beginning of each of the two services, 9:30 and 11:00. That allows members to attend Sunday School which meets opposite their worship service. The choir is off the summer months June-August. The musical selections generally tend to be more contemporary and suitable for blended worship. The choir usually performs one musical during the year, either at Christmas or Easter. Steve Dye directs the choir. Sally Oyster is the accompanist.
The praise team leads our 11:00 contemporary service with songs from current Christian artists such as Starfield, David Crowder, Chris Tomlin, Hillsong United, Paul Baloche and others. The current instrumentation includes drums, bass, acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards, violin and 3 singers. Pastor Bob is always looking for individuals that have a heart for leading worship and gifted in the area of music. Call Pastor Bob at 330.493.3222 if you are interested in participating in this ministry.
We utilize multimedia in the 11:00 service and we are always looking for someone who has a basic working knowledge of computers and has a heart for serving in this way. Training on our presentation software (Easyworship) is provided. If you are interested, contact Pastor Bob at 330.493.3222.
King’s Kids Children’s Choir
The King’s Kids Children’s Choir meets September through April on Sunday evenings from 5:30-7:00 pm. The activities each Sunday evening include music rehearsal, a devotion, a game or craft, and snack. Children, ages kindergarten through sixth grade, are invited to join us. The children learn music that we sing for our congregation twice a month in the contemporary service at 11:00 am. One of the highlights each year of each year is our Christmas Nativity pageant where we present the Christmas story through a child’s eyes with narration, costumes, and song.
