What Should I Expect?

Before the Service

When you enter the church, our greeters will be there to welcome you.

If you would like a bulletin, with the order of service, one will be provided to you. Our praise band goes through a final practice before the service. If they’re running a bit late, you might get a chance to hear them perform a bit during their practice.

Our bulletin is also available online in a mobile device friendly format. To access it electronically, click on the button below.

 

Our Service of Worship

There is a basic pattern that we generally follow, but we don’t necessarily have a strict order of service. Most of the time, variations from that pattern are highlighted in the bulletin.

Praise and Worship

We generally start with a greeting and prayer from Aubrey, our minister. After his greeting, we often have a couple of quick announcements from members of the congregation, highlighting specific up-coming events or celebrating the success of recent events.

After announcements, we move into praise. We generally start this with a song. Sometimes, it’s led by the Praise Team, sometimes it’s a hymn sung by the choir. After that first song, the Praise Team and Choir lead us in song as we sing two or three more.

You will be invited to, if you choose, stand during the praise period. This service of worship is your service of worship, so please do whatever is most comfortable and whatever works best for you.

Our Prayer Song

Our final praise song is our prayer song. Prior to this song, the children from pre-school to grade 5 are invited to go out back for KidZone, our Sunday School program. Everyone is seated for the prayer song. We sing a couple of verses; Aubrey  prays, and we finish with the final verse.

The Message

After the prayer song, we enter into the scriptures. This is where Aubrey reads from the Bible, to share the gospel with us and gives us the message. Aubrey’s message brings the scripture to life explaining how we can apply it to live productive, loving, Christian lives in our modern world.

The Money

This is very much a part of our worship. God blesses us in so much abundance and this is our opportunity to share that blessing. The money collected supports our work spreading the good news in many ways. It may be as simple as paying the bills and keeping the lights on or it may support our efforts to feed those who struggle in our community and around the World.

Fellowship

After Aubrey’s message, we generally end with one more song, followed by Aubrey’s benediction.

After the service, you are invited back to our hall, through the doors at the front of the sanctuary, for a time of fellowship. This is our opportunity to get to know you and your opportunity to get to know us.

So, Welcome to Central. We’re glad you’re here and we hope and pray that this will be a wonderful experience for you. If you want a taste of Aubrey’s message, here’s our latest sermon.
