Worship Styles and Times

At Peace Church we believe that people connect with God through a variety of worship styles. Thats why we provide a diversity of worship experiences, so that you can offer your gift of worship in a way that best matches who you are.

At all of our services, we sing joyfully (although in different musical styles for different settings), share the Word of God, pray together, hear personal stories of how God is working in peoples lives, are encouraged by challenging messages from our worship leaders, and are inspired by the creative use of visual and dramatic arts.

We follow the Wesleyan practice of celebrating Holy Communion at at every worship service. In the United Methodist Church all are welcome to participate in the Lord’s Supper.

Service Times and Types

Sunday, 8:15 a.m. Early Service

A simple, low-tech service with traditional hymns sung to the accompaniment of acoustic guitar. Its an intimate service in which, for instance, prayer time means individuals can share their joys and concerns directly with one another.

Sunday, 9:30 a.m. Praise Service

A high-energy service that is led with music by our Praise Team and Praise Band. It features a lot of video, drama, and experiential elements that bring the scripture lesson to life. You’ll recognize the songs you’re familiar with from Christian pop radio. There’s a Children’s Story where kids come up front for a special lesson time before departing to their own KidsOwn Worship (or hanging out in the Praise Service with their parents).

Sunday, 11:00 a.m. Traditional Service

This service features traditional hymns led by our Chancel Choir. There’s more of an emphasis on familiar liturgy and the traditional visual pageantry (robes and acolytes and such). Additional special music (from classical to gospel) is provided by soloists and ensembles. And, of course, all of our experiential dramatic and creative elements to enhance the day’s scripture lesson are part of this service as well.

Sunday, 6:00 p.m. – ENCOUNTER
