What does our regular service look like?
The service starts at 10:00 a.m and lasts approximately an hour and 15 minutes. When you open the church doors, you will enter in the main foyer and the church sanctuary where the service takes place is to your right. We don’t have ushers, so please find a place to sit that’s comfortable for you! Typical services last just over an hour. If you are looking for ways that we include children, please visit these pages child or youth. Our style of worship depends on what Sunday you visit. We enjoy being led by an organist, a pianist, our Mt. Hope Praise Team, or the worship band New Roots. All of our services include Bible reading, sermon, prayer, and an offering.
At offering time, two baskets are passed through the congregation. The first supports our church needs in our church budget. The second is designated each Sunday to a different organization or CRCNA ministry that we support. If you are visiting our church, please feel free to give as you able or not at all. Mt Hope CCRC is committed to the process of tithing and if you’d like more information about what that means, please feel free to contact us.
After the service, we enjoy coffee and tea together. We call this time “fellowship.” This is a time to chat and greet old friends and new ones. We hope you will stay to join us, but if you don’t feel comfortable, that’s ok too.
