Sunday Morning Service: 10:30 a.m.
God has created us to worship. In worship we praise God for being who God is. During that time on Sunday morning, we help each other see God’s reality of hope and mercy in our world. As our Book of Order states, in worship we “respond to God’s claim and redemptive action in Jesus Christ.” Hopefully, we leave worship transformed, renewed, and ready to be God’s disciples for another week.
Worship at Woodhaven is traditional and Reformed. We enjoy the mystery of the liturgy, the beauty of all styles of music, and the power of the Word. Our worship is not centered on entertainment or meeting our needs. It is centered on giving thanks to God and trying to discern God’s call for our lives. Children are welcome in worship at Woodhaven. We do have a nursery for babies and toddlers, but children are always invited to stay in worship for the entire service.
We celebrate the Lord’s Supper once a month, usually on the first Sunday of the month. We also celebrate the sacrament of communion on holy days; such as Christmas Eve, Maundy Thursday, Easter, and Pentecost.
Our Chancel Choir and Alleluia Ringers Handbell Choir are important elements of our worship leadership team. Every Sunday, they offer up music on our behalf.
Children and Worship
Children are always welcome in worship at Woodhaven. In order to help children and parents worship more fully, the Worship Team has provided several options:
- Worship Kits, available in the narthex, have aids for worship including a letter to parents with tips for worshipping with children, book about worship, crayons for hymns and scripture, and a scratch pad where children can draw a picture of something that captures their imagination in worship.
- Worship Resources including story Bibles, seasonal resources and other books of interest are available on the children’s cart in the narthex.
- All adults are invited to become Worship Partners by inviting children in our church family to worship with them. Together, children and adults can explore the mysteries of worship and renew faith and understanding through each other’s perspective.
