We use a variety of traditions and rituals to worship God each week. For special occasions, like World Communion Sunday (first Sunday in October), All Saints Day (first Sunday in November), Holy Thursday (during holy week), Good Friday (during holy week), and Easter Sunrise (Easter Sunday), we use a variety of liturgies to celebrate.
We participate in worship through singing, sharing our prayers, passing the peace, and on occasion dialoguing with the preacher.
Our Table is open to all who believe Jesus is their Lord and Savior. Come as you are and who you are!
We are currently following the Narrative Lectionary. This is a four-year, all-inclusive reading of the Bible that covers the major biblical stories of our faith.
You are invited to worship and to come just as you are, wear some comfortable clothing, and come prepared to open your heart to God and the Holy Spirit.
Looking for something a little different, less traditional? Wednesday Night Worship is an open and affirming group that worships God through a meal, sacred conversation, study, fellowship, communion, and prayer. If you are not familiar with “church” then this group would be a great place to start.
Steve is our Music and Choir Director. He leads our dedicated choir in worship each Sunday morning (except during the summer break). Rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings at 6:30 p.m. Our choir is open to all ages. Share your talents with us for praising and glorifying God. Steve is not new to the area, as he has served in a few Disciples of Christ churches in Weatherford and Dallas-Ft. Worth area. We are excited to have him on our worship team. Steve also offers piano and vocal lessons in Weatherford and in Mineral Wells. Please contact the church for more information.
We have a children's handbell choir so children may be more involved in worship. Rehearsals for the handbell choir occur during Godly Play on Sunday mornings and Wednesday Nights.
We believe when children are involved in worship, classes, and other activities, they tend to have lasting spiritual and religious lives. We provide children with bulletins, crayons and pencils, and activities for those attending the service. Older children are encouraged to read and lead during the worship service. A nursery is also available for smaller ones if you so choose. All who work, teach and mentor children have background checks annually.
Children come to know and trust in God through Godly Play. Located next to the nursery is a dedicated room for children to hear, sing, and learn about the story of God. Teachers use audio and visual methods to teach children about the major biblical stories, allow each child to explore and ask questions, inviting them to be a part of the story in a variety of ways. We offer Godly play at 9:30 a.m. Sunday mornings and 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays. There are special times during the year where the children share with the congregation what they have learned.
Looking for ways to get involved? Our worship team welcomes fresh and creative ideas to continue to improve our worship experience. We look to ancient, traditional, and contemporary variations of worship to help deliver a message of hope and love, to inspire and renew, and sing praises to God. If you are a creative person, loves to praise God, wants to learn new things, then this team is for you.
