COGS’ Sunday Worship Services
Summer Worship 10 am
Worship Services are a time when we gather as a faith community to learn, express our joys and concerns, and share God’s love.
We dress casually, and greet new and regular worshipers alike, with warmth and kindness. We strive to create a joyful, safe and welcoming environment in worship, and every aspect of our church life. We laugh a lot! We honor God with music of the highest quality, and from a broad number of cultures and languages. In preaching, our pastor seeks to be comforting, challenging, thought provoking and inspirational.
Normal Sunday Schedule during the year – resumes Sunday after Labor Day (September 10, 2017):
First Service starts at 9:00 a.m.
Sunday School starts at 10:00 am
Second Service starts at 11:00 a.m.
During the summer, there is an Adult Education class only at 9 am and only one Worship Service at 10 am , beginning May 21 and going through August, 2017.
During the rest of the year, there are two services of worship each Sunday morning.
First Service begins at 9 a.m. and lasts about 45 minutes. It is very informal. Our band leads the singing, and children and youth share in much of the leadership of First Service.
Second Service begins at 11 a.m. and usually lasts a bit more than an hour. It feels somewhat traditional, but not stuffy. Our organist and pianist accompany most of the service, though the band sometimes plays, too. One or more of our six choirs provide music each week. Adults and youth share leadership of Second Service.
