Traditional Service 8:45 AM
This service meets in our chapel, which is a smaller, more intimate space than our sanctuary. The order of worship is very similar to the 11:00 service, and music is accompanied by piano or organ. Apart from the congregational hymns, a quartet or small ensemble may offer an anthem. Our pastors alternate leading this service week to week.
The 9:01 Experience
Our Sunday morning contemporary worship service meets in the fellowship hall on the lower level, a more casual and flexible worship space. A band, usually including electric and acoustic guitars, bass, keyboard, and drums, leads contemporary worship music. This service includes multimedia audio and video and features a coffee bar as you enter the worship space. Our pastors alternate leading this service week to week. The service begins at 9:01am.
Traditional Service 11:00 AM
Our most formal traditional service is in the sanctuary at 11:00 each Sunday morning. Our sanctuary choir sings every week, and our hand bell choir helps to lead music occasionally. Our accompanist supports the choir and the congregation on our grand piano or our fairly elaborate pipe organ. Our senior pastor usually leads this service.
During the 9:01 and 11:00 services, children ages four through third grade are welcome to go to Godly Play, a worship time designed just for them. They meet in the Godly Play space, Room 116 on the main floor. Volunteers from our children’s ministry lead this special time.
Recovery Celebration Service at 7:00pm - Thursday Evening
The celebration service is a central part of the Recovery at Bristol program. With a band providing live contemporary Christian music, exciting multi-media productions and dynamic speakers, the Recovery at Bristol celebration service allows participants to put aside the day’s issues to focus solely on their Higher Power –– Jesus Christ –– and the change that is possible through Him. This service meets in the fellowship hall on the lower level.
