For this service, we meet in our chapel. It is a smaller, more intimate space compared to our sanctuary. The order of worship is very similar to the 11:00 service, and the music is accompanied by piano or organs; however, apart from the congregational hymns, a quartet or small ensemble may offer an anthem. Our pastors also alternate leading this service week to week.
For our Sunday morning contemporary worship service, we meet in the fellowship hall on the lower level. This sets a more casual and flexible worship space. The worship music is lead by a band, usually consisting of electric and acoustic guitars, bass, keyboard, and drums. This service includes multimedia audio and video as well as a coffee bar for your convenience as you enter the worship space. Our pastors alternate leading this service week to week. It begins at 9:01am.
Our most formal traditional service is held in the sanctuary at 11:00 on Sunday mornings. Our sanctuary choir sings every week, and our hand bell choir helps to lead music occasionally. To help support the choir and the congregation, we have an accompanist on our grand piano or our fairly elaborate pipe organ. Our senior pastor typically leads this service.
Recovery at Bristol
Thursdays at 7pm
Our 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 the day’s issues aside and focus solely on their Higher Power – Jesus Christ – and all the change that becomes possible through Him. This service takes place in the fellowship hall on the lower level.
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.
