Sunday morning is our main time of gathering and worshiping as a community. Here is what you can expect during a typical Sunday morning Worship Service at CCA.
At 10:00am, the worship team wraps up their practice and worship music continues to play through the sound system. This signals us to start our pre-service prayer. Anyone is welcome to join us during our pre-service prayer where we spend some time asking God to be with us and meet us during our service. You will see leaders speak out on the microphone and lead those in attendance in the time of prayer. Between 10:15 and 10:20am the pre-service prayer time ends and we finish setting up for our service.
Promptly at 10:30am, whoever is leading worship will count the band off and lead the congregation in a time of worship and praise through music. The worship leader picks songs that encourage the congregation to turn their focus on God and enter into His presence.
After a couple or so songs, we take a break to greet one another and release the children to children’s church. Then we sing a few more songs and spend some time worshiping, praying, or meditating on God’s word as lead by the worship leader.
When the music portion of the service is over, our leaders share announcements and we encourage the congregation to worship God at anytime during the service, through their giving of tithes and offerings. We also present ways members of the church can build in relationship with others by joining a Micro Group.
After announcements and offering, the speaker of the day, usually the lead pastor, leads us in worship through the hearing of God’s word. He or she shares a message that presents the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a way that can be applied practically to everyday life. Communion is also offered multiple times throughout the month.
Around 11:45am and 12:00pm the service ends and the speaker of the day sends us off with encouragement and prayer. At this time parents are encouraged to walk over to the fellowship hall or back to the nursery to pick up and check out their children.
