The worship of God is central to the life of our church. We encourage reverence and authenticity whenever we approach Almighty God. When this is achieved, we believe that we will find the “fullness of joy” in God’s presence (Psalm 16:11). As we come boldly to the throne of grace, we experience deep, spiritual growth; a growth that is sustained by the empowering work of the Holy Spirit and through our participation in the body of Christ. We invite you to come grow with us in worship, fellowship, and God’s word.
Come as You Are | God’s Grace Extends to Everyone
A typical worship service at Hazel Crest Community United Methodist Church will usually include an open welcome to everyone to participate in worship, scripture readings, silent meditation, an offering, sharing of joys and concerns, intercessory prayer, a children’s message, the sermon, special music by the choir, congregational singing, greeting each other (passing the peace), and a closing prayer.
Holy Communion is served the first Sunday of every month. All are invited to celebrate communion, but you may choose whether or not you wish to participate.
There will be some differences in the services from time to time. Some services might take a more formal, traditional style, while others may have a more casual or contemporary feel. Whatever might be the case, we believe that worship must be “in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24).
