What happens during a Sunday morning service?
After some singing, a welcome, and prayer, you’ll hear a message followed by communion. If you would like to express your faith and commitment to Christ, you are welcome to participate. You may come forward to the tables at the front or go to the servers at the middle of the room. During the worship time that follows communion, you may participate in a variety of ways. Around the room, you’ll find stations where you may light a candle, write a prayer, or make a financial offering. Prayer Servants, identified by the badges hanging around their necks, are available in the back corner of this room to minister to you in prayer for any need. After the service you are welcome to visit the Connecting Space in the Commons next to the welcome desk, where you can meet someone and ask any questions.
Where do I go when I get there?
There will be a greeter at the door as you arrive. Feel free to help yourself to a cup of coffee and bagel or donut. If you have children, the Children's Ministry table is located to your left as you enter the Commons. Our Middle and High School groups meet in the barn that’s on the right as you approach the building. Upon entering, you will be greeted and given a copy of our montly bulletin with information. Feel free to make a nametag at the table in the Commons. You can also fill out a Welcome Card if you would like to find out more about us, and someone will contact you.
What if I have questions about Cedar Ridge?
Immediately following every service, we offer “Cedar Ridge in 7 Minutes” in the front of the auditorium especially for our first time guests. You can stop by and ask any questions you may have, and also learn a bit more about who we are as a church, where we've been, and where we're going.
We have a Welcome Luncheon every other month on the first Sunday of the month.
And we have The Journey a few times a year. The Journey is a four-week group experience (or sometimes all in one day) that is a fun and meaningful introduction to Cedar Ridge and its vision, values and people. It's a time for sharing conversation and food and joining fellow companions in exploring the spiritual walk together. It's current and relevant to what is happening at Cedar Ridge now.ShareThis
