Come and Worship - Sundays at 10:00am
Worship at the Dayton Church is Central to Our Life, Mission and Ministry
Worship is held in our beautiful, fully accessible sanctuary each Sunday morning at 10:00am. Worshippers will be greeted by ushers ready to assist with the operation of our lift, bulletins, distribution of hearing assistance devices, or to answer any questions.
Come on Sundays and anticipate
- Hearing Scripture read and proclaimed in ways that are relevant to living as a believer
in today's world through sermon and song;
- Participating in our prayer life through liturgy, music, silence and speech;
- Being prepared to go out into the world as bearers of God's light.
The sacrament of the Lord's Supper is offered on the first Sunday of each month and baptism upon the request of members, counsel of the pastor and concurrence of the Session.
Children are always welcome in worship. Our service begins with the children of our church, who take turns ringing our steeple bell to call everyone to worship and serving as acolytes. During the school year, there is a children's message each Sunday and all children are invited to participate in our Sunday school program immediately following. Several "celebration" services are offered during the year, where children remain for the entirety of a worship service designed with all of God's children in mind, including easily singable hymns, family friend litugy and a specially crafted message for the day.
We have two choirs who assist with worship leadership: a bell choir which offers music approximately once a month and the sanctuary choir which sings each week during the program year. During the summer, special music including soloists, duets and instrumentalists is offered during worship.
