Worship

Worship with us on Sundays at 9:15 am. Communion is served the first Sunday of each month.

Adult Bible Study is Sundays at 10:45 am and on weekdays.

Families with children and youth worship together at 9:15 am.
We believe worship is a family event, in which individual families join together in the family of God.  Youth and children hear more than we imagine. What better thing to witness than seeing a parent worshiping the Lord?  We know that children can distract parents (distracting the parents far more than anyone else!), so activity sheets related to the worship are available. Nursery care for babies and toddlers is also available.

Sunday School is available for preschool and elementary-aged children together with Bethany (Korean) Presbyterian Church at 10:45 am. Youth are invited to the Youth Worship service with Bethany youth at 11 am. Parents are invited to join other adults at adult Sunday School also at 11 am.

What will you notice about our worship services? 

We are a multicultural church and our worship often reflects it. Our music director is Brazilian.  We sing traditional, contemporary and international songs of praise.  

Worship is Reformed  (Presbyterian) but informal. We worship with our minds, hearts and bodies. When we pass the peace of Christ, we pour into the aisles and greet each other with hugs as well as handshakes.  As a Presbyterian church, we celebrate God’s grace and love. We have seen amazing things, prayers answered, people’s lives changed. Prayer is a major part of our worship. People raise prayer concerns and we pray during worship and also throughout the week.  

The preaching at RTM is excellent. Our pastor does not read from a manuscript or from behind a pulpit, but comes into the aisles among us. There are often tears and laughter during sermons. The scripture comes alive.

Visitors discover that while we truly love one another, there is always room for more in our family. Visitors are warmly welcomed and find they are soon among true friends in Christ, among people who care about them.  We are not intrusive, but neither does anyone remain nameless or invisible here.

We offer special, creative services for the traditional Christian celebrations of Christmas, Ash Wednesday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter.  Ash Wednesday features a time for honest soul-searching along with the imposition of ashes; Holy Thursday includes an engaging, dramatic re-telling of the holy story which concludes with the echo of 30 silver coins; Good Friday focuses on the enormity of Christ’s sacrifice and ends in darkness, candles extinguished, curtains torn. Christmas and Easter celebrations are alive with music and gospel proclamation that revives our souls.

Come and see!
