In-Person Worship & Online
What is a gathering like?
We gather Sundays at 10am. Each gathering includes singing songs, corporate Confession (admitting to God that we need forgiveness), Absolution (God's Word of forgiveness because of what Jesus has done for us), Scripture Readings, a sermon/message from the pastor, a creed (a statement about what we believe as the Church), and Holy Communion.
What's the music and worship like?
Our worship practices are modern yet timeless. We choose a creative approach in our worship practices, blending the best of modern and historic practices of Jesus's church.
What should I wear?
People at Open Arms tend to dress casually. Jeans and t-shirts are normal, although some choose to dress up more than others. Dress as you are comfortable.
Should I give?
If you are a guest with us, don't feel you need to give any money when offering is collected. If you are a follower of Jesus, you are welcome to offer your tithes and offerings to God.
Can I take Communion?
The Bible lays out clear guidelines for receiving Communion. If you have been instructed in Communion and are able to answer "yes" to these questions, you are invited to share this great gift of God:
1.) Are you baptized?
2.) Do you believe Jesus' body and blood are truly present in this meal?
3.) Are you sorry for you sin, want to turn from it, and believe that Jesus saves you from it?
4.) Do you believe the teachings of this church?
If this sounds new to you or come from a different faith background, it is okay. We love having people explore faith with us and we'd love to have you join us in the future. If you'd like to learn more or have questions, please let us know.
