Sharing Hope & Changing Lives

What Can I Expect?

LCMC

Before the Service

__________________________________________________________________________

Community of Hope - Prince of Peace Church offers Sunday worship service at 10:00 am.  

 

Settle in

Here, you’ll notice a casual famliy atmosphere and people of all ages and walks of life, and all children are welcome in the services with their families.  A host will welcome you when you arrive and one of our ushers will give you a bulletin, which includes church announcements and other helpful information.  You can sit wherever you're comfortable and if you ever need help finding a seat, an usher would be more than happy to help you!

 

During the service

__________________________________________________________________________

Worship, music and the arts

This time is set aside for communicating with God from our hearts.  Our worship team leads us in modern, upbeat songs of celebration, as well as more intimate songs of worship.  Many of the songs may be familiar to you if you listen to the radio stations KLOVE (98.9 FM) or WDLM (89.3 FM).  In addition to our music, Community of Hope values many artistic expressions of worship including drama, dance, multi-media and more.  Everyone worships in his or her own unique way – for many, that means singing, clapping along and raising hands, for others it means quietly reflecting on the words.  You’re welcome to do whatever makes you feel most comfortable.

 

Offering

Each week we receives an offering.  As a guest, please do not feel any pressure to give.  This is an act of worship for our regular attendees, allowing them to thank God for all of the great work He is doing in their lives.  It also gives Community of Hope Church the means to reach more people for Christ in the future.

 

The message (sermon)

Every weekend, you will hear a relevant, straightforward message from Scripture that is helpful in your everyday life.  We trust that these messages will help you develop a growing, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ and provide a strong biblical foundation for your life.

 

Communion

The first and second Sunday of each month, we celebrate communion together. Anyone can participate in this time of reflection and prayer – as long as they’ve made the decision to follow Jesus Christ.  The wine or juice and bread that we share represent the life He gave up so that our sins could be forgiven.

 

After the service

__________________________________________________________________________

Visit the Connection Corner

As a guest, you may fill out a Connection Card at the Connection Corner (located near the main entrance) and meet some of our volunteers and leaders.  They're happy to answer any questions that you may have about our church and have a special gift for you and your family. The Connection Corner is home to many opportunities that you may want to take advantage of and is located on the south side of the main entrance.

 

Visit the Cafe' Hope

If you’d like a cup of coffee or a snack before or after the service or want to sit and chat with friends or family, Cafe' Hope is a great place. Relax, discuss the day’s message, or connect with others both before the service and after.
