WHAT'S SUNDAY MORNING LIKE?
There’s no dress code. Our 10am service includes our children's program. We do some traditional music. We do some contemporary music.
Kids start Church with their famlily and then can go to Children’s Chapel during the Adult Sermon where they do a zany, fun and excellent curriculum called What's In The Bible. Check it out here. We have a Nursery. And you can listen to our Sermons here.
At 11:15am we have our Red Door Coffee Meet n' Greet where we serve Free Trade, Roasted-in-Wisconsin Coffee grown by our brothers and sisters in the Episcopal Church in Haiti. It's called Singing Rooster and you can check it out here.
Our Sunday worship is a celebration of the Holy Eucharist. The word “eucharist” means “thanksgiving” and that’s the focus: all kinds of people coming together in God’s Name to give Him thanks. Because He’s awesome. We gather to give thanks, pray for our world and each other, be anointed with oil for healing, fed by God’s Word and fed by Jesus’ presence in Bread and Wine.
So what’s Sunday morning like at the Red Doors? It’s like Thanksgiving. Scripture. God. Singing. Believing. Jesus. Praying. Forgiveness. Bread. Wine. The Holy Spirit. Oil. Water. Healing.
That’s what we gather for each Sunday. To immerse ourselves in this reality. To be fed by God. And to carry that same food out to a broken and hurting world in Jesus’ Name.
KIDS AT THE RED DOORS
Infants and children are always welcome to stay with their families in the Sanctuary for the entire service.
On Sundays at our 10am service we have a Nursery for Children four and under.
Children ages Kinder through 5th Grade start worship with their families and are invited up front for a Blessing & Dismissal. They can then go to Children's Chapel during the Adult Sermon and came back to have Communion with their family.
On third Sundays in place of Children's Chapel the kids stay and help serve: at the altar, reading the Scriptures, greeting guests. After all it's their Church too! Practice for third Sundays is immediately after Church on second Sundays.
PARENT'S NIGHT / MORNING OUT
About once a quarter we offer Parent's Night / Morning Out on Friday Night or Saturday morning's. It's a night of fun events, crafts and dinner for the kids and a chance for Mom & Dad to get out on a date!
VBS & OTHER FUN
Througout the year we offer additional opportunities for learning the faith and having fun such as Vacation Bible School in the Summer, Saint Nicholas Day in December and Trick or Treating at the Church for Halloween to name a few. Sign up for our e-news here to stay up to date.
SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY
Everyone who ministers to children at Christ Church has had a background check completed the Safeguarding God's Children program.
