At the heart of Waterford Mennonite is worship. We gather every Sunday morning to worship with joy-filled sharing of gifts, wisdom and life experiences that represent the full diversity of the congregation, all to the glory of God. An intentional effort is made to blend worship and music styles, mixing hymns and choruses, instrumental and vocal, lively and contemplative. We value the God-given gifts of all ages and work diligently at their discernment, practice and growth. Drawing upon scriptural themes, we include visual arts, drama, and other art forms to further our praise of God in our worship services.
If you would like to be involved in worshiping with us at Waterford Mennonite Church come to one of our two services and become an active part of our community praising God.
Seasons of Creation
During the month of June, we will take a break from following the Narrative Lectionary as we spend a month with the theme of Creation. It seems fitting that as we worship our creator we do so in the midst of God’s bountiful creation! So, for the four Sundays in June we will be worshiping outside in our pavilion. (We will be live-streaming the service to the inside sanctuary for anyone who needs a climate controlled room.)
We will gather for worship at 9 a.m., followed by our nurture hour electives from 10:30 – 11:30. For this series, we will be drawing from a resource called “Seasons of Creation.” Each week we will focus on a different area of God’s creation. We look forward to hearing from two guest preachers who are both educated and passionate about creation care — Luke Gascho from Waterford, and Janeen Bertsche Johnson from Anabaptist Biblical Seminary and the Mennonite Creation Care Network. During our worship on June 11, we will gather around tables and share together in Communion.
We invite you to bring your lawn chairs and a heart ready to experience God in new ways amidst the created beauty that will surround us.
