Worship

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.

Spring/Summer Worship Series

Biblical Characters; Creation

From April 28 through August 11, we will devote 9 Sundays to look at different biblical characters, 4 Sundays in June to focus on Creation themes, and we will have 3 special stand-alone Sundays – Graduation Sunday, VBS Sunday, and hearing from our MYF on their service trip to MCC Appalachia Build (formerly SWAP).

In this timeframe some of our very own WMCers will preach, and we will welcome several guest preachers beyond the congregation.          

We look forward to digging into the stories of biblical characters to learn how they experienced God, God’s presence, and God’s people. As we focus on Creation in June, we will once again worship from our pavilion, in the midst of creation. (We will livestream the service to the inside sanctuary for anyone who needs a climate controlled setting.)

We invite you to join us in opening ourselves to the movement of the Spirit in our midst. What will we learn? How will we be inspired or challenged? How will we encounter our living God? Join us for the journey!
