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.
Christmas provided many of us with a welcome visual and emotional respite from short days and long cold nights. But the coldest part of winter, and an untamed pandemic, lies still ahead of us, perhaps dampening our spirits even more. For the month of January at Waterford, we’ll enter into a worship series focusing on hope, examining some characteristics of faith we will need in the year ahead. Where do you expect to find hope in 2021?
To guide us in the series, we will use the acrostic of H.O.P.E. for these four Sundays:
Jan. 10: Honest reflection
Jan. 17: Openmindedness
Jan. 24: Passionate following
Jan. 31: Evolving faith
Bringing a variety of perspectives on these themes will be the following four preachers, respectively, from our congregation: J.E. Misz, Neil Amstutz, Andrew Hartzler, and Cindy Voth. As part of our “passionately following” Jesus on the 24th, we will observe communion together.
May God guide us in 2021, not into mere attitudes of hopefulness, but into practices to sustain us as disciples of Jesus Christ in a frequently changing world.
