What to Expect at Worship
If you are planning to attend Resurrection Metropolitan Community Church for the first time, we are glad to welcome you! We strive to be a congregation filled with inviting hospitality and look forward to meeting you!
Worship services are Sundays at 9 & 11 am. While identical in form, they contain elements from diverse religious traditions each week. Services are approximately 70 minutes.
Our congregation tends to dress casually with most wearing jeans or slacks, some in shorts and a few dresses and suits. We hope you will come in the way you feel most comfortable to Worship.
Your presence with us for Worship is a gift that blesses us and we want to give you a gift in return. We give a coffee mug to everyone who visits so that you will remember us each morning and know you are loved and welcome. We’ll invite you to raise your hand at the beginning of Worship and will give you a brochure about the church and a card to receive your free coffee mug. We won’t ask you to introduce yourself or stand — we simply want to welcome you and be sure you receive our gift. After Worship you are invited to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea on us in our Gathering Place.
Communion is served at all Worship services and may be receive individually or with a small group of friends or loved ones. At Resurrection MCC, we celebrate an Open Communion — you do not need to be a member of our church, or any church, to receive these gifts of grace, hope, and love. Grape juice is served so that all may participate. A blessing in Spanish and gluten-free wafers are available. Those who prefer not to receive communion are welcome to remain seated.
Childcare is provided for infants and children aged one month through three years. The nursery is located to the right of the Sanctuary entrance and is open during the 9 & 11 am Worship services.
Youth Ministries Program
Children and youth, ages 4 – 17 years are invited to join our Children & Youth Ministries Program at 11 am on Sunday. We begin each Sunday in worship where we offer a Children’s Blessing before our teaching teams guide our children to the Activities Building where they are introduced to God’s Love through lessons, creative activities, and reflective exercises which encourage spiritual exploration and growth.
Our campus has over 20 handicap parking spaces, curb ramps for both buildings, six gender-neutral bathrooms, eight handicap-accessible bathrooms, wheelchair seating areas near the front of our Sanctuary, braille signage throughout the campus, and an elevator to our choir rehearsal room. Our Worship service at 11 am is interpreted into Spanish using wireless transmitters and is signed for the Deaf. Assistive listening devices are available in the Narthex.
