We welcome guests at Webster Hills and will be ready for your arrival! People at all stages and ages of life worship here. There’s no dress code. You’ll see everything from blue jeans to coats and ties. Worship takes place in the inviting spaces of our chapel at 9 a.m. (starting Dec. 3) and the sanctuary at 10:30 a.m. Christian Education is at 9 a.m. We offer nursery care throughout the morning.
We know it can be intimidating and a little bit tricky to get involved with a new congregation. We want to make it as easy as possible. If you are new, make sure you have stopped by the welcome desk on Sunday morning to give us your contact information. We want to get to know you and help you find ways to get connected. We encourage you to meet with Millie McDowell, our Connections and New Ministries Coordinator. She will help you find a good fit, make some introductions and check in with you to make sure you are finding what you need.
As a new year arrives, we are presented with a clean slate. It’s a chance to start fresh and make changes. Too often our plans fizzle out within a few weeks. This year, let’s look beyond. Beyond New Year resolutions; beyond the first few weeks of the year; beyond the temptation to fall back into familiar patterns. Starting January 7 we are turning to some powerful words written by people who longed for new things; wondered if they would ever happen and were not afraid to speak aloud their doubts and their faith. They can teach us how to lay claim to what we most desire from our lives, our relationships and from God. Join us as we step into 2018 ready to go beyond.
Chapel Worship, 9 a.m.
New Worship Service Begins, Sunday, Dec. 3, 9 a.m. Tradition…Renewed. The chapel provides a warm and welcoming space for worship. We think our chapel space, (made of recycled building materials, BTW) is a perfect place for worship. It’s an inviting space for worship that will be traditional, but freshly imagined.
Throughout December, for every new person who connects with us through the attendance pads or the Connect Cards at either service, a member of our church has offered to donate $10 toward our Christmas Eve offering. The more who check in with us for the first time, the greater that offering will be!
Sanctuary Worship, 10:30 a.m.
We believe worship is essential. It can bring us closer to God and strengthen our spirits. At its core, worship is a time to turn toward God with gratitude and praise. We offer a traditional worship service in a large sanctuary. We use traditional prayers, hymns and creeds to create an experience that offers reflection, praise, encouragement and challenge.
