Our congregational worship service
is at 10:45 am on Sundays, during which we collectively praise God,
pray, listen, and respond to God. Our approach to music is what
many call “blended,” meaning that we sing both contemporary and
traditional songs about God and our experiences in following Him.
Nursery space is available at the back of the sanctuary for parents who
need to occupy children during the service. Some of our other
ministries and programs are the following.
- Adult Sunday School
(Sunday 9 :45 am, Ed. Building): Currently we are working through a
Navigators study based on their well-known Design for Discipleship
- Children's Sunday School
(Sunday 9 :45 am, Ed. Building): If you are going to be visiting
with children who will want to participate in Sunday School, let us
know in advance if you can.
- Bible Study
(Sunday 7:00 pm, Ed. Building): Pastor Ansley leads a study of
scripture or topics on church history and beliefs. Our topic this Fall is the book of Romans.
- Youth Meeting (Sunday
4:00 pm, Ed. Building or Slusser's Chapel): Each
week Middle and High School students from our congregation and
Slusser's Chapel gather for a time of Bible Study
and fun. They are led by congregational volunteers who do their
best to let the students know they are loved by them and God, and teach
them what the Scriptures have to say about issues they are dealing with
in school and life. Youth also plan for their participation in
events involving other local Church of God congregations, as
well as State and International gatherings.
- Women of the Church of God (3rd Sun. each month, following worship): Our local chapter of the Virginia WCG program
is dedicated to service ministries and support of missionary
activities. Watch the calendar for associated special events.
- Prayer Chain:
When urgent needs arise, these are communicated through the
congregation for immediate prayer. If you have a request for the
prayer chain, click here
to a send a message with your request. (See Agness Chandler
to be added to the telephone branch of the chain; contact Marty to be added to the e-mail branch of the chain.)
- Heritage Hall Ministry: Once a month (usually the third Saturday of each month, but check the calendar) we visit Heritage Hall
for our "senior dance party" sharing music, love and laughter with the
residents. For those residents who wish, we slowly push their
wheelchairs around the "dance floor" to various types of recorded
music. We also have persons playing various instruments and
singing with the residents. Following our fun time we provide
them with light, homemade refreshments. Individuals and
organizational groups are always needed to help us in this fun event
and are most welcome to join us.
