What to Expect

Everyone is welcome at the Fishcreek Church of the Nazarene. Whether you are simply seeking to understand what the church is all about, to discover who Jesus is, or are looking for a new church home, we would be delighted to have you share in our worship service.

Attire

People often ask, What should I wear to church? Don't worry, when you arrive you will find people dressed in all kinds of attire. There are those who like to dress up a bit to come to church, but there are also those who are comfortable in their every-day gear. Come and be comfortable. We are about worshipping God, not modeling our wardrobe!

Worship Service

Our worship services are every Sunday at 10:45 A.M.

If you have children they are welcome in our worship service. If you wish, they may join our  children about mid-way through the service as they are dismissed to attend a worship experience designed just for them in our Children's Chapel.  Infant and toddler care is provided during all service times.

Music

Please, come in and make yourself at home. Our services usually begin with a time of music led by our praise band in which people may stand or choose to sit. The songs are usually a mixture of familiar titles along with some that might be new to you. If you know the songs, please sing with us, if notdon't worry about it and just relax and enjoy the experience. 

Offering

During most services we will have a time of offering. Sharing our resources with the Lord remains an important part of Fishcreek's worship. We do not expect visitors to participate.  We want our guests to feel completely at ease whether they give or not.  

Sermon

Most Sundays Pastor Fred will share a mesage from the Bible. If you have a Bible, you are welcome to bring it with you. A lot of people use e-versions of Bibles in their phones and other electronic devises these days. If you don’t have any of these, don’t worrythe text is projected on a screen large enough that everyone can follow along.  The sermon seeks both to teach and to inspire, to offer both guidance and motivation.  Our goal is for the Scriptures to literally come alive in your heart and mind!

Prayer

There may be a time during the service when the pastor invites people to come down the front to an altar for a special time of prayer. This is not required but should you desire someone to pray with you, you are always welcome.

Communion

Once a month our worship service includes a time to celebrate Communion. You don't have to be a member of the church to take part, but the pastor will generally ask whether you are a follower of Jesus Christ. This is a good time to reevaluate where you are in your spiritual walk. Maybe you need to make a recommitment to the Lord, and taking part in Communion may become this affirmation. Simply listen to the instructions given by the pastor and, as a confessed follower of Christ, you are welcome to participate.
