WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM SUNDAY?
Nobody has anything to fear or anything to prove at Generations. The gospel creates a safe, non-accusatory environment for sinners like us to consider our lives before God. None of us are finished products so we all need space to breathe, time to figure things out and a way to know we're making progress. Sundays at Generations are about creating space, making time, racalibrating and reorienting around Jesus.
You should expect to be honored as our guest by being given the freedom to participate on Sunday morning in ways that are comfortable for you and without pressure from us. Most importantly, you should expect to encounter the real Jesus in a meaningful way.
WHAT IS THE SERVICE LIKE?
When you walk inside you will be warmly welcomed. Coffee will be available if you're still waking up and there are signs to direct you to our gathering and where you can sign in kids for Next Generation (our children's ministry). Children stay with the adults for the first 20-25 minutes while we sing, but don't let that stress you out. We have a lot of young kids, so if that's you, you'll blend right in.
We start with a reading from Scripture and prayer, followed by 3-4 worship songs. We will then make some announcements before releasing the children and volunteers to go to their classes. That's followed by the message, always from the bible, always for your growth and encouragement, always about Jesus.
We respond to the gospel each Sunday in worship, by singing and receiving the Lord's Supper, which is open to any person who belongs to Christ by faith.
WHAT IS WORSHIP LIKE?
We embrace both the rich hymns from generations past and more current worship songs from our own day. Here is a sampling of songs we've sung in the last month, just to give you an idea:
- Lord, I Need You
- Build My Life
- Glorious Grace
- Give Me Faith
- We Believe
- In Christ Alone
- Great Are You Lord
- Death was Arrested
- The Old Rugged Cross (I Am Free)
- Come Behold The Wondrous Mystery
