September Worship Notes

      As the school year begins, no student ever wants to be seen as a misfit.  Instead, every one wants to fit in?  But when we consider the undeserved salvation available through Jesus Christ - we'll find greater appreciation for Christ and ability to navigate this life when we own up to being misfits for grace.  You are welcome to listen by way of video on our home page or join us for 9:30 am worship on Sunday.

     Following worship at 11am, Sunday School resumes with classes for children and teens.  Visitors are also welcome to try out adult Sunday School as well following the service.
 

Why worship? 

Worship is our heart's response to all the God does for us in Jesus Christ.  We do so together to raise our chorus of praise to God and to hear his word which is the source for wisdom and truth.  We don't shy away from the hard work of discovering how God's Word addresses issues relevant to our everyday lives of our world and culture.  This gathering time also offers a special time to share prayer requests and notes of praise together - reversing again the epidemic of loneliness present in our area.

What is worship like at Fruitport CRC?

Our Sunday morning service begins at 9:30 AM and lasts about an hour.  Our worship gathering marks the start of each new week with biblical, Christ-centered messages and PowerPoint presentations for added real-life application.  Nursery is available to age 3.  A time for fellowship follows every service in our family room where refreshments are available.

What is the music like?

Celebrating today's contemporary testimony in music & recognizing the rich musical history of the church, we use a blended format of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to glorify God and praise His name.  Our recently awarded worship grant will enhance our music offerings over time.

What should I wear to worship?

Please come as you are, shorts or suits, dresses or jeans.  Jesus is far more concerned about the condition of our hearts than the clothing we wear.  Our sanctuary is air-conditioned in summer to 72 degrees and plenty warm in winter to keep the chill away.  Guests and vacationers are always welcome as we are minutes from Hoffmaster State Park and several popular tourist destinations and campgrounds.

Must I give an offering to attend worship?

No.  Guests are welcome to put a contribution in the plate, but there is no such expectation.  As part of our worship - we typically take two offerings - one for the ministry expenses of our church and the second for a designated ministry.   We see this as a way of fulfilling our commitment to further God's Kingdom work.  With complete transparency - You are always welcomed to take a look at our deacons' bulletin board in the hallway to see where the dollars go.      

What about my children - are they included as well?

Yes.  We encourage children to become a regular part of worship -- During the service, we also offer coloring sheets and children's bulletins.  Following the service, your child is welcome to a treat and drink followed by Sunday School if you would like.
