We invite your family to join our family for worship!

On Sunday mornings at 9:30am we gather together, kids and adults, to worship as families and as the larger church family. All kids age 3 and up stay and worship with their families, come up for a special Kids' Time, and get an activity bag of fun stuff for during the service. Nursery is available for our "Littles" age 2 and under, and there's a kid-friendly area in the Narthex, too. It is in our worship through Scripture, prayer, and praise, that we glorify God as we seek to to Know, Love, and Become Like Jesus Christ... together.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!

Prepare Your Heart and Mind
Preparing for Worship - December 11, 2022

Shout for joy to God, all the earth;

sing the glory of his name;

give to him glorious praise!


What a clear invitation to worship from the opening words of Psalm 66! As God’s Word calls us to come before the Lord in worship this week, our opening song echoes that call to come and behold Him as we sing O Come All Ye Faithful. This Sunday marks the third Sunday of Advent! The Swartzells will come and light the candle on the Advent wreath representing the theme of JOY, and we’ll respond together in joyful praise as we sing Born That We May Have Life and Joy Has Dawned.


After a prayer for our Giving and a few Announcements, we’ll have a special Kids’ Time and some activity bags for all of our young worshipers. Then, Drew Barnes will continue our Advent sermon series Good News of Great Joy with a look at Mary’s Song in Luke 1:46-55. We’ll close our time of worship together singing Away In A Manger (Forever Amen) and be dismissed with a Benediction. 


Do you need prayer? Please let us know how we can be praying for you. You can drop a prayer request card in the giving box in the atrium, or send your prayer requests to: prayer@meadowsfamily.org


Please find a few moments to prepare your heart and mind for gathered worship. Prayerfully engage with the Scripture and songs for this week and pray that God will build up his church and glorify himself through our worship together. This week’s song playlist can be found on Spotify and YouTube. Everything you need to know about our Sunday worship services can be found on our website at meadowsfamily.org/sundays


See you this Sunday!

What to Expect When You Join Us In-Person

When you come, please come in through the Main Entrance.  That entrance has glass doors with a big WELCOME sign over them.  If you are dropping off children newborn-two (Littles), you can enter our side entrance. Littles can be dropped off 10 minutes before the service begins. 

What else can you expect...

Expect to be greeted warmly. Our welcome team will greet you with warm smiles. We hope you feel welcomed and cared for, especially as we emerge from a pandemic. Feel free to ask questions of our welcome team, or stop by the welcome center for more information about our church.

Expect to see a range of attire. From suits & dresses to jeans & tees, come dressed comfortably for you. While we come to worship God and believe He is worthy of our best, we also believe that he cares far more about our hearts than our clothes.

Expect children to be valued and cared for.  We value children and want them to feel that they're a part of our family. During our 9:30 service, our team of volunteers help our children know, love and become like Jesus Christ. The last week of each month, we have our Family Fellowship Sunday. For that week, we keep the kids in our service and add kid-friendly elements that help us all connect as the family of God.  

Expect to sing. God’s people have always been singing people, and songs are a fantastic way to express our thoughts and feelings about God and to God. Each week we sing a mix of songs from hymns of the church to modern worship songs.

Expect to pray. Prayer is simply talking to God. We believe God delights to hear us talking with Him and that He works through our prayers. Prayer changes things. Prayer changes us. Most of the time, someone will be leading prayer from the front, but there are times, especially during our Family Fellowship Sundays, when we encourage praying together as the whole fellowship.

Expect teaching from the Bible. We believe the Bible is God’s inspired communication to us. In the Bible, we most clearly find what God has revealed about Himself and His desires for us. Each week, we take time to hear what God has to say, and we strive to apply His word to our lives in practical ways.

Expect to meet people who genuinely care about you. We call our church a fellowship because “fellowship” is an essential description of churches in the Bible. The biblical meaning of fellowship can be summed up by saying we love each other. We’re not perfect, but we do try to love each other as God has loved us. That love spills over to whoever walks through the door.
