We're open for worship!

We are so thankful to be able to worship together in-person, and we invite you to join us! We have returned to one combined worship service on Sunday mornings at 9:30am. This time of worship together, including Children's Church for kids up to 5th grade, currently remains mask-optional. The last Sunday of every month is our Family Fellowship Sunday when we gather intentionally, kids and adults, in one service to worship together both as families and as the larger church family.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!

Prepare Your Heart and Mind
Preparing for Worship - August 7, 2022

We gather on Sundays as God’s people recognizing that it is a day for worship. “This is the day that the LORD has made,” says the psalmist in Psalm 118. “I will rejoice and be glad in it!” This is our call to worship this week, a call to claim this day as a day of worship, rejoicing with gladness in it as we sing Today Is The Day. Then, 2 Corinthians 6:2 frames this “day” even further, as Paul quotes the prophet Isaiah and then concludes, “Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” Today is a day of worship, because we live in the gospel age, the day of salvation through the crucified and risen Jesus Christ! In response to this truth we continue our worship as we sing Yet Not I But Through Christ In Me and God Is For Us.


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, Mark Barnes continues our Kingdom Come sermon series this week as he explores The Cost of -Following Jesus in Matthew 8:18-22. In response to God’s Word we will sing Christ Is Enough and close our service with a Benediction. 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


Take some time to prepare for this day of worship by finding a few moments for prayerful reflection on the Scripture and songs above. Pray that God will build up his church and glorify himself through our worship. 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 on 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.
