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 - September 19, 2021

Our gathered worship can be thought of as a conversation between God and his people. We come together every week to hear from God through his Word and the illumination of his Spirit, and we respond in prayers and praises both sung and spoken. In our gathered worship this week, God’s Word from the first chapter of Colossians will guide us in our worship together. First, we’ll open with Paul’s prayer (Colossians 1:9-12) for understanding, fruitfulness, and power as we give thanks to the Father. This leads to a proclamation of Christ’s person and work (Colossians 1:13-20) and prompts our response in song with Behold Him and Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery. Then, Colossians 1:21-23 reminds us again of the hope we have in the gospel and leads us to sing Grace Greater Than Our Sin.


After a brief welcome, we’ll pray for and dismiss all kids aged 3 yrs to 5th grade to Children’s Church and say a prayer together for today’s message. Pastor Andrew will continue his ON TARGET sermon series with a focus this week on Maturity and Calling. In response, we will sing Hymn Of The Holy Spirit. To close our time of worship we will pray for our Giving, and be sent out with some brief Announcements and a Benediction. Please tell us how we can be praying for you. Send your prayer requests to: prayer@meadowsfamily.org.


Find a couple of quiet moments to prayerfully reflect on the Scripture and songs above as you prepare for gathered worship this week. You can also find this week’s song playlist 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 — 5th grade, you can enter through our side entrance. There will be a yard sign directing you into our children's wing, and volunteers will be waiting to greet you and your children.

What else can you expect...

Expect to be greeted warmly. Our welcome team will greet you with warm smiles behind their masks. 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 helps our children know, love, and become like Jesus Christ. Newborns to 5th grade can be dropped off in our children's wing (the side entrance to our building) 10 minutes before the service. 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.
