Adult Worship Service

In February, 2012, our church began a regular worship service for adults only. It has become a lively and meaningful alternative service with special music and guest preachers like Dina Shaw and Gail O’Neal. In the past the service was offered every second and fourth Thursday night. Starting in September the services will be offered every second and fourth Sunday night, at 7:00 in the Student Lounge. On those nights there are no children in the building and the worship is clearly labeled as “Adults Only.”

We started this service because we believe that whoever you are and wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome in the community of Christ. In our work with victims and offenders we realized that a group of people were excluded from most regular Sunday morning worshiping communities in Madison because children are present.

In order to recognize the needs of children, parents and offenders, we started the Adults Only worship service. It is a full Christian worship service, with prayers, scripture, hymns, a sermon and an offering followed by a time for fellowship. It is just a little shorter. It is open to anyone in our congregation, or in the community, who would like an alternative style of worship.

We hope you will all try out this service. We like it. We hope you will too.
