WORSHIP at Christ Our Anchor
Worship at COA

Worship at Christ Our Anchor is characterized by a variety of styles, patterns and opportunities. On Sunday we celebrate gathering in God’s house with a Traditional and a Contemporary service. During the course of the year we also gather for special moments in the life of the community, such as, Holy Week, Blessing of the Animals, Veterans Day service, Blue Christmas and other opportunities to gather as the people of God.

During our Sunday Services, there is ample opportunity for the inclusion of children and youth. We also provide the opportunity for the community to express its concerns joys and celebrations of life so that we can nurture and care for each other as a faithful gathering of God’s people.

On the first Sunday of the month, we celebrate the Lord’s Supper, a table that is open to all.

Traditional Worship

At Christ Our Anchor, traditional worship is rooted in historic patterns of worship within the Presbyterian Church, while allowing for the full expression of gifts by the use of a variety of music, liturgical resources and contemporary language. With an enthusiastic choir supporting the service, supplemented by bells, inclusion of Children’s moments and other special times in the life of the church, our Traditional service bridges the history of the church with the future of God’s people.

Contemporary Worship

Contemporary worship at Christ Our Anchor is an upbeat mixture of contemporary, secular and classic music. Powered by a high energy band, the service honors our traditions with prayer, scripture and reflection while bringing opportunities for different expressions of worship alive in our sanctuary. While encouraging the diversity of worship for our community, we remain rooted in our faith and reformed tradition.
