Summer Sabbath: From June 19 – August 14 we will once again observe a Sabbath of rest. We will gather on Sunday for one worship service at 10:00 (Nursery and Children’s Church will be available). We will not meet on Sunday evenings or Wednesday evenings and all committee meetings are cancelled. We pray that this will enable you to spend more time with your family and in rest, remembering all that God has done for you.

Worship is an integral part of our life at Houghton Wesleyan Church!  Each time we come together as God’s people is a celebration, and we emphasize making worship a part of our daily lives both corporately and individually.  We seek to worship God in a variety of styles and genres, including some services that are in a more contemporary style and others that are more traditional.  Whatever your preference, we pray that God is glorified and His people are edified in each of our services together! Our Contemporary Services (8:30 in summer; 8:20 and 9:40 am in school year) are led by a music ministry team, and we are pleased to use a variety of musicians each week, including singers, guitar, bass, drums, and an assortment of other instruments. In our Traditional Service (11 am), our musical worship is led by the organ and the Adult Choir. Our Adult Choir sings each week during the school year, and meets for rehearsal on Tuesdays at 7pm in the sanctuary.  Various members of our church family – including junior high and high school students, college students, and adult community members – play instruments or sing during all three weekly services. If this is a way you would like to get involved, please contact Amanda Cox. Beginning the last Sunday of June and continuing through the first Sunday in August, we practice Summer Sabbath. During these weeks, we intentionally practice a collective Sabbath rest. We cancel committee meetings and other gatherings except Sunday morning worship: one blended worship service at 10:00 a.m. We do offer nursery and children’s church (ages 2-5) ministries during the service.     .
