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 (8:20 and 9:40 am) 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. Our musicians range in age from junior high and high school through college students and adult community members. If you are interested in serving on a music ministry team, please let us know.
In our Traditional Service (11 am), our musical worship is led by the organ and the Adult Choir. We love to sing the great hymns of the faith as well as some wonderful new hymns that have been written recently. 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 play instruments or sing during the service, so if this interests you, please let us know!
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.
