We usually begin with a song or two, a greeting from our Pastor, and then more singing. Our worship leader mixes familiar choruses and hymns with newer praise songs in a worshipful style. We also have a Praise Team, Choir, and Orchestra. We are privileged to have some incredibly talented people involved in our Music Ministries. Our services are broadcast live on the internet and at 95.9 FM WNPQ. Our services are also telecast (with a one week delay) on several channels throughout Northeast Ohio. For a list of these channels, visit the radio/television section of our website. Yes, it’s true, you may be on television if you visit our service. Some people love that, but it makes others nervous. If you’d rather not be “in pictures” you may wish to sit under the balcony or in the balcony.
We usually receive the offering somewhere during the singing, and then Pastor Frazier comes to share the message.
We sometimes use drama, special music, and video to enhance the service, and Pastor Frazier uses PowerPoint to make his messages easy to follow. It also makes note-taking easier for those who like to keep notes. As the Pastor reads the text from the Bible, the words are shown on the screen so that you can follow along.
Service ends with a time of “invitation,” where you are welcome to come and pray on the steps at the front of the auditorium. This is never a long, awkward time, but rather a brief period where anyone can come to pray about what’s on their heart. If you do come up to pray, chances are that someone will join you after a few minutes and ask if you’d like them to pray with you. It’s fine to say “no, thanks” if you’d rather pray alone.”
