NEVER BEEN TO CHURCH?

Due to COVID-19 all in person worship, groups and activities are on hold.

We welcome you to connect with us through our online ministries and programs.

Join us on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. for our 'Live' Worship Service through our

Facebook Live and YouTube Channels.

Information found on this page covers what we have done in the past, we look forward to the day we can open our doors again. 


What should I expect on Sunday?



McKillop has 2 distinct worship services,

 

Traditional (10:00am) and Contemporary (11:30am)!

We start our services with announcements and both include:



            -Several pieces of music

            -A Time with the Children

            -Message from the Minister

            -Offering

            -Prayers



How long are church services?
Services generally last an hour.

We hope you can stay for coffee

(after the 10:00am traditional service)

or join us for coffee before the 11:30am

“Catch the Spirit” contemporary service.

What do we wear to church?

You are welcome to come in whatever makes you feel comfortable. 

Most people wear casual clothes, appropriate to the season, but you’ll see everything from jeans and T-shirts to suits and ties.

We love children at McKillop and want them to feel comfortable. 

Most children wear jeans, t-shirts, and runners.  Sunday School often uses paint, papier mache, glue, and other “messy” things. We also play games.

What about children?

Children are part of our church family and valued members of our congregation

(single parent, two parent, same sex parents, etc). 

At both services we have a staffed nursery

for children ages birth to 3 yrs — you may prefer

your baby to stay with you and that’s fine. 

Ask ushers for directions to the nursery.

Children ages 3 – 11 are part of worship for the first 10 minutes or so before they go to Sunday School. 

There is a table with crayons, paper, etc. at the back of the worshiping space and a basket of “quiet” toys for kids.  Sunday School is a fun place of learning for children ages 3 – 11.



Parents: you are welcome to go with your children to Sunday School and stay until they feel comfortable in their group. 

Some children would rather stay in worship and that’s OK.
 

Kids and noise go together -

we are glad children are part of the energy of McKillop



The last Sunday of each month (except Dec.) we have a lunch after “Catch the Spirit” worship.  This child-friendly meal (no nuts) can be enjoyed slowly as you meet new people or eaten “on the run” if you or your child have other activities.


What about offering?

We encourage people to make a donation in support of the work of McKillop as well as to help people in need in our community and the world.  We also know that in the ebb and flow of peoples’ lives, money can be an issue.  We invite people to prayerfully consider their situation and give out of their abundance.  You’ll find visitor offering envelopes in the pews if you wish to make a donation.  If you fill in the information, we will be able to give you a tax receipt.
