mandarin / cantonese service
          >> 9:30 am

The Chinese worship service focuses on drawing one's spiritual self back to the Lord. Whether with quiet meditation, joyous song, or with meaningful messages, we hope to help one another understand the truth and meaning of being a disciple of God and Jesus. The service incorporates contemporary music and songs as well as utilizing traditional hymn sing from the United Methodist Hymnal. The worship service is conducted in Mandarin and Cantonese.

We strive to create a dynamic experience that helps people of all ages seek a relationship with God through praise and worship, and ultimately connect with God. Our service includes a variety of cultural influences, including American, Chinese, and African styles of praise worship. The messages focus on subjects like strengthening our spiritual health and how we can become more socially active in the community. Each Sunday we take time to lift up prayers from the congregation.

communion – open table

As Jesus broke the bread and drank the wine with his disciples during his last supper here on earth, we partake in a monthly communion. The act of communion is an act of remembrance for the ultimate sacrafice Jesus has made for us. "...This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me." In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me."
(I Cor. 11:24-25)
