Worship at Memorial Baptist
From September through May, two services are held each week. You will hear the same pastor preach his or her sermon and use the same scripture texts at both the 8:45 a.m. & 11:00 a.m. Worship Service at Memorial. It is the style of music, order of worship, and bulletin that is different at the two services.
Early Worship Service: 8:45 a.m. – 9:45 a.m.
Style: This contemporary worship is held in the Fellowship Hall and led by Memorial's praise band, A Wing and a Prayer. You can expect any musical worship from hymns to U2! This service is held from September through May of each year. There may be other weeks where a combined service is held at 11:00 a.m., usually on holidays. See the latest church bulletin for details.
The Gathering: 9:30 a.m. – 9:50 a.m.
Whether you are just arriving at church for 10:00 a.m. Sunday School or leaving early worship, all are invited to grab a cup of coffee, a home-made treat, and mingle in the Fellowship Hall! This is a time to touch base with friends and to help new guests find a Bible study community! The Gathering is held September through May of each year. The Fellowship Hall is located in the main building, behind the sanctuary.
Sunday School: 10:00 a.m. – 10:45 a.m.
Infants are cared for on the preschool wing which is located on the left as you enter the building.
Preschoolers (ages 2-4) meet in the preschool wing as well.
Children in Kindergarten through Third Grade meet at the end of the west hallway in the last room on the left.
Fourth and Fifth Graders also meet on the west hallway, about halfway down.
Sixth through Eighth Graders and High School students meet in our Family Life Center which is located right behind the church on Judge Taylor Rd. It is the small white building beyond the playground.
COLLEGE: ask an usher for location.
There are many classes offered for adults on Sunday morning! An usher will be happy to help you find a class.
Traditional Worship Service: 11:00 a.m. – 12 noon
Style: This traditional worship service is led by our chancel choir and music ministers, Dr. Phil and Susan Morrow. You can expect to use hymnals for most songs and the styles can be anything with an international flavor to old Baptist favorites! Hold onto your bulletin for prayers and liturgies during this service that blends centuries of Christian tradition into beautiful worship. The latest bulletin, linked above, will give you an idea of what to expect.
Children are a vital part of our church family and are welcomed in all our services. The chatter of children in worship is beautiful music! If parents prefer, childcare is also offered during both worship services. Parents should bring children to the preschool wing, which is located to your left as you enter through the covered portico doors. Sunday School for preschool children and infants is also located in these classrooms. A volunteer will assist you in finding the correct room for your child.
