Worship empowers us to be Christ's disciples in the world.
Worship is celebrated every Sunday at 8:30 a.m. in the chapel with communion and 11 a.m. in the sanctuary. Following both worship services all are invited to a time of fellowship.
What should we wear? At Fairmount you will see everything - people dressed in their Sunday best, kids geared up for soccer, and everything in between. We want you come - as you are.
What is the style of worship? We avoid labeling our worship style, although many say that worship at Fairmount feels like church. We follow a regular liturgy (order of worship), but within that structure we try innovative ways to connect the good news of the gospel with every day life.
What about the music? While we take seriously our call to be stewards of sacred music, we have a broad understanding of what constitutes sacred music - spirituals, taize, world music, choral music, and classical music all can be heard on Sundays. Click HERE to learn more about our music program.
What about my kids in worship? Children are always welcome. Disciples of all ages are invited to participate in worship at Fairmount. The presence of children in worship is especially valued in our family of faith. Children's worship participation fundamentally shapes their identity in Christ and opens us up to the wonder, mystery, and sense of play that worship requires. If young children need a break during worship, the sanctuary rocking room in the narthex and church nursery (located on the lower level room 2) are availalble for babies and toddlers. Children are invited to start in the sanctuary for worship. Following the Time for Young Disciples children preschool through second grade are excused to WE Time (Worship Enrichment); they return to their families later in worship as the offering is collected. To learn more about why we believe kids need to be in worship, click here and here.
Here is the Guide for All of Us regarding Children in Worship. Printed copies can be found in each pew.
On the first Sunday of the month, Communion Sunday, we ask that all elementary-aged children remain in worship for the entire service.
