Nursery for Sunday Mornings
Join a Church Committee
During worship, we have a special time for our young disciples.
We love the sound of infants and small children worshiping among us. We have a hall tree full of activity bags to help keep your little worshiper engaged. If you prefer, we also offer a fully-staffed nursery from 10 to 11:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings (for infants through kindergarten-age children).
For the women of the church...
Our United Women in Faith groups are proud of their two Circles: The Alpha Circle meets on the first Tuesday of the month, 9:30 a.m., at the church; the Ruth Circle meets on the third Wednesday of the month, 7 p.m., at the church. No meetings July and August.
How Can We Pray for You?
After Trinity Sunday on June 4th, we will be exploring prayer during worship the rest of June. Each week we will focus on the contents of prayer, using ACTS, as in Adoration, Confession,Thanksgiving and Supplication. We will learn about and experience different prayer practices.
Want to learn about Tongsung Kido? Don't just look it up on your phone. Come, and we will share in this Korean prayer practice together! Hopefully, everyone who attends worship will discover a style of prayer that fits their faithlife and daily activities.
The Congregational Care Team is going to start a prayer group that will meet together in person. They will primarily engage in "supplication" or intercessory prayer where we pray for and on behalf of others. STAY TUNED for a START DATE.
If you naturally pray for others throughout your day, this might be a place for your gift of prayer. Prayer Group will meet the 2nd Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. and the 4th Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Comfort Room. All prayer requests are welcome but will not be on the web site or in the bulletin unless we have been given permission. Do you have a prayer request or celebration? Please let us know! Call or e-mail the office or Pastor Stephanie.
Prayer of Adoration is Awesome!
Sunday, June 11, Pastor Stephanie covered the subject of prayer of adoration and how often adoration is inspired by the "awesome" we see around us. She encouraged the congregation to find a photo that inspired such feelings. If you would like to submit a photo showing this, we will place the photos on this website. For safety reasons and to abide by regulations, please post only those photos of nature without identifiable people in them. You may send them to email@example.com. Please identify the location or supply a caption for your ONE best awesome photo as well as the name of the photographer.
The church has committees formed in the areas of Christian Education, Congregational Care, Missions, and Worship. If you would enjoy serving in any of these ministry areas, please join us on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 4:45 p.m. in Fellowship Hall.
At Holton 1st, we encourage small group studies. Bible studies are held throughout the year.
