WE WANT TO MAKE VISITING EASIER FOR YOU!

Visiting a church for the first time can feel awkward. We want to make it as comfortable as possible. Here are some things that might make visiting us in-person easier.

 

We hope you'll take some time to browse around the website. Of course, we hope you'll choose to be our guest. You are welcome here!​

Time

We gather for our worship service (what in the Roman Catholic Church is called Mass) on Sunday mornings at 10 a.m.  

Dress

People dress in a variety of ways, from jeans and t-shirts to suits and ties. We want you to be comfortable. 

Worship

The service usually lasts about one hour. It includes singing (don’t worry–we give you all the words!), Bible readings, prayers, and a sermon.  Sometimes we have special events going on like a baptism, new member reception, or confirmation. It all depends on the day.

Children

Children are welcome to remain in the sanctuary throughout worship, and there are some coloring and activity books available in the back of the sanctuary.

Coffee

When the service is over, we invite everyone to gather in the social hall (we call it our Fellowship Hall) for coffee, juice, and snacks. It is our time for hanging out together and catching up with friends. You are welcome to come in and grab a cup of coffee and meet some new people.

All Welcome

All are welcome here! We are an Open and Affirming congregation, which means we welcome people of all sexual orientations and gender expressions into the full life of our congregation. Our Welcoming Statement is a testament to what and who we stand for.

Communion

On the first Sunday of the month, we celebrate the sacrament of the Lord's Supper (Eucharist).  Everyone is invited to participate in the sacrament–members, guests, kids...everyone! So you are free to partake, but you are also free to just watch.

Community

There is almost always something going on at the Church of Christ in Millis. Community groups use the space for scouting events, community choral rehearsals, AA meetings, and a variety of other uses. There are a number of small groups within the church that meet weekly or monthly as well. We offer many ways to meet people and get involved.

READY TO VISIT?

While you are welcome to join us any Sunday, Rev. James is available to meet with you before your first visit and answer any questions you might have about our church. Reach out anytime!
