Christian Worship Service

 

As we look to care for the whole person we believe it is important to create opportunities for people to worship God and grow together. We gather on Sunday mornings so that we can take time to pause in our week, acknowledge God as a community, encourage one another in our life journey, and grow together in to all that God has purposed for our lives.

As a community of faith we believe that God has set for us, His children, a number of priorities that foster our ability to Love and be loved by God, Love and be loved by others, and be witnesses of that Love and the hope we have in Christ to the world around us. The priorities that we highlight as a worshiping community are; Prayer, Worship, Growth, Service, and Mission.

 Times

 If you would like to join with us on Sunday mornings we begin our worship time at 10:30 am and are usually done between 12:00 pm & 12:15 pm. Of course conversations continue well beyond that on some Sunday’s.

Style of Service

 Reflecting the diversity found in Rogers Park, Family Empowerment Centers enjoys a multi-cultural, multi-lingual church community. We offer a blend between traditional church and a small group gathering that is conversational in style. Our worship is often a mix of English and Spanish songs with a contemporary feel. We have a high value for Biblical teaching and a team of pastors rotate to lead the discussion of a particular passage of scripture.

While children participate in the worship time, we provide Children’s Church during the service for children ages (toddler through 5th grade) while the adults have their main teaching time. We also bridge the adult learning with what the children are learning in order to create conversational opportunities about the teaching throughout the week with their children.
