9:01 a.m. – Service in the Sanctuary. A casual, family friendly, worship format that honors our traditional worship space while reaching people with a timely message for today. The service features a relaxed atmosphere and attire; lively and engaging music; families with children participating; a children’s blessing and moment for children before they depart to age-appropriate activities for the second half of the service; and a time of prayer and sermon in the second half will allow adults to be fully present and focus on God. This service is designed make it easy and comfortable for younger children to participate.
10:00 a.m. – Service in the Combs Chapel. This service is more intimate, featuring soloists instead of choirs.
11:00 a.m. – Service in the Sanctuary. The most traditional of the three services in terms of style, this service combines offering, communion, a sermon, hymnal songs and music by the Chancel Choir.
Communion, also known as the Lord’s Supper, is the commemoration of Jesus’ Last Supper with his disciples. Communion is celebrated weekly at Country Club Christian Church, and all are invited to participate.

A Moment for Children is part of the 11:00 a.m. service, after which children may leave the sanctuary and proceed to the appropriate room.
