Welcome...Here's What to Expect at Worship!

As you entered today you pass beneath the “Servants Entrance” sign because as a church family, we are called to serve Jesus and share His love.

We’re casual and informal, so please make yourself at home with a cup of locally brewed Cabin Coffee at our new coffee bar. Bathrooms are just down the hall towards the office.

Children are invited to hear the first part of the service which includes a Children’s Sermon. Afterwards, kids may head off to Sunday School or a staffed nursery, but also please know they are welcome to worship with you. The presence of children is a gift to First Congregational and they are a reminder that our church is growing.

The sanctuary is one of simple beauty and light. Pastor Harlan Seri’s sermons bring the Word to our everyday lives. As a former teacher before being called to the pastorate, he weaves Scripture, PowerPoints and an outline to help allow the message to resonate every day, not just Sundays.  “The Bible gives us answers to daily living,” says Pastor Seri.  Sermons are typically on topics such as “Overcoming Worry” or “How to Handle Daily Frustrations” but are based directly from the Bible.  Sermons are typically 20 minutes and also are available online at http://www.congregationalclearlake.com/sermons-2/

Communion is served the first Sunday of every month.

Sunday School for grades
Preschool through 5th
grade
from 10:15-11 a.m.
Children get to hear the first part of the church service and the children’s message before heading off to Sunday School on the lower level. 
Children learn to participate in the offering with the fun “Noisy Sunday.”
 
Adult Bible studies help quench the innate thirst for getting to know God. One is at 9 a.m. Sundays and the other at 10 a.m. Tuesdays.  Come as you are, drop in any time, Bibles are provided or bring your own.
