Worship Together Sundays

On the first Sunday of each month, our whole congregation - including Firehouse students and FaithWorks! kids - gather together for worship at Clay North. These special services are designed to be fun and family friendly and to allow time for families to grow in faith together. We take Communion at both the 9:15am and 10:45am services.

Nursery and children's ministries are provided for those in Kindergarten and younger.

Worship Together happens at Clay North.

WHEN DO I NEED TO GET THERE?

Services begin at 9:15am and 10:45am and it's a good idea to arrive up to 10 minutes early. That should give you enough time to park your car, get into the building, and find a great place to sit in the sanctuary. But don't worry if you're running a minute or two behind, we'll always have a seat waiting for you (and there are no bad seats!).

WHERE DO I PARK?

We have adequate on-site parking at both campuses and our friendly parking lot team is always around to help you find a good spot. Just watch for the smiling faces in the orange vests. On busier Sundays, we'll use the Swanson School parking lot for additional parking and shuttle service is provided from there right up to the front doors at Clay North.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Look around Clay Church on a Sunday morning, and you'll quickly discover that it doesn't matter. You'll find people wearing suits-and-ties and others wearing jeans and T-shirts. Dress as you feel comfortable. That's what most of us do on Sunday mornings anyway.

WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?

FaithWorks! kids (through Grade 5) meet during both services on Sunday mornings. Of course, they are always free to join you in the sanctuary as well. You'll check-in at the FaithWorks! counter near the cafe and be given a claim ticket for child pickup after the service. Kids will worship, spend time in small groups, and have a ton of fun with Miss Karen and the FaithWorks! team. If you're dropping kids off, give yourself an extra five or ten minutes to get them comfortably checked in.

 

On the first Sunday of each month, children in Grade 1 and up will join their families in the Sanctuary for Worship Together Services. These are family-friendly services and we will take Communion together.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS?

We're looking forward to meeting you on a Sunday morning very soon. If you have other questions, or if there's anything we can do to make your visit more comfortable, let us know. Email clay@claychurch.com or call the office at (574) 272-8068 and we'll be happy to do whatever we can to assist you.
