Worship

We are located at 150 North Oak Street, Ottawa, OH.  Our office phone is (419) 523-3694. 
 
Sunday morning worship is held in the sanctuary on the second floor of the church.
NOTE:  DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC WE HAVE HAD TO ADAPT NUMEROUS TIMES.  wE HAVE DONE FACEBOOK LIVE, YOUTUBE WORSHIP SERVICES AND WORSHIPPED TOGETHER AT MEMORIAL PARK THROUGH THE SUMMER MONTHS.  
 
WE RETURNED TO WORSHIP IN OUR OWN SANCTUARY AS OF OCTOBER 11.  CHANGES MAY BE NECESSARY AT ANY TIME..
 
SUNDAY SCHOOL IS NOT MEETING. 
 
WE ARE LEARNING A LOT OF NEW TECHNOLOGY AND OUTREACH OPTIONS AT THIS TIME--SO THINGS CHANGE RAPIDLY!  STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES, PLEASE.
 
Generally, we move to a "winter" schedule on the Sunday following Labor Day.  We delayed that change this year as we worshipped together outdoors at Memorial Park through October 4.  At that point, weather forced back indoors.  Worship services then moved to the typical 10:45 am time slot for the school year term.  For safety reason's our Christmas Eve service was offered via YouTube.
We will see what other changes unfold as we continue our pandemic journey together.

You can never be sure what resources will be used in worship--ranging from traditional hymns of centuries past to contemporary music to liturgical dance to drama.
  
Special evening services are also scheduled prior to Easter on Holy Thursday and Good Friday.  There have often been community services as well.
 
Special services are also held on Christmas Eve.  In 2020, there will be one service.  Unlike most years when pecial music begins at 9:30 and the service itself begins at 10 pm, we will have an earlier virtual worship service beginning at 7:30 pm.  Some special music will precede the service.
 
Specific times of special services are available on the calendar portion of this website.
 

Sunday School--Sunday school begins at 9:30 am most Sundays from the Sunday following Labor Day in September through the Sunday before Memorial Day in May.  We are lucky to have talented and dedicated Sunday School teachers for our children--God's children of ALL ages.  We do try to schedule some breaks through the school year to give time off to students and teachers alike.    SUNDAY SCHOOL IS ON HOLD DURING COVID
