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 FIRST CHANGED TO ONLINE WORSHIP WHICH "'PREMIERED" ON YOUTUBE AT 9:45 ON SUNDAYS. 
 
CURRENTLY, WE ARE WORSHIPPING IN MEMORIAL PARKK AT 9:45 ON SUNDAY MORNINGS.  WE TRY TO MEET IN THE SHELTER HOUSE CLOSEST TO THE CABOOSE.
 
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 summer schedule around Memorial Day Weekend.  During this time our Sunday School students and teachers alike get a break, even though that break began under unusual circumstances with this year's COVID 19 Pandemic. So, we'll begin our early worship on Sunday May 31 this year and hope that we can return to our normal Sunday School schedule after Labor Day in September.
One other change for 2020 is the absence of the traditional light breakfast on Summer Sundays.  We'll give that tradition a break for this summer and then decide whether or not to resume that practice in 2021.  Yes, things are a bit different this year, but we may find some silver linings among these clouds.
 
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.  Special music will begin at 9:30 and the service itself will begin at 10 pm.
 
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.
