Byron Center First Christian Reformed Church
Morning Service: 9:30 am
Evening Service: 5:00 pm
If you have not worshiped with us before, here is what you can expect.
Morning service begins at 9:30am. Greeters will welcome you as you walk in, and they can answer questions you may have. If you have young children, we provide nurseries for them if you choose. When you’re ready to be seated, an usher will assist you in finding a seat and provide you with a bulletin. The bulletin includes the order of worship for both the morning and evening services as well as information about “happenings” in the ministries of our church and needs/praises of our members.
Music plays in important role at Byron First. You'll find that a refreshing blend of contemporary praise songs and traditional hymns are used to praise God. Our highest priority is placed on proclaiming God's Word—reading the Bible and preaching God’s Word. Each service is centered around a passage from the Bible and the pastor explains what God expects from His people in return for His gift of Salvation to us. During each morning worship service, two offerings are received: one is always for the ongoing expenses of this church and our denomination, and the second offering’s cause varies from support of our church’s Mission Fund, Christian Schools and other outside causes that have been approved by our deacons. You are not required to put anything in the offering plate.
During the morning service, many of the children who are pre-kindergarten and kindergarten age leave shortly after the beginning of the service to go to Children and Worship. Worship services generally last about one hour. Between the morning services, coffee and cookies are served in the Fellowship Hall, which is just off the foyer. Please consider staying for coffee so that our members can have a chance to meet you.
Evening service begins at 5 o’clock. This service is very similar to the morning service, although somewhat more casual. Again, the service last about one hour. The membership of First Byron is a well-blend age group.
While there are many young families with children, we have single adults, middle-age empty nesters, and there is also a nice group of senior Christians as well. Whatever your age, visitors and new members will find many families of their own age. We think that you'll find First Byron to be a friendly church, where visitors and new members are welcomed.
