If this is your first time worshiping at Hyde Park, we have two places to worship Sunday mornings: A Traditional Service in the sanctuary and a Contemporary Service called Crave. Our Contemporary Service begins at 9:45 am and our Traditional service starts at 11 am – each one hour long.
Here’s what to expect from each service:
Worship with us on Sunday mornings in our sanctuary. You may enter the sanctuary from Swann Ave. or from the education hallway. Our ushers will greet you, give you a worship bulletin and answer any questions you have.
Contemporary Service: Second Floor
The Crave Service, our Contemporary Worship gathering, happens upstairs in the Fellowship Hall. Enter the church building from the side doors and look for signs for the elevator. You may also find someone near the office area who will direct you to the elevator or the stairway.
Feel free to grab some refreshments; it’s ok to take it to your seat, too. The Crave service is pretty laid back, so you are also welcome to get refills anytime you’d like.
Communion is observed on the first Sunday of the month.
We welcome your presence with us as we worship the Lord. If you are concerned about what to wear, we do not have a dress code. Business casual describes what most of our members wear to the service.
A well-staffed nursery is available and our ushers will be happy to point you in the right direction.
We also have a children’s sermon early in the 11am service. Children, ages K through 5th grade, may then exit for Kid’s Kirk, held in an adjacent room. A clipboard of appropriate activities is available for children who remain in the service.
Answers to some questions you might have:
What to wear?
At the contemporary service, dress is quite casual. We want you to feel comfortable worshiping, so feel free to dress comfortably. At the traditional service, the dress is more formal. Most men wear slacks and a nice shirt; suits are uncommon.
What do I do with my kids?
If you have a child from ages 0-3, please feel free to drop your child off at the nursery when you arrive. Please check out the Nursery page for more information. If you have a child from ages 3 yr to 5th grade, they are welcome to stay in the service (children’s bulletins and crayons are provided near the entrance to both services) or participate in Sunday School. Please check out the Sunday School page for more information on age groups and times.
Do I need anything for the service?
Bibles are provided for the traditional service and relevant verses are displayed on the screen at the contemporary service. If you want to take notes, please bring a writing instrument.
