Worship & Eucharist
Sundays, 10:00 am
6501 Third Ave, Kenosha
Welcome to Light of Christ! We’re glad you’ve taken the time to visit us online and hope you’ll stop by a Sunday service at the Kemper Center soon. We hope this page will answer many of the questions you have about Light of Christ; if not, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What should I expect at a Sunday morning service
at Light of Christ?
You can expect to participate! We are a liturgical church, and “liturgy” means “the work of the people.” Your bulletin (service booklet) will guide you as you sing, respond, stand, kneel–if you are able–and come forward for Eucharist. Children and adults, ordinary people and clergy are involved in the leadership of our services.
You can expect robes, vestments, candles, biblical teaching, familiar hymns, and contemporary choruses. It’s a feast for the senses, and a way of setting apart our worship time from the casualness of the everyday. We appreciate what C.S. Lewis calls solempne, “the festal which is also the stately and the ceremonial.” (He continues “you must think of a court ball, or a coronation, or a victory march…; in an age when every one puts on his oldest clothes to be happy in, you must re-awake the simpler state of mind in which people put on gold and scarlet to be happy in.”)
How long does the service last?
Our typical Sunday morning services last about 1.5 hours. We occasionally finish earlier, and our special services and High Feast Days are generally longer.
What should I wear?
Our clergy may wear robes and vestments, but you’ll find a wide variety of clothing styles in our congregation. That said, most folks shoot for “business casual.” Whether you wear jeans and a polo or sport jacket and tie, you are welcome in our midst.
At Light of Christ, we encourage families to participate and worship together during the service. Teens and pre-teens may serve as acolytes, readers, musicians, singers, nursery workers, set-up/take-down team and altar guild members. During the sermon, we offer nursery for ages 0-3.
In the hour before our worship service, we offer Sunday School classes for all ages. Read more about Sunday School here.
How can I get connected?
We encourage you to visit our Events page to see a list of opportunities for teaching and fellowship. If you’ve been around for a while, we’d encourage you to get involved in one of our House Groups. We also host a regular Newcomer’s Lunch were visitors can have a meal with church leaders and ask questions in an informal setting.
