WORSHIP

"For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of God as the waters cover the sea." 

Habakkuk 2:14


Christ Church Mansfield is a worshipping community on mission to reach this and the next generation with the transforming power of the gospel. As a church, motivated by the gospel, we pursue this vision by committing to Inspiring Worship: loving God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, with joyfulness, both personally (Scattered) & corporately (Gathered)


As God calls us to worship and glorify Him, the Holy Spirit, by the transforming power of the gospel, sets our sights, affections, and our ambitions upwards towards God. 


Then He sends us out to all the places we live, work, and play, to be His people in His world, loving God, connecting people, serving the city, and reaching the world. 

OUR HOPE

We like to say that the gospel tells us that we are worse off than we think, but more loved and esteemed than we ever dared hope! You won't find any perfect people at Christ Church Mansfield. Maybe some good people, here and there.  But even then, they've only been made so by a perfect and better Savior, Jesus Christ.  It's all about Him! 


We exist therefore with a "not for us", but a "for others" mentality - for God and His glory, as well as our fellow man and their ultimate joy. 


Our hope is to be a place for anyone - long-time Christian, new to the faith, or skeptical and doubting Christianity - to come, belong, and grow in living out the Christian faith together. 


Spiritual skeptics, misfits, and mavericks are always welcome at Christ Church Mansfield!

CHRIST CHURCH KIDS

Christ Church Kids is where we care for our young children, Babies through Preschool/Kindergarten (Ages 0-5) with an engaging, service-long program of gospel-centered lessons, music, fun, and a snack.  All of our volunteers are trained and each has been screened for safety of your child as well as your peace of mind.  


Each class (Infants 0-2, Young Kids 3-5) has a schedule of activities filled with fun, fellowship, and an age appropriate gospel lesson. Check in at the Christ Church Kids desk and find out more when you come!


We do also offer our Gospel Journey program during the sermon portion of our worship for children ages K-6th grade. The purpose of the Gospel Journey is to provide our kids an age appropriate Gospel lesson during the adult sermon time. Our exceptional teachers will lead them through the Gospel Project curriculum that teaches kids God's Word from Genesis through Revelation. 

 

Kids will be dismissed right before the sermon and will rejoin parents for communion. Children can always remain with their parents for the duration of the worship service as well. We encourage our school aged children to participate in worship with the rest of us, believing that more is caught than just taught. This helps us live out our value of being a intergenerational and multi-cultural church that is seeking to reach this and the next generation with the gospel.


DRESS & ATTIRE

As you come into the worship sanctuary, you’ll come in and see some folks dressed up, and others dressed casually. Everything from shorts to slacks, business casual to baseball hats. 


What matters is that you’re here, not what you wear! 


So feel free to come as you are. 

MUSIC & STYLE

We believe that it takes an experience of beauty to knock us out of our self-centered orientation towards life. So we not only welcome, but celebrate the arts and expressions of beauty to help us reorient our lives around God and not ourselves.


One way we do this week in and week out is by singing songs that the church has been singing – whether for centuries or for weeks. Each song is selected by it’s lyrical theme and content, matching the sermon or particular service, and arranged by our group of musicians. 


On any given Sunday, we will sing something old, and something new; something familiar, and something just a little bit different. Great Hymns out of your favorite hymnal, and something from some great modern day worship leaders. But it is selected based on it’s  theme and arranged with thoughtfulness, and skillfully played with care for congregational participation, not a musical performance.

ORDER OF WORSHIP

We like to say that we are a “casually liturgical” worshipping community. This means that while we have elements of a more formal, traditional church – like responsive prayers, confession of sin, stating our belief with a formal creed, along with the preaching of the Bible and weekly participating in the Lord’s Supper – we  seek to do this in a way that is authentic, relational, and casual; we are not a very formal or rigid church. But we do hope to be anchored to a rich, historical tradition, while using timely, or contemporary, language.


For us, these are elements that help us retell and rehearse the story of the gospel, as well as anchoring us to the rich history and traditions of the Christian church throughout all ages; it’s not merely going through the motions of ritual or performance. 


Feel free to participate fully, or just sit back and take it all in. Skeptics, seekers, curious, and everyone else are welcome at any time!
