What to Expect

Worship Services

Q: What time are your Sunday Services?
A: At the current time, we have two Sunday morning worship options.
~Our 10:00 AM worship service features more traditional music (hymns and some choruses) accompanied by organ and piano, as well as prayer time and a message by Pastor Jonathan.
~Our Modern Service at 11:11 AM in the Family Life Center offers a casual setting and includes more contemporary songs accompanied by the Praise Band, prayer and praise time and a message by Pastor Jonathan.

Q: Are there services other than Sunday morning that I can attend?
A:  Currently, the services available are both on Sunday morning.
A: A  Prayer Meeting is held on Wednesday at 7:00 PM at the church .

Q: I have young children.  Will they be disruptive in the worship service?
A: We provide infant and toddler care during the AM worship service. If you prefer to keep you children with you during the service, that is fine. The sounds of children are reminders of life…besides, most of us are (or have been) parents of young children. It’s not a bother!

Q: How do the pastors like to be addressed?
A: For our senior pastor, Jonathan Fehl, “Pastor Jonathan” is just fine.

Q: What am I expected to wear for Sunday Worship?
A: Some wear suits or dresses, others may dress more casually, and still others wear jeans and a t-shirt.  The bottom line is that we care about you, not about your clothes.

Live, Online Options

Q: What is “Watch Online”?
A: Our Sunday morning worship service along with other events and programs are streamed live over the internet.  For many reasons some cannot be here to worship in person and they join us online.  We value the relationship with our online attendees and recognize the presence of the Holy Spirit in our mutual ministry of worshiping and serving Christ.
You can access the live stream of our 10:00 AM Traditional service via the “Watch Online” link at the top of the page.  An online usher will be available to assist you and to speak (through text) with you to share any needs you may wish to add to our prayer requests.  The weekly bulletin, some sermon notes and an online Bible are available. The recordings are also available after the services.

Q: What is the CorryFirst App and how can I find it?
A: The CorryFirst App has been developed to connect with smartphone and tablet computer users.  Use it to find resources like our SOAP daily Bible readings, send us your prayer requests, and register for events. Text CORRYFIRST APP to 77977, or search for CorryFirst on the App Store or Google Play Store to download the app.

Q: Is there an option for online giving?
Yes.  Giving to Corry First can be done online through a service called PushPay and can be accessed here or using the “Give” link at the top of the page.

Children’s Ministry

Q: Are Nursery facilities available?
A: Yes.  Infants and Toddlers through age 2 may be taken to the Nursery Room (1st room past the restrooms from the Sanctuary).  Parents need to be sign children in and out with one of the attendants.

Q: Are there special children’s worship opportunities during the Sunday morning services?
A: Yes.
~For both services, our Children’s Church leader provides age-appropriate worship activities.~Kids from ages 3-9 are welcome to go to Children’s Church after going to the first part of worship all together with their parents. We ask that the first time the children come, the parents come back with them to get them registered and see where the room is. After that, they can just send their children back with rest of the crew for children’s church. We also ask that all parents pick up their children within 5 minutes of the end of the worship service.

Q: What Sunday School classes are available?
A: We have Sunday School classes for all ages.  The current list of classes can be found here.
