All Welcome


Each week, we offer a livestream of our Sunday 9:15 Praise and 10:45 Modern services. If you’re unable to join us in Platte Woods, we hope you’ll tune in wherever you are to experience worship through song and message.

Worship Services

Saturday Night Chapel

Saturdays, 5:00 p.m. in the sanctuary

A come-as-you-are, casual atmosphere worship experience. A pianist provides the accompaniment for traditional hymns and gospel music, along with occasional contemporary songs. This small, informal service is perfect for those looking for a small group of people who enjoy traditional church music.

Traditional Chapel

Sundays, 8:15 a.m. in the sanctuary

A small, meditative service including gospel and traditional hymns and anthems. Worship is led by our Jubilante Singers and the service is accompanied by organ and piano. If you’re looking for a traditional service, complete with liturgy and creeds, this is the service for you!


Sundays, 9:15 a.m. in the worship center

An upbeat worship experience with a variety of music styles, including contemporary Christian. Worship is led by our Praise Team with instrumental quartet. Our largest service, this hour is attended by people of all ages and interests.


Sundays, 10:45 a.m. in the worship center

Each week many different talented volunteers join Mat Thornton, Worship leader. Worship styles range from folksy acoustic to big electric contemporary styles.
