Worship Gatherings

At Common Ground we see following Jesus as a communal adventure where everyone ("the family") is involved in the spiritual formation process. One context where this is expressed is through our Sunday gathering, where our church gathers weekly for corporate worship, communion and teaching. Though these common elements are found in each weekly gathering, we actively submit to the Holy Spirit's leading to determine how each gathering will take shape. Most Sunday gatherings last for approximately 75 minutes.

Each Sunday morning gathering also includes a special opportunity for children (infant through fifth grade) to be cared for and engaged at their level. With the help of committed volunteers, our children's ministry provides a safe environment where children can be taught and encouraged by loving adults. Children are broken into age/grade groups to allow for age appropriate activities and instruction.

When you arrive on Sunday you’ll find the following classes for your children age newborn-3:




Conference Room


Teacher's Lounge

Children age 3+* and up begin the worship gathering with the congregation and are then invited to join our children’s ministry for age appropriate teaching in the following classes:



3 & 4+*


K - 1st Grade

Music Room

2nd – 3rd Grade

Computer Room

4th - 5th

Media Center

*This is for children who will turn five between August 1 and December 1

Based on the content of the sermon and the anticipated flow of the gathering, we will occasionally not dismiss the older children to their classes. Please know that when this is done it is done very intentionally with the expectation that the entire family will benefit from worshipping and learning together.
