Front Title

Wholly Worship

We bring our whole selves to worship to be immersed in Christ’s holy-making power. This service draws from the whole of our tradition across time. Led by our wonderful choir, organ, piano and bells, with liturgical prayer and strong preaching, we are drawn into the presence of God to be made whole.

Faith Formation

Sylvania First is a great place for all ages to grow in their faith. Children, youth, and adults all have their own opportunities during the 9:30 Wholly Worship time.
A safe, loving environment can help guide each individual into a relationship with God and also with others who walk alongside.
During the 11:00 Experience! Worship, all generations worship and learn together with a unique experience in Common Ground while a traditional Bible Study for adults is also meeting.

Experience! Worship

We Experience! worship with children of all ages. Our unique inter-generational blend helps us to Experience! Christ face to face in a hands-on way. Led by our exceptional Praise Band with conversational prayer and interactive preaching, we Experience! the power of Christ to make us new.
