Worship ... Prayer ... Connecting ... Reaching Out
Sunday's Service begins before the "official" welcome and first song! We see "service" lasting from the first "How are you?" to emptying the leftover coffee. The music begins at 10 am.
Kid's Church is where children creatively learn the Bible. It is held for children age 4 through elementary grades during the Sunday worship service.
Prayer is a key element to life at Cottage Hill Church. The Prayer Service is a time of worship and prayer believing He will respond as we faithfully call out to Him. The Prayer Service is Wednesday nights from 7 - 8:30. In addition, there are Prayer Groups meeting monthly to give focused prayer to specific areas. Currently, there is a Prayer Group for the International Persecuted Church and another for those whose children have walked away from Christ.
Youth Group is a high energy time for Jr. and Sr. High students to meet to build their personal relationship with the Lord Jesus. As a Word of Life group, the teens are challenged to lively openly and allow God to stretch them. Their year includes a winter retreat and week at Word of Life Island. The Youth Group meets Wednesday nights from 7 - 8:30. A Tweens group serves those 10-12 on Wednesday night.
Next Step is a monthly ministry to young adults ages 18-25. Next Steps provides an informal time around the Bible and issues pertinent to young adulthood. They meet again each month for an outing.
Connecting with others. Following Jesus is a life shared with others. There are monthly events for women, periodic events for men, annual retreats, Bible Studies and other events to help us grow closer to the Lord Jesus and to each other.
Residents Encounter Christ reaches out to those incarcerated in the men's and women's facilities in Hampden County. Several from Cottage Hill serve in this local ministry offering weekend in-house retreats, weekly follow up meetings as well as a weekly meeting for those returning to life on the outside.
Missions is a hands-on part of life at Cottage Hill Church. Beyond supporting missions financially, groups from the church have traveled to China, Mississippi, Cote d'Ivoire, and Haiti. We are developing a sister church relationship with a church on La Gonave, Haiti.
