When you come to Merriam Christian Church on a Sunday
morning, the parking lot and main entrance are located on
the south side of the church. There is an hour of small
group study and a worship service each Sunday morning.
Childcare is available for all events on Sunday morning.
There is an adult small group/Sunday school that meets
from 9:00AM-9:45AM. This group is open and welcoming to
anyone who would like to engage in deeper study and
reflection of scripture.
A traditional worship service is at 10:00 AM in the
sanctuary located on the upper level of the building. After
entering in the main doors, proceed up the staircase on
your right to the sanctuary. This worship service features
traditional hymns, prayer, scripture, and a message. There
is an offering taken up and communion is offered each
week. The service takes about an hour to an hour-and-
fifteen minutes and is live-streamed as well. Past services
are available on the church Facebook and Youtube pages.
There is a nursery provided for infants and toddlers. Older
children are welcome to remain in the sanctuary and join
in worship. We do offer Children's Moments and Children's
Worship via Youtube every Sunday morning. Check out

During every worship service, communion is given in a
small piece of cracker and a small cup with grape juice.
These are self-contained self-serving sets, which you pick
up at the door as you enter. The communion is open to
anyone who would like to take it, regardless of age or
affiliation. As God's children we are each invited by God to
God's table to receive grace, forgiveness and love.
The offering is used to support the ministries of the church.
This includes outreach to the community and world,
supporting programs and ministries in the church and in
other churches and charities, and supporting our staff and
facilities. Guests should feel comfortable to simply observe
the offering. As Christians we believe that God places a
unique call to give on each person's heart, and if and when
God calls a guest to give, they are welcome to answer as
they see fit.
