Sunday morning worship

8:30am: Sanctuary Service - this service is a traditional feel with a laid-back atmosphere. Music is provided through traditional organ and piano as well as contemporary gospel groups and other special music, including the Countryside Orchestra. Children are welcomed into worship through children's time, and the messages for both children and adults provide thought-provoking lessons and an uplifting atmosphere for everyone.


9:45am: Celebration Service - this service is a contemporary service held in our Celebration Center located on the west end of the building. It is a very upbeat atmosphere designed to help you experience the Spirit, with music provided by our lively praise band and worship team. A brief teaching message is provided to give the participants an uplifting inspiration to carry them through the week.


11:00am: Traditional Sanctuary Service - this service is the most traditional service offered at Countryside, complete with beautiful music provided by our organ and piano, in conjunction with our large and diverse choirs. Children are invited to participate in children's time, and an inspirational and challenging message is provided to help you learn about and connect with God. This is the most popular service attended by families with young children, but enjoyed by people of all ages.
