Fall Programming at TCC Includes New Praise Service, Free Kids Programming

Family-friendly setting features contemporary music; Rally Day scheduled for Sept. 10

As Tewksbury Congregational Church approaches the beginning of its program year on Sunday, September 10, TCC is offering  two different styled services — a traditional service at 9 a.m. and a new praise service at 11 a.m.  The goal of offering the two worship services with varying styles is to meet everyone’s personal worship preferences.

The new praise service is approximately 45 minutes long and is packed with uplifting, contemporary styled music, powerful worship and an inspiring message. It offers a relaxed atmosphere with a family-friendly setting, and opportunities for kids to be involved in making music with the band.  

When asked about the praise service, Kait Bradley states: “The way this music speaks to me is so different than the way a traditional hymn feels. The music lifts my spirits higher. Being able to sing and praise without feeling like I am being over-the-top as if in a traditional setting, helps me feel free to be exactly who I am. I find my peace and I feel a sense of home.  This service provides a sense of welcome and community.”

Bobby Phillips, the praise band’s drummer, adds: “As someone who is newer to town and this church, everyone at TCC welcomed us in with open arms. This praise service adds onto that with relatable songs and messages that can appeal to anyone who’s looking for spiritual growth and community in their church.”

While youth are encouraged to participate in the 11 a.m. praise service, there is childcare for youth under age 5 in TCC’s recently renovated educational wing by a CORI’d adult.  

While we encourage youth to stay for the praise service, at 9 a.m. opposite the traditional service, TCC offers free Sunday School programming for all ages.  This free program designed to teach youth about God’s love and grace is offered in a kid-friendly environment, designed to be a safe, nurturing place for children. Each Sunday, devoted volunteers make sure kids have a blast learning though Biblically based, entertaining videos followed by crafts, projects, and fun and lively activities.  All youth are welcome and encouraged to come when they can.

At Tewksbury Congregational Church, with services at 9 a.m. or 11 a.m., the hour between the services always offers a social time with coffee, juice and weekly Perfecto’s bagels for all. Come meet church participants and hear more about what the church in the center of town can offer individuals, families and the community.  TCC’s motto is “All are always welcome!”
