Worship Service and Church School Sundays at 10:00 a.m. with childcare available

Our worship service on Sunday morning is an hour during which we slow down, reflect, rejoice, and reconnect with our faith through inspirational scripture readings, sermons, music, and prayer.

The simple beauty of the Sanctuary, always adorned with fresh flowers, enhances our spiritual experience. Our ministers put the scripture lessons (often read by
volunteers) into context and use them as a basis for their sermons, along with the views of more contemporary theologians, thinkers, and writers to help us understand and react to daily issues in our own lives, our community, and the world. For more information, contact the Rev. Dr. Ed Horstmann.


Music has always been an integral part of worship at RHCC. Members of the congregation sing in our choir alongside professional soloists, who also perform as a quartet. Professional instrumentalists are also often part of the service, with anthems selected from a wide range of sacred music, from the earliest hymns to the more contemporary pieces. Every year, the church celebrates Music Sunday, where guest musicians share their passion with the congregation, and the choir performs a major work of music. Experienced choristers are always welcome to joining the choir.

Following the service, people are invited to a time of fellowship in the Parlor, where friends enjoy the company of one another, welcome newcomers, and share coffee and pastries. On many Sundays, a forum or other activity follows the fellowship time, usually ending by noon.

 

First Sundays at Round Hill: A monthly interactive spiritual celebration for all ages and all walks of life @ 4pm

A casual community supper follows the service at 5 pm. One family’s reaction to First Sunday: “We are a family with three young children and have been looking for a way to reconnect with a special congregation and church community . . Round Hill has created the perfect opportunity for families like ours. The “First Sunday” service is offered at the perfect time – 4:00 pm on Sundays – and offers the perfect blend of exceptional music and inspirational message that makes both children and adults feel engaged, uplifted and connected. We are thrilled to be part of this new and growing initiative.”

Children are invited to participate in the service. Toddlers and babies are welcome in the sanctuary and childcare is provided for those who may prefer to use it.
