SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP PLANS

Hi CUC!

I love that my conversations with so many of you have been full of excitement for getting back together in our own building and beginning our post-renovation chapter!

To fuel this excitement, this post shares a diagram of our new Sunday morning worship structure for the 2021-2022 school year followed by some explanatory prose.

CUC SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP

September 2021 through May 2022

# Sunday      Traditional 8:30AM                       Contemporary 10:30AM

     1st              Chamber Choir                                Full Worship Band

     2nd             Motet Choir                                     Full Worship Band w/ Worship Choir

     3rd              Chancel Choir                                  Acoustic Worship Band                

     4th                 Instrumental & Vocal Solos          Acoustic Worship Band    

     5th              Hymn Sing Service              Multigenerational Family Focus

To resound CUC’s inclusiveness, the above diagram features a wide variety of musical expressions and ensembles with four different types of choirs and three different worship band formations. Furthering our goal of inclusiveness, some of our former thematic worship services will return, namely Cowboy Sunday and Pride Sunday. New thematic worship services will also be added to our curriculum, the first one being the multigenerational family-focused Halloween/All Saint’s service on October 31. 

The time and duration of worship services will shift slightly. As marked in red on the diagram above, we will now have an 8:30AM traditional service and a 10:30 contemporary service, which means that we will gather for each service a half-hour later than we did pre-renovation. As for duration, our Sunday services will occur within a one-hour time span, between 52-58 minutes, as opposed to the 70-75 minute average length of our services prior to the renovation.

Our music team is super stoked to realize our new Sunday morning worship service structure and to share and experience it with you in our newly renovated Sanctuary! Please be in prayer for our music team as we prepare for all that God has in store for us in our upcoming post-renovation chapter.
