Unified in Christ,
we actively seek to create harmony in a diverse community
Sunday in the Sanctuary
Sunday Worship at Erin is a unique blend of traditional Reformed liturgy, contemporary music, prayers of the people, and other elements.
Rather than segregating communities of worshipers by taste (traditional, “praise & worship“, etc), we have chosen the more difficult path: inclusiveness and openness to a variety of worship styles and tones within the context of a single family of faith.
We encourage you to experience it for yourself.
Communion (The Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper) is celebrated the first Sunday of each month and at special liturgical times during the year.
Our professionally-staffed nursery opens at 9:30 am to welcome children up to two years old. Check out the schedule of lessons for this year!
Planet Worship is Erin’s Children’s Church program for children ages 4 years old through 4th grade. Children attend worship with their parents for the first half of the service. After the family sermon and Praise Song, children are dismissed to Planet Worship, which is held in the Family Life Center.
This program is designed to teach our children why we worship and how we worship. Find out more.
Erin offers a rich program of Christian education on Sunday mornings for learners of every age.
Whether you are in preschool, grades K-12, or an adult, you’ll find a class eager to welcome you. Find out more.
Erin’s youth groups explore what it means to follow Christ in today’s complex world. On Sunday nights, our youth meet to discuss important questions together and bring Jesus’ perspective to the decisions they make every day. There’s fun, opportunities for service, and serious study, too. Both groups also participate in outreach events, lock-ins, and retreats.
Middle School Youth Group meets Sundays 4:45-5:45 pm.
High School Youth Group meets Sundays 5:45-7:00 pm.
Join Us for Dinner, Wed. 5:45 pm
Wednesday nights from September through May offer Erin’s famous “Wednesday Night Dinner.” Everyone is welcome!
Our super-talented (or should we say, “supper-talented”) Dinner Team led by Dan and Betty Gibbs, serve up a great time of food and fellowship to get our Wednesday Night activities off on the right foot. The menu is different every week and includes “just for kids” options.
Reservations are requested and a donation of $5 per adult and $2 per child is recommended. To reserve your spot, contact the Church Office at 865-588-5350.
