Worship Services

The Glenview New Church offers two worship services each Sunday morning. One is a Contemporary Worship Service and the other is a Traditional Worship Service (see descriptions below), except on the following dates when we offer one Festival Service or Combined Service for families of all ages at 11:00 a.m. These Festival or Combined Services may include special music and pageantry. All are welcome to attend.

Here are the dates when we offer one Sunday service:

  • Palm Sunday: Festival Service, 11:00 a.m.
  • June 19th (the Sunday nearest June 19th): Festival Service, 11:00 a.m.

  • Memorial Day weekend: Combined Service, 11:00 a.m.

  • Labor Day weekend: Combined Service, 11:00 a.m.
  • Sunday, October 30: Combined Service, 9:30 a.m.

  • Thanksgiving Day: Festival Service, 11:00 a.m.

  • Thanksgiving Sunday (the Sunday after Thanksgiving Day): Combined Service, 11:00 a.m.

  • Christmas Eve: Festival Service, 5:00 p.m.
  • Christmas Eve: Candlelight Service, 10:00 p.m.
  • Christmas Day: Traditional Worship for adults, 11:30 a.m.

  • Christmas Sunday (the first Sunday after Christmas Day--even if it's a full week later): Combined Service, 11:00 a.m.

Contemporary Worship at 9:30 a.m.

Our 9:30 a.m. Contemporary Worship Service features contemporary songs, music, and choral pieces led or performed by a music team, accompanied by guitar, piano, and other musical instruments. The first part of the service includes an interactive and illustrative lesson for children, after which the children leave the worship room for nursery or Sunday School (according to age). The second part of the service includes a talk for adults. Communion is offered occasionally at the end of this service, and all are welcome to participate. During the summer months (from Memorial Day through Labor day) our Sunday School teachers take a break from the Sunday School programs, and this service becomes a combined service for families, offering a combined talk for children and adults. Refreshments and social time follow each and every service of the year.

Traditional Worship at 11:00 a.m.

Our 11:00 a.m. Traditional Worship Service is a traditional service for adults in our church sanctuary. It is a liturgical service with traditional hymns led by a pipe organ. This service carries an atmosphere of formal reverence that many people appreciate. Communion is offered occasionally at the end of this service, and all are welcome to participate. Social time follows each service with occasional refreshments.
