The two worship spaces each set the tone for worship at First Church. The Great Heritage traditional service is held in the sanctuary on the main floor of the building. The Chancel Choir and organ lead the music and congregational singing uses the hymnal. Often worship music is augmented by other groups such as bells, vocal or instrumental soloists, or liturgical dancers.
The Bridge contemporary service is held in the fellowship hall in the basement in an informal gathering with round tables. Snacks are provided. The music is lead by the praise band. Congregational singing uses a screen. The sermon is the same in both services. And there is a special children's time in both services.
