Our hope is that each person who comes to the American International Church might find a personal encounter with God and a sense of connection with brothers and sisters in Christian community.
Worship at the American International Church reflects our American roots with a casual atmosphere and interactive style that draws upon the rich traditions of our interdenominational, international community.
Our worship service includes spoken prayers, singing by the congregation, music by choir or instrumentalists, scripture reading, offering, and a message from the preacher that tries to explore how our faith intersects with our daily lives and the needs of the world.
Each weekly service follows a basic pattern, but the content and style vary. When you arrive, you will receive an easy-to-follow printed bulletin with all the words to prayers, songs and scripture for the day. We may emphasize traditional hymns one week and jazz or gospel the next, or you may find contemporary praise songs, music from Africa and an anthem by a classical composer blended together.
Children are always welcome in worship, no matter their age. In addition, we have a crèche staffed by professional childcare workers open from 10:00 am for children ages 0-4. During the school year, we offer a short children’s message during worship followed by Sunday School for ages 4-12.
We celebrate Holy Communion on the first Sunday of every month, and our table is open to any and all who wish to follow Christ, without regard for your membership status or Christian background. In the spirit of our international, interdenominational congregation, we offer baptism to children, youth and adults.
After worship, you are invited to stay for coffee and tea at the back of the sanctuary. There are usually some delicious goodies, and it’s a great opportunity to make new friends and meet people in the congregation.
