what to expect when you worship at ecc

Two Services

9:00 AM & 11:00 AM Worship

Worship at Excelsior Covenant is the centerpiece of our life together. The experience of coming together to worship God is what shapes our life, community and service – it’s a meaningful and rich experience – one that focuses not on us but on God (at least that’s what we’re working towards) and on the good news of Jesus Christ’s redeeming love.

Our services are centered on Christ, are approachable and honest in their leadership, lacking in pretension, child-friendly, joyful in expression, and include preaching that is biblical and relevant to your daily life. The first Sunday of each month we celebrate Holy Communion in our services and all who desire to follow Christ are invited to participate. There is a breadth in style and music across generations and you will experience a mix of classic hymns to modern day artists and everything in between.


During Service

Worship is about one hour long. We use music, video, scripture, and relevant teaching to communicate the powerful message of Jesus Christ. It is our desire that you not only understand and enjoy worship, but also leave able to apply what you experienced to your daily life. Come as you are. You will see every kind of dress from suits to jeans.

When The Offering Is Received

Giving our time, talent, and money is an act of worship for followers of Christ who call Excelsior Covenant Church their home.

Concerning Communion

Communion is offered the first Sunday of each month. You do not need to be a member of Excelsior Covenant Church to participate. We only ask that you have made a decision to follow Jesus Christ.



Ushers will hand you a bulletin and help you find a seat if you'd like assistance. Relax and enjoy worship.

Go With Your Children

Children of all ages are welcome in our worship services! Childcare is available for infants through three years, starting at 8:55 am and ending 10 minutes after your service concludes. 

Early in the service children are invited forward for a special children's message. After this time, children may return to sit with their families, or attend children's church (age 3 years - K) in the nursery area, at the end of the west hallway, upper level. Please register your child at the kiosk outside the childcare rooms.

Get a Bible

Everyone is encouraged to bring a Bible or use an app on their phone. Bibles are available during worship services. If you don't own a Bible, you are welcome to take the one you use during worship home with you.

Go If You Want Prayer

People are available at the front of the sanctuary and the southeast corner of the activity center after the services and would love to pray with you. You can also write your prayer request on the connection card in your bulletin and place it in the offering plate or the black boxes in the welcome center and south entrance to the activity center. The Prayer Room is locate at the bottom of the east stairs and is available to anyone whenever the church is open.
