Contemporary Service Q&A

Details about our new worship service
Contemporary Service

Why are we adding a contemporary service?

Our goal in adding this service is to provide opportunities for everyone to worship in the style that speaks to their hearts. Whether through traditional hymns or contemporary songs, if hearts are turned to God, then worship is true and beautiful. We believe this service will both bless our church family and welcome more people from the community to experience God’s love.

When and where will this service meet?

The contemporary service will meet every Sunday at 9 a.m. in our Multi-Purpose Room beginning April 11.

Who will be preaching?

The preaching team for this service will be made up of three pastors on our staff: Ignacio Cerda, Nathan Kocurek, and Joseph Gonzalez. As well-trained and experienced teachers, these pastors will guide us faithfully through Scripture each week, providing the excellent Bible teaching our church is known for.

What will the music be like?

Led by pastors Ivan Flores and Keith Tyler, the contemporary style of worship music will be similar to what you may have seen during Stonebriar Prayer & Praise and our Stonebriar en Español worship services.

Will there be childcare?

Our regular children’s programming will be available by reservation during this service for kids ages birth through kindergarten. We encourage you to bring your elementary-age and older children to the service with you so you can worship together!

Do I need to reserve seats to attend?

No, reservations are not currently required to attend our worship services—simply come and join us any time!

Will it be live streamed?

Though the contemporary service will not be live streamed when it begins in April, we are making plans to broadcast it in the future and will make an announcement as soon as online worship is available for this service.

How can I get involved?

We would love for you to prayerfully consider how the Lord would have you invest in this new ministry! In addition to attending the service if you feel led, here are a few ideas for how to participate:

  • Pray for those who will come and worship with us, asking that God would use all of our services to change lives and rescue souls with the Gospel.
  • Serve on our Hospitality Team to help make Stonebriar a welcoming place for our church family and guests.
  • Invite your friends, coworkers, and neighbors to worship with us!
