Things to know
Fellowship Christian Church is a vibrant church in the city of Burlington.
We're a vibrant church bringing glory to God through Christ centred worship and energized by the Holy Spirit to reach out in service to our neighbours! We're excited to serve our city. God is doing incredible things through the power of his gospel!
Many people in Burlington are experiencing spiritual renewal, while many others are still looking for answers. We are committed to reaching out to our city to make Jesus known, and to be a community where committed Christians can gather together.
What is the service like?
Fellowship Church is admittedly simple in its style. We're pretty much unplugged. What you will find is earnest spirits, open interaction, and a devotion to historic hymns, psalms, and Christ-centered preaching. Our desire is to maintain gospel-centered simplicity in worship as a way of glorifying God. We follow a simple biblical order of worship: singing, corporate confession, prayer, offerings, preaching and a celebration of the sacraments. Throughout, we focus on Jesus and our life in him.
We recommend you arrive a couple minutes early your first time to feel comfortable and settle in. Greeters at the door will give you a bulletin to follow along with the service and can answer questions you may have.
Ushers are available to help seat you, but please feel free to help yourself as well.
Coming with more than four people? The sanctuary can fill up so try and arrive early so as not to worry about finding a spot together.
Partway through the service, we collect financial gifts on behalf of various local and far-reaching ministries, missions and charities. Visitors are under no obligation or expectation to give. We encourage you to pray and pass the bag to your neighbour until you know us better.
Formal worship transitions into informal, spontaneous interaction with each other. Our desire is also to connect with visitors who may be with us for the first time.
We often serve refreshments after the AM service. Just follow the crowds! This is a good time to meet people.
What about my kids?
Childcare is available in the Nursery for infants and toddlers during all services. Visitors may be surprised, however, that children above age 5 ordinarily worship with parents here. We believe Christ values and receives both professing adults and their children into His covenant of grace. We delight to see little ones sharing in worship!
LITTLE LAMBS CHILDREN'S PROGRAM
Children ages 3-5 are excused partway through the morning service to go to the Little Lambs room where they will learn a Bible lesson with a leader. They also do crafts and learn songs together.
We aim to represent a tradition of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs that are biblically faithful, spiritually deep, and emotionally rounded. We usually are led by piano and occasionally accompanied by guitar/ violin/ flute.
Christ calls us to love God with “all your heart, mind, and strength.” We try to have sermons that are biblically saturated, theologically substantive, and personally formative.
We have been blessed with a new pastor, Hilmer Jagersma, in early 2021. He brings a deep understanding a love of the scriptures, a talent for story telling, and a heart of passion for the message of Christ. The focus of every sermon is how the text points to Christ or shows our need for Christ in all things.
Is there anywhere to go after the service?
Each week, families take turns hosting lunch for visitors and newer members. It's a great way to get to know others and enjoy some good food. The family is identified at the beginning of the service. You can also ask a Greeter for details.
