Worship With Us

At Saxe Gotha, our weekend services are an opportunity to worship our Lord and for you to fellowship with other believers in both traditional and contemporary settings. Our services include a message, reading of God’s word and worship through music and prayer. We offer childcare during our Sunday morning services. The contemporary service is a more casual service in which a blend of hymns, Psalms and spiritual songs are led by a full worship team, while the traditional service is a little more formal with a choir, piano and organ. A variety of Sunday School Classes are offered for all ages, as well as evening and weekday programming and small groups.


In Person Worship

Each week, we have 3 services: the 8:30 and 11:00 am Traditional Services in the Sanctuary and the 10:45 am AWE Contemporary Service in the Light House Auditorium.

Online Worship

We livestream our 8:30 am Traditional Service and our 11:00 am AWE Contemporary Service. If you prefer to view the Traditional Service at 11:00, you can re-play the 8:30 service at that time or any other time. To view the Saxe Gotha Services and other resources, please go to: https://www.youtube.com/user/SaxeGothaPres. We would love to chat with you online during the services. Please turn on the YouTube chat function if you would like to comment.
