Winterville Christian Church worships in the traditional style, but that "formal" style of worship does not inhibit our closeness, our friendliness, or our laughter. We use the word "formal" because we do use the lectionary readings for each Sunday; we celebrate each of the liturgical seasons, and our worship service is orderly. Yet our service does not feel cold or uncomfortable. We celebrate the Eucharist, the Lord's Supper, every Sunday. In this part of the service, as the bread is broken and blessed and as the cup is shared, we feel that in addition to the forgiveness of our sins we are now challenged to be the Body of Christ to all people. We are to take the table of hospitality to those who are sick, hurting, defenseless, and imprisoned in guilt and shame. When we baptize we use immersion, yet we recognize all forms of baptism. We are not a separate church that has to have things our way. All churches are different rooms in the same house. The Church is the house; denominations and tradition make up different rooms in the same home. So our church (our room), though decorated differently, is a part of the larger Church.
