Worship at Cumberland First Baptist Church

Our goal is to fashion worship that invites encounter with the living God and inspiration for daily living. You'll find words that challenge, equip, and engage; hymns and songs that soar to the rafters; prayers that turn our aspirations outward to God and others; and calls to response that send us into the world with grace.

Songs, musical presentations, poetry, and visual artistic expressions are carefully chosen to enhance the tone and meaning of the worship experience. Our church is blessed with a variety of community members who share their talents in many ways.

What to Expect

Worship at Cumberland combines thoughtful faith ritual with lively and authentic expressions of community, as we strive to encounter God and connect deeply with one another. Through creative musical expression, art, poetry, dialogue and strong preaching, we aim to re-present the Gospel in terms both timeless and today.

Expect to be surprised, delighted and moved, as each Sunday a faith family encounters anew the gospel of hope and challenge.

While we treat liturgy thoughtfully, worship at Cumberland is informal and 'come-as-you-are.' The building is accessible and elevator-equipped. A nursery and children's church run concurrently with worship, administered by trained and screened staff and volunteers using the Shine curriculum and a mixture of in-house materials.

Note: everyone is currently required to wear a mask indoors, regardless of vaccination status. This is the best way to protect everyone until vaccination rates in our region reach safe levels.
