Ousley Worship

Every worship service at Ousley is a synthesis of specific worship styles. While all of the Ousley worship experiences are reflective of both our Methodist roots and our Black heritage, each Sunday has its own conspicuous identity.

First Sundays------ Traditional Methodist Holy Communion Service
                              (More formal and more liturgical)

Second Sundays---Traditional Black Church Worship Experience

Third Sundays----- Contemporary Praise and Worship Experience

Fourth Sundays--- Children and Youth Worship Experience
                              (Energetic and creatively geared to the New Generation)

Fifth Sundays------ A Smorgasbord of Worship Experiences

Thematic worship enhances each Sunday’s experience through the liturgical colors, music, scripture readings, and of course, the proclamation. Each genre of music, which is from Bach to Rock, is chosen specifically to complement a particular style of worship. A unique entree on the Ousley worship menu is a special time of koinonia, where we meet and greet one another while moving from one side of the sanctuary to the other. Another menu favorite is the intimate time of prayer, when congregants rise to share their prayer requests and praise reports before moving to the altar and approaching the throne of grace. These dynamic experiences are often just as fruitful as a good therapy session. Whether it’s Sunday morning with the Ousley Acolyte Corps striding gracefully down the aisle, one of our six choirs (age and gender friendly), one of the four dance teams from the church’s dance ministry, one of the Ousley usher teams standing tall, the men’s parking lot greeters; or whether it’s the Altar Guild who works tirelessly to prepare the sanctuary or serve Communion all dressed in white, worship at Ousley is quite an experience. When a worshipper exits the doors of Ousley after the benediction, it is our hope that the entire person has been informed, inspired, and empowered through the catharsis of a transformational encounter with the Lord, with oneself, and with other worshippers.
