Our Worship

Welcome to Haygood! We are glad you are considering worshiping with us. Worshiping God is our highest priority as we seek to make disciples of Jesus Christ.

WORSHIP TIMES and Location

We have one worship service at 11 a.m. each Sunday in our Sanctuary at 1015 East Rock Springs Rd. NE, Atlanta, GA, 30306.

What to expect

Our worship expresses a living tradition that incorporates hymns, creeds, a children’s message, organ, piano, handbells, children’s choir, and an adult choir. We offer the sacrament of Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month.

How should I dress for worship?

Come as you are. People dress formally and casually at Haygood. You will feel comfortable dressed in dresses, suits, ties, graphic t-shirts or jeans. You will not feel out of place either way. We are glad you are here!

Will I be welcomed?

We sure hope so! We work to be an inclusive church and to express the saving love of Jesus Christ to all people. We especially want to ensure our LGBTQ friends know they are welcome here. We hope you will find this to be true. If you feel excluded in our worship, please make our pastor aware so he can address your concerns.

Will my children be welcomed?

Children are always welcome in our worship services as we remember the words of Jesus, “let the children come” (Matthew 19:14). Our hope is to help them feel valued and included in the worship experience. If children get wiggly, between the front doors of our church and the Sanctuary, we have a room called the Narthex that provides space for parents to calm their children or give them any needed running room. We also have a wonderful nursery available for your children. We welcome infants through 2 years. Find out more about nursery by clicking here.

Each Sunday, we invite the children forward (about 15 minutes into the service) to meet with our pastor and children’s pastor at the front of the sanctuary. We offer a lesson geared to their ages. Afterwards, we invite children ages 3 years to kindergarten to children’s church in our gym. Children’s church is a fun time for the children to learn an age-appropriate Bible lesson and to engage in meaningful activities with other children. Parents/guardians pick up their children in the gym after worship.

Will my children be safe?

All staff and volunteers who work with children have been background checked and trained in our Safe Sanctuary policy that ensures the protection of children and volunteers. Our nursery workers are CPR and First Aid certified.
