Worship Services

Worship stands at the center of who we are as God’s people.

Because Iao United Church of Christ is a multicultural and multiracial congregation, worship reflects many different ways of expressing our praise and thanks and coming before God with our prayers and concerns.

We have a long tradition of choirs leading the congregation in worship. Young and old participate in the music ministry.

Worship is planned and led by intergenerational teams which plan and lead our worship. Church staff use their skills and gifts to work with teams and share leadership.
