Sunday, January 14   ::   Being a Good Steward 
(Genesis 2:15/Mark 12:38-44)   God calls us to be good stewards. We often think this is about finances, but being a good steward also include things such as time, talent and possessions. We will look for ways we can be better stewards for God on this Stewardship Sunday.

Sunday, January 21   ::  Soil of the Heart 
(Matthew 13:1-9/Psalm 51:1-12) What is the condition of your heart? Just like different kinds of soil a seed is planted in will encourage or inhibit its growth; so we desire to have good soil. We will learn about the things that hinder our spiritual growth and look to way we can plant the seeds of spiritual growth in our lives.

Sunday, January 28   ::   Principles to Grow By 
In our lives we have many opportunities to grow spiritually. To take advantage of these opportunities we need some biblical principles to grow by. We will look at a few principles that will challenge and encourage us to grow spiritually.

Sunday, February 4   ::   Light a Candle  (Luke 2:29-32/Luke 2:25-35)
When Jesus was presented in the temple by his parents, Simeon was waiting for them. Simeon knew that Jesus was going to be a light to the Gentiles. We often light the Christ Candle to remind us of Jesus’ presence with us. On this ‘Candlemas Day’, our focus will be on how Jesus is like a candle that still lights our world today.

Sunday, February 11   ::   Bless You!  (Col. 3:16-17/Numbers 6:22-27)
How often do you say, “bless you” when someone sneezes? What does it mean to bless someone? We will discover that we are blessed to become a blessing for others. We will also take a look at Charlton’s blessing which we close with each week. 

SUNDAY WORSHIP at 8:30 AM and 11:00 AM

At Charlton, we prefer not to use terms such as 'traditional' or 'contemporary'. We strive to provide worship experiences that are uplifting and inspirational, and reflect a variety of Christian traditions.  Our music is chosen based on the theme of the day, incorporating cherished hymns of the past as well as newer songs of praise.

In addition to our Sunday morning worship services, special services are held throughout the year as we celebrate holy days such as Advent, Christmas Eve, Lent, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday.

Nursery care for infants and toddlers is available on Sunday mornings from 8AM until Noon.  Charlton Church is a SAFE SANCTUARY, with policies in place to reduce the risk of child abuse.

Psalm 122:1

I was glad when they said unto me, 'Let us go into the house of the Lord.'
