Worship Services at Third
Third Church gathers for three services on Sunday mornings, all guided by our core worship values. Our services are at 8:45 am, 10:00am, and 11:15 am, all in the sanctuary with a common convergent worship style and form. We also host fellowship and worship by the Christian Arabic Church each Sunday evening.

Convergent Worship in the Sanctuary
Our convergent services bring together music and liturgical resources from our Reformed heritage as well as biblically-guided contemporary worship practices. Musically, you can expect a combination of praise songs and hymns, led by an eclectic and changing combination of (mostly acoustic) instruments, the Sanctuary Choir and organ. There's usually a guitar and some light percussion, and piano, flute, fiddle, accordion, bass, and mandolin are all in regular rotation, as well as regular choral pieces from the Choir and Alleluia vocal ensemble. Convergent service emphasizes a welcoming, family feel, but the aesthetics of the Sanctuary naturally lend an air of reverence, as well.
We celebrate the Lord's Supper, or Communion, the first Sunday of every month.
7:30 PM Fellowship and Arabic-language Worship in the Sanctuary
We are honored to have the Christian Arabic Church share our facilities each week for education, worship, and outreach to the Arabic-speaking community in Richmond. Click through to the CAC's website for more information on their schedule and ministry.
