Under the leadership of Pastor Motomichi Harada we launched TMC’s Japanese language worship service on Oct 13. Now on Sundays other than the first Sunday of the month our Japanese service is at 9:30am and English at 11:00am. On the first Sundays of the month we hold a joint English-Japanese service with communion followed by potluck.

We launched TMC in April 2013 with the goal of eventually starting Sunday worship services in multiple languages, especially English, Japanese, and Chinese. Since then we have held English worship services preceded by Japanese Sunday school and an adult Japanese Bible study. In the past few years we have included sermon interpretation into Japanese twice a month. That was a transitional step toward starting a Japanese worship service.
