A WAY OF SEEING THE WORLD IN THE LIGHT OF GOD.
I was glad when they said unto me “Let us go into the house of the Lord.” (Psalm 122:1)
At the center of Christian life is worship, the gathering of God’s people to pray and sing together, hear God’s Word, be washed in the water of baptism, and be fed at God’s table. Worship ought to be rooted in the patterns and practices Christians have shared for 2,000 years, while drawing on music and on style from the diverse cultures of our neighborhood. All are invited and welcome to worship and to receive Holy Communion.
We are thrilled to have you join us. Here are a few things you may wonder about or notice when you come.
Children aren't just welcome, they are embraced! Sometimes worship can be fine dining but most of the time it is a family picnic. We know kids are in worship and make noise. That's great! It is the kind of noise we like to hear.
Come as you are. You will find people in dresses and suits and others in tee shirts and jeans. Just come. We don’t care what you’re wearing.
People make an offering. A part of our service includes people who are supporting the mission of our church. As a new friend, we don’t expect you to give so don’t feel any expectations or pressure.
People will probably say “Hi.” We love to make friends.
Communion. We celebrate Communion every Sunday. The First and Third Sundays of each month at the railing and the Second and Fourth by Intinction. We celebrate an open table which means that anyone and everyone is welcome. If you don’t feel ready to commune, don’t sweat it. Just know you are invited!
There are a variety of ways to worship God and all of them are amazing. Take your time and find the way that connects you with your need for God in worship.
