At 9:50 AM we gather for worship. This time of meditation takes many different forms as sometimes we listen to instrumental preludes (organ, piano, flute, brass), or we feature the music of different parts of the world (through occasional choirs that are formed for this purpose), or small ensembles (like the Rivera Family), or we sing through the Psalms from the month before.
The service begins at 10 am with the ringing of the bells and the procession of the light led by a young acolyte.
A different Liturgist assists our Pastor and Student Intern(s) in the leadership of the service.
Children are always welcome in worship and participate as acolytes, in the Children’s Sermon and singing in the Children’s Choir, which offers an anthem every 4 to 6 weeks.
During prayers and concerns, the congregation expresses individual thanksgiving and concerns and these items are lifted up in prayer throughout the week.
The sacrament of the Lord’s Supper is ordinarily celebrated on the third Sunday of the month and on special days and festivals (Easter Sunday, World Communion Sunday, All Saints Sunday, Transfiguration of our Lord, Reign of Christ, First Sunday of Advent, etc.).
