ABOUT  OUR WORSHIP

We welcome everyone as a child of God. We seek to create worship services that renew and transform our hearts and minds for God's work.

Our Worship

We worship online and in person.

 

Join us every Sunday at 10:30 am on Facebook.

You are invited to create your own worship space and to join in the ritual movements of the service:

  • Have a candle to light, signifying Christ’s presence with us.

  • Have food and drink for communion. This may be anything you have available. Whatever it is, it is holy.

Join us in our new worship space every Sunday at 10:30 am.

If you plan to join us:

  • You must wear a mask

  • Stay home if you have a fever over 100, have been exposed to COVID-19, or are experiencing COVID like symptoms

  • We will provide prepackaged communion but you are also welcome to bring your own communion supplies from home.

  • Read the full guidelines here

We welcome everyone as a child of God. We seek to create worship services that renew and transform our hearts and minds to God's work. The Communion Table is central to our worship. Every worship service includes communion. At the Table we remember and celebrate God’s love and grace made manifest in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Our services include a mix of traditional and contemporary worship styles and include music, praise, prayer, and a weekly message from our pastor. Our music draws from a variety of styles from traditional hymns and contemporary praise songs to classical and jazz performance pieces. 

We hope you will join us as we build community through worshiping our God.

Upcoming Worship Series

God's Justice Sept 20 - Oct 4

September 19, 2020

“Israel, are my ways unfair? Is it not your ways that are unfair?” – Ezekiel 18:29

 

We talk a lot about justice. People protest in the streets and online in the name of justice. As children, we demand fairness from peers, parents, and teachers. As adults, we demand justice from our government, from the courts, from one another. But, too often, what we really mean by fair or just is that we get our own way. We pay little attention to whether everyone else is getting what they need too. God’s justice, however, sets our own demands aside and calls us to look at the world in a different way. To find true justice where all experience the dignity accorded to God’s children. To find true fairness where everyone has what they need, no more and no less.

Expansive Love Aug 23 - Sept 13

August 07, 2020

“Owe no one anything, except to love one another… Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore, love is the fulfilling of the law.” – Romans 13:8, 10

 

We are the church. We are called by God to be followers of Jesus. But what are we called to do? How are we to live out our faith? These last months have reminded us how deeply we are impacted by the lives of those around us and how we impact them. It has shown us that the discrete circles we’ve created or independent lives we’ve tried to lead are illusory. We are connected and God wants us to be connected. As the church, we are called to participate in God’s ever expansive love, to create and nurture connections in new ways.

Stories that Form Us July 19 - August 9

July 17, 2020

“Jesus told the crowds all these things in parables; without a parable he told them nothing. This was to fulfill what had been spoken through the prophet:

‘I will open my mouth to speak in parables;

I will proclaim what has been hidden from the foundation of the world.’”

 – Matthew 13:34-35

The stories we tell about ourselves and our communities shape us; they let us know who we are and how we should live. They tell us truths about the world. In every story we hear deep truths that speak across ages. Yet, sometimes we need to hear these truths in new ways. We need to retell our stories so that we can see their heart again.

But Jesus...
September 5 - October 17, 2021

“You do not know what you are asking.” – Mark 10:38

 

Jesus teaches and speaks beautiful words. Words of welcome and love, words of care and openness. But sometimes, Jesus’ words are hard to hear. We don’t understand or we don’t want to understand. We are challenged, made uncomfortable. It doesn’t fit into our worldview. Will we follow anyway?

Bread of Life
August 1-29, 2021

“Jesus took the loaves…distributed them to those who were seated; …as much as they wanted.” – John 6:11

 

Bread. It is so essential to our lives and our understandings. We use the word in so many different ways and to mean different things. What is this living bread that Jesus promises to be? How will it change us?

Dwelling Place
July 4-18, 2021

“built together spiritually into a dwelling place for God.” – Ephesians 2:22

 

As people, we like stability, to know what’s next, to have a place to go. But is that what God wants? Where does God dwell and how do we get there?

 

These questions are a deep part of the story of learning how to follow God as a community, how to worship and praise always looking to God’s dreams and not to our own assumptions about what praising God should look like.

Growing Pains
May 30 - June 27, 2021

“Do not fear, only believe.” – Mark 5:36

 

The Spirit descended upon us and sent us out. We are in a new world, embarking on a new journey. Nothing is exactly like it was before. This is both exhilarating and frightening. We will have moments of joy and pain, confusion and assurance, excitement and loss. These are the growing pains of our faithful lives.

Abiding in Motion
May 2-23

“you will abide in my love” – John 15:9

 

Abide. God abides with us. It is deeply comforting, but can also feel stationary. We are here, we can snuggle in. This is our place. But what if our place isn’t a place at all? What if God with us isn’t a location but a lived reality? God abides with us and calls us out, sending us into the world to share all we have seen and heard.

Terror and Amazement
April 4 - 18, 2021

“you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has been raised; he is not here.” – Mark 16:6

 

Easter is a time of light and hope, joy and amazement. It is all these things only because it comes in a moment of profound loss and grief, pain and suffering. As disciples, we, like the first followers, encounter a world that is not as God would have it be. We inhabit communities that may struggle to imagine hope. Into our pain, the resurrected Christ comes, showing us a new way, a light in the darkness.
