5:30 pm Worship
Our Saturday evening worship is considered ‘Come as you are’. We invite you to join us after your day’s activities, whatever they may be – gardening, sport events, errands, family time. Our worship service features acoustic music, prayer, Holy Communion and sermon message. Many who attend the service find it a time to both reflect and to rejoice with others.
Our Sunday worship service includes music (choral music, handbells, instruments and/or ensembles), rotating liturgies, communion, children’s time, lessons and a sermon reflecting the lessons from scripture. We follow a fairly consistent liturgical pattern of Gathering, Meal, Word and Sending. Worshipers will find liturgical songs and hymns of a wide variety of styles. Scripture readings include a lesson from the Old or New Testaments and a reading from one of the four Gospels. Printed bulletins are used alongside a large screen to help guide worshipers through the service, inviting everyone from the most regular attender to the first-time visitor to participate in prayer and song throughout. Worship is accompanied most often by organ and piano but may also include instrumental ensembles. Communion is served as part of every service, and everyone is invited to come to the table to receive the Lord’s Supper. Following the service, we gather in the church narthex for coffee, treats and fellowship.
