Third Thursday Taize Service
Thursday, February 21
and every third Thursday of the month
6:30 PM in the chapel
Step back from everyday life to be refreshed and encounter God in the silence. Without preaching or teaching, this is a gracefully simple service of contemplation in a prayerful setting, with scripture, prayer, song, silence, and light.
New Evening Service!
Next Service: Sunday, March 3
5:30 PM, Fellowship Hall
Attend the new, relaxed, non-traditional worship service that are held monthly on Sunday evenings at 5:30 PM. They will be celebrated on March 3, April 7, and May 5 in Fellowship Hall.
Worship will be inter-generational and include communion, highly participatory creative elements, global/contemporary/piano- and guitar-based music, and integrated screens throughout, including the sermon.
For more details and to see how you can help shape this new Sunday evening service,
Worship is at the heart of our life.
We invite you to join us on Sundays at 9 or 11 a.m. for a worship service.
During the summer months (Memorial Day – Labor Day), we have a “come as you are” service at 10 a.m. in the Sanctuary and a concurrent service in the Playground for children, families and the young at heart.What to Expect
Our Prayer for This Time"God of abundant grace, in this season of transitions, hear the murmurings of our hearts, seeking hope for healing. God, you are always present, yet we often don’t see your light. Open our eyes to the treasure we have in each other, and help us to cross the threshold towards growth in Jesus Christ, guiding us on a path to reconciliation. Prepare us, as we travel together, to accept the challenge of change in the mystery of your grace. Filled with your Spirit, we ask that you step with us into this clearing with the transformative power of your love. With gratitude we pray. Amen."
