Anointing with holy oil, laying on of hands, and healing prayer at both Sunday services
LAST SUNDAY of each month:
5:00 p.m. Taizé with Centering Prayer - Join us for an ecumenical service featuring meditative prayer and song. SPECIAL NOTE: Taizé is on break until September.
Also on Wednesdays:
Our celebrations of Holy Eucharist are Rite II. On Sundays, our 9:30 a.m. service is sung on the 1st and 3rd Sundays and said on the 2nd and 4th Sundays - for the most part. We like to stay flexible and receive gifts that may show up among us.
The Wednesday Eucharist is said, short and very informal. Our services are from the Book of Common Prayer; Scripture readings are from the Revised Common Lectionary, and we use the New Revised Standard Version.
Our invitation to Holy Communion is found in the words of Jesus from the gospel of Matthew: "Come to me all you who are weary and are carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest." (11:28).
Our welcome to families is (as stated in our bulletin): "We love the sound of your children in our church home. If you feel the need to take them out of the worship service, we hope it’s for their comfort (if they are crying or need calming words), or your comfort (time to re-group). We’re fine. Really."
To guests and visitors unfamiliar with our form of worship: you don't have to know what to do. We've got your back. Come and settle in to the peace and Presence with friends.
