Communion is central to our understanding of church and worship, and is shared weekly. Regardless of membership or background, newcomer or long-timer, ALL who gather are welcome to share in this sacred remembrance of Christ.
We serve one another by passing communion trays as we are seated. (Gluten-free communion options are available.)
*Under COVID-19 protocols, pre-packaged communion kits are used. Gluten-free wafers are available.
At present, for health protocols, infants through 5th grade students begin their morning at the Children’s Welcome Center, with a temperature check and sign-in, and then go to their Worship Center (9:30am) or Sunday School class (11:00am). All Children’s Ministry staff and volunteers receive a temp check as well.
9:30am: Children 3 years old through 5th grade Children’s Ministry gather in The Orchard for Children Worship and Wonder, an age-appropriate opportunity for worship, prayer, bible stories, and their own expressive responses. We think it is important for children to have the chance to learn and grow through worship geared to their own age and learning style.
11:00am: Sunday School classes give our children a closer look at the scriptures, characters, stories, and ideas that provide our faith’s foundation. Gathered by age and grade, using carefully chosen curriculum, led by trained Children’s Ministry volunteers.
>> Infant and toddler Nursery Care is available at both 9:30am and 11:00am.
>> Supervised play time (and Nursery Care) is provided at 10:30am while adults gather in the Commons for Fellowship between worship/study hours.
A highlight of our worship space are the colorful faceted glass windows in our Sanctuary (Wells Memorial Windows) and Music Suite (Gilpin Memorial Windows). They tell the story of our life together: scripture, history, music, nativity, baptism, communion, resurrection, mission – and have something to say about who we are as a church, as people, as God’s beloved.
There’s more to learn on our side of the glass, and they call us to remember that there is still a world to explore on the other. Read more about each window’s meaning, and those is whose memories they’re given here: Through the Looking Glass – our memorial windows.
