At present, our order of worship is abbreviated (45 minutes), with minimal congregational singing. We are limiting shared surface contact, by using prepackaged communion and offering drop-boxes.
Following the May 2021 CDC announcement that vaccinated adults can be maskless in gatherings, we have said that masks are certainly welcomed, but are not required.
– sermons with both scriptural foundation and real-life application
– excellent music in a variety of styles and traditions
– shared leadership among men and women, of all ages, ordained ministers and volunteer laypersons; and
– a setting that blends traditional worship practices with modern amenities.
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.
At THE RISING, we come forward to receive the Lord’s Supper, and at TRADITIONAL WORSHIP, we serve one another by passing communion trays as we are seated. (Gluten-free communion options are available at both services.)
Our sanctuary also features a HALO hearing assistance system, which can be tuned in via most modern hearing aids. If you prefer, we also have hearing assistance headsets available at our sound booth.
** At present, for health protocols, infants through 5th grade students begin their morning at the Children’s Worship Center, with a temperature check and sign-in, and go directly to their Worship Center. We will re-evaluate this schedule for the fall. **
Most Sundays, our entire congregation gathers together in the sanctuary, and then our children (through 5th grade) are invited to join our Children’s Ministry leaders 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 a full worship experience: participating in the community’s practices in the sanctuary, AND learning and growing through worship geared to their own age and learning style. We really find it’s the best of both!
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.
What do they say to others 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: Through the Looking Glass – our memorial windows
