Worship Services

100_0025

During the school year (Sept.-May), we gather for worship at 10:00 a.m. (in the sanctuary) at 310 Bluff Avenue.  Worship is usually led by our pastors, Jim and Julia Hollister, often with the involvement of lay members who read scripture, opening prayers, etc. Free nursery care is provided in Room 7 during the service (using paid/trained teenagers as well as rotating parent volunteers).  Children attend the first portion of the service with their families and then leave for their classes, usually after a “Time for Children.” Classes conclude at 11:15 a.m. 

We sharing in the Lord’s Supper (sacrament of communion) on the 1st Sunday of the month. All are welcome to participate in this ritual meal!

Summer Worship is at 9:30 a.m. (June thru Labor Day weekend)

Taizé-style worship is held on the 4th Sunday of the month (September thru May). Services are at 7pm in the sanctuary (or sometimes in the Chapel). These have been a blessing to the community and we would love to partner with other congregations who would help with planning and music. Speak to Pastor Jim or Carra-Lyn Conger (Music Dir.) if you would like to get involved or learn more (or see the website of the Taizé community in France for more info – www.taize.fr)!

Our “Coffee Hour” fellow time is held following the morning worship service, either in our lounge or Lucas Hall. We welcome members and friends to sign up to be “hosts” for this.

We share the Sacrament of Communion during worship on the first Sunday of each month. This meal is open to all Christians — men and women, youth and children — who wish to know the presence of Christ and to share in the community of God’s people

We receive a monthly birthday offering on the last Sunday of each month – that benefits our local Benevolence Fund.
