Worship

To honor state health directives, and to ensure the greatest safety and protection for our community, our current listing of services and gatherings has been updated.

Our two streamed services on Facebook Live each week include “Virtual Holy Communion.” We encourage those worshiping from home to prepare bread and wine, and to participate fully during this interim period of staying at home. There are two Outdoor Communion services held in our Courtyard area each weekend. Physical distancing, taking temperatures, regular sanitizing, and other health precautions are in effect. We all look forward to returning to in-person Communion for everyone as soon as health orders permit. 
 
We hope that these worship services will provide inspiration and hope at this difficult time for us all. We encourage those at higher infection risk to continue participating safely from home, through our streaming options. For more information, please read the resources and links below. All are welcome!

Sunday Worship services will continue to be streamed through Facebook Live, and can be accessed whether you have a Facebook account or not. Below are the files and links that will work during the live stream times. These videos will be posted live, and are also available to view after the live stream is done. You might have a prompt to initiate a Facebook account. However, there is an option below the pop-up to not make an account and see the videos and even the other content on the page -- choose "Not Now."

In the future
 
Every week this community gathers in a variety of settings and styles of worship. Worship, at its most basic, is prayer, praise and thanksgiving of the world’s Creator. Whether at morning or evening prayer, or gathered around Word and Sacrament, this community opens its arms to all who desire to “come into God’s presence with thanksgiving, and into God’s courts with praise (Psalm 100:4).”
 
Particularly in the Holy Communion services, we participate in the most ancient shape of Christian worship and life: “And the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to community, to the breaking of the Bread, and to prayer (Acts 2:42).”
