Worship

We are Growing in our Love of God through Worship and Prayerbanner

Worship

Our church family gathers each Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. for Worship.  We gather in God’s presence to lift our voices to God in praise, to share our joys and our concerns, to hear God’s Word and how it informs our lives, and to respond with acts of thanksgiving, dedication and communion, before being sent out into the world to love and serve God and neighbor.   We follow the seasons of the church year which celebrate the advent and birth, the life and ministry, the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the ongoing presence of God in the life of the church through the Holy Spirit.

hymnalsOur worship is enhanced by music led most Sundays by Organ and Choir.  On the second Sunday of each month our worship music is led by Open Circle, our church band.  We sing from The United Methodist Hymnal, The Faith We Sing, and Worship and Song.

 

We have special services each year on Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday and Easter Sunrise.

Pray

Centering PrayerBe still 1

Centering prayer is a form of silent meditation intended to open our hearts to the work of God.  We find that praying together helps!  We meet on Tuesdays at noon.  No prior experience is necessary. Please join us.

 

Joys and Concerns

Sharing our Joys and Concerns is an important part of our weekly worship.

Prayer Chain

We maintain an active prayer chain through members and friends. Please call the office if you desire to be added to the email list or have a special prayer request.

Upper Room Devotional Resources

We encourage our members to find ways to engage in regular prayer and devotional reading.  The Upper Room is a ministry of the United Methodist Church that provides many wonderful resources. Check them out here.

Sunshine Room

Our church recently redecorated the Sunshine Room which is located on the south side of the building above the lower entrance.  This room is a lovely space for personal prayer, quiet conversation, or small group study.  It also houses our supply of prayer shawls and grief resources.
