What to Expect at Morning Worship
Every Sunday at 10 am in the sanctuary. Before you enter our sanctuary, you will be greeted by an usher or Deacon. If you have any questions about how to find the bathrooms or the nursery, don’t hesistate to ask them! In the Narthex (the foyer outside the sanctuary), there are nametags that you can fill out if you’d like people to get to know your name. As you enter the sanctuary doors, an usher will hand you a bulletin. This is an instruction manual for worship service. You can follow the order of the service, the parts in bold are when the congregation reads or sings, the places where you see an asterix is when you stand. But don’t worry about getting it right the first time, just follow your neighbor and you’ll soon catch on! There are Bibles and hymnals in the pews. Sometimes there are not enough, so feel free to ask someone to share with you.
Wonder Our Sunday morning service inspires wonder: about God, about ourselves, about the meaning and purpose of our lives.
Welcome Friendly faces greet you, and make you feel at home. Look around: see teens and toddlers, parents and grandparents, and single people of all ages. Faith is new to some of us, and a life-long endeavor for others. Some are seeking; some know that they’ve been found. You’ll fit right in.
Look! Watch the sunlight dance through the stained glass. Ponder the beauty of the woodwork, and let the spaciousness of the sanctuary stir you.
Listen! The music of the organ and instruments of great variety will call to you. Vocal choirs of adults and children will inspire. Hand bell choirs for all ages will amaze and delight. But this is not mere performance. Our music carries us beyond ourselves, into sweet realms of harmony and transcendence, where God makes us welcome.
Ponder. Bible stories, taken seriously, but not literally, suggest new ways of living. The preaching is thoughtful and engaging; not the last word on any subject, but a contribution to conversation. And prayer is offered: words to guide you, and silence for your own use.
Intimacy and awe, solitude and companionship, searching and finding. Come and see for yourself.
