Join us in worship
Worship strengthens our relationship with God – it renews us, guides us, and sustains us on our life’s journey. No matter where you find yourself on your journey of faith, we invite you to come and share your story with us. Come and be refreshed.
Jesus likened intimacy with God to a source of "living water" that never runs dry. Worship can be the first step in a growing and sustaining relationship with God.
Come and share our traditions. Our worship combines both ancient and modern elements. We combine elements of Scripture, tradition and reason as we worship. We worship God in a variety of ways. We have an outstanding musical ministry. Soon you will find a pattern of worship that is meaningful for you.
People will welcome you. Our liturgy is printed in a visitor-friendly format. Children are an integral part of our worshiping community, and we value highly the many gifts they bring to us. There are nursery care and Sunday School programs during our later service.
Worship involves you. Worship nourishes the best part of us. The combination of Bible readings, prayer, music, and preaching is designed to help build our relationship with God. The beauty of the church itself and the sacred objects it contains also reach deep within us. Time spent in the quiet beauty of our church helps us listen to our hearts and listen to God’s voice.
Worship is a gift to family life. Regular attendance of worship services is an important family practice. Love of God is reflected in love of family. Worship gives a family tools with which to build its life together on a higher plane, where love and forgiveness are cultivated and everyone is valued..
Experience the love of community.
There are crucial times in our lives. Some bring us joy; some bring us sadness. Our church family provides community that helps us share life’s changing circumstances We have access to pastoral care, study groups, and kind friends to help us find our way.
We invite you to join us in Holy communion. Wherever you are on your journey of faith, we invite you to join us at the altar for the bread and wine made holy, and welcome you into fellowship with all who seek the real presence of Jesus Christ in their lives.
You are encouraged to receive both the Bread and Cup, but if you desire, you may receive just the Bread. You may also receive the wine by intinction, in which case the chalice bearer will dip the bread in the wine and place it on your tongue.
The sacrament is given with these or similar words: “The Body of Christ, the bread of heaven;” “The Blood of Christ, the cup of salvation,” to which you may respond, “Amen.”
All who desire a closer relationship with Christ are welcome to communion.
Worship can change the world. As you continue in your journey, you will find the living water of God feeds your soul, brings you peace, blesses your family and friends, and is a source of strength in both joy and sorrow. We invite you to join us in sharing God’s love with a thirsty world.
Floral Tributes This is a very special way to express your love, or give thanks for blessings. Flowers on the Main Altar are generally given in memory of a loved one, while flowers in the Baptistry are given in thanksgiving. The average cost of flowers each week is $100; however, contributions of any amount are most welcome. The name(s) of the person to be honored is placed in the bulletin on the appropriate Sunday. If you are interested in expressing love or gratitude in this manner, please contact a member of the Altar Guild, or call the church office at 626-282-5147.
