Worship Service

Gathering together in study, song and support

shari 2.jpgThe Worship Team runs our weekly services, from lighting our chalice to reading the "Time for All Ages" and they are available for any questions you may have.

We have worship services every Sunday.  You can see our worship schedule here. (Sunday Schedule)

The worship service is led by Reverend Shari and a Worship Associate, and begins with a musical prelude and a welcome to members and visitors alike. We light the chalice, the symbol of our faith, and sing the first of many songs. After reciting our affirmation we sing our second song and have the Time for all Ages (a story read for children and adults). Once the children leave for their religious education classes, we share the congregation's joys and concerns. A short meditation/prayer follows for the congregation and wider world before the offertory, reading, and Reverend Shari's sermon.

We also sometimes hear from a guest or member when the minister is away.  Occasionally the service follows a different format, centering around ritual or involving all ages throughout the service.

After the sermon, we sing another song, extinguish the chalice, and recite the closing words. After each service we meet in the Fellowship Hall for coffee and conversation.
