Worship is the defining activity of any Christian community. It is where we most fully and intentionally encounter God. We understand our worship “service” to be first and foremost God’s service to us. In the Word read and proclaimed, God speaks to us a message that is both challenge and promise.
In Holy Communion God draws us into the risen life of Christ, fed with his body in order to become his body in the world for the sake of the world. Through this encounter, God the Holy Spirit creates and strengthens our faith, which we express in prayer, praise, and thanksgiving. This faith becomes active in love toward God and our neighbor as we are sent back into our daily lives.
UPDATE 1/8/22: Live Only Service in January Beginning this Sunday, January 9,in light of the recent spike in COVID infections and the burden these are placing on our healthcare system, that we should temporarily return to live-stream-only worship for the rest of the January. We realize how disappointing this will be to many of you (as it is for us!) but we felt it was our most faithful and prudent course of action at this time. We will return to services of Morning Prayer for the rest of the month.
