SO, WHAT'S CHURCH LIKE?
If you've never been to church, or if you haven't been in awhile, attending can be intimidating or even a bit scary. We get that. So we try to make you feel welcome while respecting your personal space and privacy.
Currently, during the Covid19 pandemic, our church will be worshipping on line. Please join us on our YouTube Channel Sundays at 10 and for Coffee Hour at 11 on Zoom and prayers. Please Email our office if you would like to know more or if you need a password to join our Coffee Hour. Eweyucc.firstname.lastname@example.org
The following is about our worship in general. Worship is expression of the awesomeness of God's creative, redeeming, and sustaining love in our lives. Worship is central to our life together, giving us purpose and strengthening us spiritually for our journeys ahead as God's people. We hear words and song that bring us hope and good news found in the teachings and loving ways of Christ.
Our worship services, which lasts about 40 minutes online, include contemporary and traditional hymns and songs, prayers of the people, Bible readings, a sermon, an anthem by our choir and an invitation to generosity in thanksgiving to God for what we have received.
We have a Hutchings-Votey pipe organ and a Chickering grand piano, both of which are used in our services. Our Senior Choir sings nearly every Sunday of the year, including our more casual summer services. Now each choir member's voice is uploaded via technology for our weekly online musical offerings. Our music is chosen to be appropriate to the theme of the day. It can range from 13th century chants to 21st century gospel and jazz.
The Sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. In communion, we celebrate Christ's presence. All are welcome to Christ's communion table.
Our coffee hour --- snack time per the kids --- is where adults and children gather now online via zoom for refreshment, prayer and often lively conversation.
And if you have any question at all about what we do and why we do it, don't hesitate to ask!
