Wednesday evening worship

Santuary set up for Wednesday Contemplative Service

Contemplative service on Wednesday evenings to resume in September

On Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 7 p.m., we gather for a casual, contemporary worship service in song, poetry, scripture, and silent and spoken prayer. It’s at time to slow down and re-center ourselves in the midst of the week — to remember that we are the people of God, called to be a loving, healing, and justice-seeking presence in the world. We find calm in meditative music, we center ourselves in prayer and silent meditation, and we experience scripture in a new way when we read it side by side with contemporary or ancient poetry. We light candles to remember those who have gone before us, to send healing prayers for those who need healing, encouragement, or justice and to express our commitment to continue listening to God’s will in our lives.

You are welcome to participate at whatever level you want to participate! You may want to slip in quietly and simply let the liturgy and song wash over you without uttering a word. You may want to join in the singing and the communal prayers. You may want to participate in leading the service by lighting candles, reading, leading prayers or songs, and choosing readings or setting up the altar.

Before the Wednesday service, there's a meal open to all. More about Wednesday activities.

These contemplative services take a break during the summer (between Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends).
