How do you worship?

We gather each Sunday to worship God by hearing and responding to the story of God’s action in the world, by offering a prayer of thanksgiving to God, and by sharing a sacred meal of bread and wine. Our weekly Sunday service is sometimes referred to as the Holy Eucharist. The first half of the service focuses on readings from the Bible and includes a sermon.

The second half, often called Holy Communion or the Lord’s Supper, is a celebration of Christ’s continuing presence with us through an offering of bread and wine, as well as the offering of ourselves united in Christ’s self-giving love for the world.  We give thanks to God, remember Christ’s death and resurrection, and receive power to live in his Spirit.  For more information, see the Worship section of the site.
