Welcome

in-person worship on Sunday mornings

The Lord's Supper/Communion

We celebrate the Lord’s Supper at least once per month.

We share the *bread and the juice, speaking words from Jesus’s last Passover meal with his disciples. This helps us remember Jesus’s death and resurrection.

It is okay (more than okay) to be present even if you are not interested in receiving the Lord’s Supper or not ready to follow Jesus. Our worship gatherings are open and reflect a wide range of faith commitments, from none (zero) to lifelong Jesus-following.

Wondering about the meaning or purpose of the Lord’s Supper?

If you have any questions about this part of our life together, please contact us.

*Gluten-free bread is provided for anyone who needs/prefers it.

Children from infancy to 2 years old

Thank you for bringing your child to church!

Our nursery is an optional service for  children aged 2 years or younger. Even if you intend for your child to go to nursery, please begin by bringing your child into the worship space with you so that they can see and experience our all-ages gathering and a sung prayer before many of the children will exit for age-appropriate care/programming.

Masks are required for all adults and all volunteers in our nursery.

Parents/caregivers can access a nursery to soothe or care for their child if desired. On all Sundays, except when we hold our intergenerational  Worship Feasts, volunteer nursery attendants are available to receive and care for children during worship if desired.

All nursery volunteers are required to follow our Safe Church guidelines, which include mandatory background screening.

GROW: Summer program for children aged 4 and up

God Reigns Over (his) World

GROW is an opportunity for children ages 4 and up to have fun together over the summer as we learn about people God chose to be part of his story in the Old Testament.

As we explore the stories of Rahab, Samson, Ruth, and Gideon, we hope to grow in our understanding of the ways God Reigns Over his World with love.

We meet during worship each Sunday in June and July. All children, 4 and up, are welcome, including visitors.

Food allergies?
A snack is offered during the children’s programme. If you are visiting or attending for the first time, follow your child upstairs and inform our volunteer leaders about any food allergies that impact your child.

What is a "Worship Feast"?

With the Lord’s Supper in mind, we share an all-ages meal, shaped by a liturgy, to help nurture our communion and lead us to reflect on Jesus and his ministry. Children of all ages are welcome.

During worship feasts, there is no supervised playtime/nursery.

“When Jesus was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him…” Luke 24: 30-31

We begin worship in the sanctuary, and then we move from the sanctuary to the large hall and gather around tables, all ages together, as our worship continues. A variety of brunch-like foods will be shared.

The upcoming Worship Feast, on May 19, will include a celebration of Communion (the Lord’s Supper). Learn more about Lord’s Supper in a separate item, below.

This special worship gathering was spearheaded by one of our small groups, inspired by a book that they studied together:

We will Feast: Rethinking Dinner, Worship, and the Community of God , by Kendall Vanderslice.
