8:30 a.m. Quiet Reflective Service

January 27, 2019
08:30 AM / 09:30 AM

The early morning service (a more contemplative tone) continues!! But we have changed the time from 8 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.  The liturgy for the 8:30 a.m. service will be similar to the 10:30 a.m. celebration with the same sermon and texts, and Communion on the first Sunday of the month. The 8:30 a.m. service will not have musicians, except on rare occasion, with longer spaces for silence and reflection built into the flow of the service. There will not be Fellowship Time afterwards unless that evolves on its own.
