“The awareness of a spiritual tradition that reaches through the centuries
gives one a certain feeling of security in the face of all transitory difficulties.”
Ultimately, what we need is an encounter with the living God.
Knowledge and information are important for our discipleship, but only an encounter with the living Christ brings the kind of soul-transformation we long for. Are you hungering for that kind of space? That's what our liturgy is about - cultivating the kind of space where our attention can be drawn to the Christ who is always present with us.
What we do each Sunday when we gather forms us as disciples. In worship, our imaginations are transformed to see Christ’s presence in our daily lives and in all the world.
Our prayers and songs for worship are drawn from the Church's rich 2,000+ year old history, but are re-expressed for today. We have found much joy in praying the ancient prayers and creeds that have been spoken for ages to a living God. These creeds and prayers connect us to something much bigger than ourselves. But we also have artists among us who are always composing new songs and prayers for today as they listen to the Spirit.
We worship in the same basic pattern that most Christians have for centuries: singing praises, hearing God's Word, responding in prayer and confession, celebrating the Eucharist, then being sent out with a blessing to join what God is doing in the world. All these practices help us tell the story of who God is and what God is up to in this world, then invite us to join the story ourselves.
