We hope you will join us for worship during the season of Epiphany.
This liturgical season moves us from Epiphany (January 6) until Shrove Tuesday (February 16) which is the day before Lent begins. The readings at the heart of our worship generally focus on Jesus as the incarnation of God’s love for all people. The Greek word at the root of epiphany points to “a sudden, intuitive perception of or insight into the reality or essential meaning of something, usually initiated by some simple, homely, or commonplace occurrence or experience [dictionary.com].”
Joining us for worship on Zoom
Currently we worship on Zoom on Sunday mornings. At 9-9:30 AM an intimate service of meditation in the style of the Taizé community in France is offered. From 10:30-11:30 AM we gather, all ages together, for singing, prayer, scripture and learning. Read about the schedule below. After both worship services we linger for conversation in small groups. This is a good time to get to know people and ask questions.
To receive the Zoom information, contact Pastor Lacey at firstname.lastname@example.org. Provide your name, phone number and email address and we will get back in touch with you.
