Special Saturday Service Feb 3

Special Saturday Service Sat, Feb 3 | 5:00pm | Historic Sanctuary

The theme of our Special Saturday Service is Healing and focuses on the scripture of Mark 1:29-39. The Voices of Grace will sing. We are pleased to announce that Colleen Haviland will be our musician for the service playing musical selections on the harp and piano. The service follows with continued discussion of the scripture content and meaning to us, while sharing a meal together of soup and salad—provided for you by Membership Care. The focus, scripture content of this special service will be different than the February 4 Sunday service in the new sanctuary.

 

Every quarter the Worship Commission has organized a special service to gauge the congregation’s interest in another time and type of worship. A sunset service is planned for Sunday, May 6, so we can view and enjoy the magnificent stained glass windows in our sanctuary while the sun sets. A meal is being planned prior to this service. More details will be forthcoming. 

 

In addition, we are in the early planning stages of a Taize service in the Historic Sanctuary. This form of worship was started in Taize, France following World War II to help promote healing following the war. A Taizé worship service involves sung and chanted prayers, meditation, a period of silence, liturgical readings, and icons. There is no preaching. Typically the altar is filled with lighted candles. More details to be provided soon.
