Sunday Morning, 10:30 a.m.
The word “worship” means “to ascribe worth.” Our Sunday morning worship service is the one time in the week when we gather as a single community. Though we come together holding a variety of differing beliefs, the service nurtures our lives and our worth, helping each of us to find calm in our busy lives, to bring together thought and feeling, and to find some center of perspective and peace.
Our worship services have less liturgy and ritual than those in many traditional churches, but we do have common elements that move the gathered community through about an hour and a quarter-long experience of centering, reflecting and returning. Our minister or visiting speaker usually gives a sermon intended to stimulate our thinking and feeling about our own values and beliefs, social issues and/or religious topics. The source may be anything that inspires contemplation. The sermon is the intellectual centerpiece of the service and often the emotional one as well.
Coffee after the service is a time of further reflection and connection among members and visitors.
