Worship lies at the heart of how we bring ourselves into a deeper relationship with God. Worship gives us a deeper understanding of each other. We trust that God is genuinely present with us in baptism, in preaching, in song and praise, and in sharing the bread and wine of Holy Communion.
In worship, we gather in communion with one another because of what God is doing. Worship is our response to God’s action. Worship is an encounter with God, who saves us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Worship is not just an hour spent on Sunday morning, but it is an offering to God of our entire week just past and what is to come.
We believe worship can occur in any time or space, however, we invite you to look at our Sanctuary where most of our formal worship takes place. The cross is the central symbol marking this space. You can see its representation both in the wooden cross behind the altar, but also woven within the tapestry hanging on the chancel wall. Take time to gaze at God’s creation through windows that themselves are marked by this symbol.
The placement of the Baptismal font in the center of the Sanctuary is intentional. We believe our Baptism is central to our faith; the font reminds us of the grace we received at our Baptism. We encourage you to remember your Baptism by dipping your finger in the font and making the sign of the cross on your forehead. You may do this at any time, but may we suggest that entering the Sanctuary for worship or as you come forward to receive Holy Communion are appropriate times.
