Wednesday Worship

September 20 and October 18, 6:20-7:00 pm in Sanctuary

Worship is an adventure, one that distinctively shapes the community of faith. We do not control nor can we even fully imagine the Holy God to whom we sing and pray.  Wednesday Worship is our multi-generational adventure in worship, where many voices, instruments and styles blend in a brief service of praise and prayer, Word and ritual.
