10am Worship Service
An in-person/online worship service is offered every Sunday at 10 am. This service will offer a combination of both traditional and contemporary praise music.
Communion On First Sundays
On the first Sunday of every month we celebrate the sacrament of communion (also known as the Eucharist or the Lord’s Supper) together. As part of our commitment to inclusion, we offer gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free bread with a designated cup each time we serve communion. We practice what is called an “open table” and invite all people to participate in communion with us. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you're from- we hope you will celebrate with us!
Our Hymn of Grateful Praise
We’re going out on a limb here. The Worship Team at Discipleship Ministries remains committed to providing resources for lectionary worship on a regular basis. We will continue to do so as we move toward Advent of Year B in a few weeks. But as we were planning for the end of Year A, we believe that we were led by the Spirit to do something a little different for these last three weeks. So, we are temporarily stepping away from the lectionary to provide a short worship series on “Gratitude.”Learn More
Advent: How Does A Weary World Rejoice
Christ was born into a weary world. King Herod ruled the land with a legacy of ruthlessness. The Romans treated the people of Israel with contempt, imposing harsh taxes and land seizures that forced many into subsistence farming. Poverty and destitution were pervasive. And yet, Christ was born, bringing good news of great joy for all people. As Advent comes again to a weary world, we ask, “How does a weary world rejoice?” From the opening chapters of Luke’s Gospel, we have found a few answers: we acknowledge our weariness, we find joy in connection, we allow ourselves to be amazed, we sing stories of hope, we make room, we root ourselves in ritual, and most importantly, we trust our belovedness. In the parallel birth stories of Jesus and John, joy arrives—despite trepidation, fear, or grief. In these stories, we find rhythms for rejoicing. As we move through our series, we hope to create space for acknowledging the weariness of our world while celebrating God’s closeness with great joy.And so, this Advent, we will hold space for our weariness and our joy. We will seek a “thrill of hope” in our hurting world. We will welcome joy—even if, like the prophet Isaiah, we cry out for comfort (Isaiah 40:1). In this weary world, may we find many ways to rejoice.More on Advent
