This service (during our programming year – September through May) offers an informal environment where participants gather around round tables and enjoy freshly brewed coffee and continental breakfast while Terry Farmer leads us in music, Bob or Darcy offers a message, and worshipers engage in meaningful prayer and reflection.
9:30 – 9:45 a.m. Chapel Communion, Douglas Chapel
This brief service offers the weekly sacrament of Communion along with a hymn, a scripture passage, a brief meditation, and a prayer. We often have remarkable guest preachers for this service, although sometimes the service is led by either our senior or associate minister. You are welcome to continue on to the 10 a.m. worship service or depart after the service ends.
10 – 11 a.m. Traditional Worship Service, Sanctuary
This service is typically held in our beautiful sanctuary and features our Wilhelm organ, unison prayers, hymns, a sermon, and music from our chancel choir or talented soloists. Children are invited forward for a special children’s message towards the beginning of the service and invited to church school afterwards. This worship lasts approximately 1 hour. 3 Sundays throughout the summer, we move our Summer Worship Service to Pilgrim Hall where we enjoy a Summer Contemporary Worship Service.
11 a.m. – Friendship Time, Pilgrim Hall
All are invited to join us in the upper floor fellowship area called Pilgrim Hall for coffee and assorted cookies. This time allows for visitors to meet others and for members new and old to connect with one another. All our cookies are nut-free in accordance with our peanut/tree nut free church policy.
11:15 a.m. – Healing Space, Douglas Chapel (Third Sunday of each month)
This informal but special service meets on the third Sunday of each month in the Mayflower Room. Each session will include music, both silent and guided meditations, a teaching moment of spiritual practice, and a time for group prayer. Healing Space is a place where music, meditation, and prayer meet. All are welcome.
