This page contains a partial list of events with descriptions.
Beginning with the Palm Sunday stories, we will read all of the synoptic Gospel (Matthew, Mark and Luke) accounts of Holy Week and post-resurrection encounters, using the text arranged in parallel format by Dr. Henry Sharman. Thoughtful questions will guide the conversation to reveal fresh insights, whether you are reading the text for the first time or the thousandth time! Facilitated by Sarah Elliott.
Each Sunday, we endeavor to make our 10am service in the church relevant to families as we include children and youth in worship leadership. Whether it’s the St. Francis Choir or the Choristers singing, a sermon that speaks to the needs of the family, collecting food to be blessed at the altar to share with the poor, or having a youth read Scripture lessons aloud, the focus is on family.
“I am welcome here in God’s House!” As the opening song of this special service suggests, First Steps to Worship celebrates the hospitality and welcome that God intends for all of his children, regardless of age. Especially designed and planned for all, but especially for households with young children (this means grown-ups, too!), the First Steps experience is vibrant yet instructive, playful yet powerful, flexible yet valuing ritual, and downright joyful! Communion is celebrated each week of the year at First Steps, and families gather afterward for fellowship. The liturgy itself begins at 10:15am, and it is held in Haas Hall, just off Family Alley, behind the worship space.
