CALLED TO BE THE HEART OF GOD IN THE COMMUNITY

Worship

Sunday Worship
10:45am

Our worship is grounded in the tradition of the Church and enlivened by the Holy Spirit!
“Traditional but not stuffy”
is our worship style!

Our Sunday worship is lead by a team of clergy, lay leaders, and our church choir. After worship, please join us for Fellowship Time with light refreshments in the Parlor. We hope to see you there!

Children are always welcome in worship, but if you prefer:

The sacrament of Holy Communion is open to all and is typically shared the first Sunday of the month. All are welcome to receive this sacred gift.

The sacrament of Holy Baptism is celebrated several times a year as we welcome new disciples into the Body of Christ. Both infants and adults are presented to receive the gracious waters of Baptism.

Special Sundays, such as Christmas and Easter, take place throughout the year. Learn more about how we observe these special Holy Days.

The Third Sunday of each month, we make time to recognize and pray for anyone who is:

  • Having a birthday that month;
  • Celebrating their baptismal anniversary;
  • Celebrating a wedding anniversary;
  • Starting a new job or call;
  • Anything else momentous (joyful or challenging) in your life you would like to pray for with your church family.

YOU are invited to join us in worship! Come and be met by a God who knows you by name and wants to have a personal relationship with you!

Spirituality & the 12 Steps Sermon Series Begins Sun, Jan 7, 2018 - 10:45am

We are all in RECOVERY from something - or we need to be. For some that might be a substance addiction, for others it’s attention, perfection, social media, food - you name it.

So plan to join us for this new sermon series on Spirituality and the 12 Steps starting January 7 at 10:45am. Come and learn practical ways we can all be set free from the things that bind our soul and limit new life in Christ.  Listen to the sermons here as they become available:

  1. "An Unmanageable Life?"
  2. "The Difference"
  3. "Confession as an Act of Faith"

In addition, you may want to join in the coinciding study of Richard Rohr's Breathing Under Water: Spirituality and the Twelve Steps for more insights and practices that can help us grow into the people God created us to be. This study will be Wednesday evenings from 9:00-10:00pm via Zoom Video Conferencing so you can join from the comfort, privacy, and warmth of your own home.

For more information on the sermon series or study, contact Pastor Alisa (alisa@chumc.net or 202-546-1000, x222).
