We are liturgical, just like the earliest Christians and their worship – Gathering, Word, Meal and Sending.
We love the music of the church and the movements of worship; we may raise our arms up, we may clap our hands, we may move with the rhythms.
Our worship is informally… formal.
We adapt to our multi-cultural context; music from all times and places, in English and in Spanish.
We love Gospel music, and the old stand-bys of Christian worship; we have a small choir and musical accompaniment – drums, keyboard, and sometimes guitar. When we can find someone to play it and we worship in the “Swedish Cathedral” upstairs, the organ rings out, filling the space with praise and thanksgiving!
We start our worship not promptly… yes, “not promptly” … we have people who come from different areas of the community, people who depend upon the transportation of others and people who, culturally, tend to be a bit late. We begin when it makes sense – never before 10:15 AM on Sundays, and normally no later than 10:30 AM. That’s our mostly English, bi-lingual service. Those who do come earlier use the time for preparation and prayer.
We are passionate about worship. It can be seen and felt.
We are passionate about our faith and our worship.
We have an afternoon service, too; it is Spanish-speaking and it begins at 1:30 PM – again, lots of passion, lots of movement and rhythms!
Our older youth often worship, too, on Friday nights, starting around 6 PM.
Bible Study for all ages and both English and Spanish are available on Wednesday nights at 7:00 PM.
