Mission projects have included cleaning neighborhood parks, assisting at the domestic violence shelter and doing yard work at Kemmerer Village, a Presbyterian children's home.
The 10:30 service is held in the sanctuary. This is a blended service. It uses some elements of contemporary services with the more traditional responsive readings and hymns.
The Community of Taizé is an ecumenical, monastic community founded in France in 1940 by a Swiss Reformed seminary student named Roger Schutz. The community seeks reconciliation in the Christian church and wherever God's wholeness and peace are needed. Most of the 100 Brothers live together in a small village (Taizé) in the Burgundy area of France.
The Taizé service is held on the first Wednesday of the month at 6:15 from September through May. This prayer service offers a taste of the character of the contemplative prayer services at the Community of Taizé. As at Taizé, the music has been chosen to help us enter into a time of silence and in song. The meditative songs offer short, repeated expressions of prayer, which may become our own prayers as we hear them, gradually come to learn them, and begin to join in singing them. You are invited to listen to the musicians repeating the songs while you settle into a sense of comfort in singing them yourself. Let the words and music slowly and gently fill you, drawing you to turn your attention to God in song and silent prayers.
