Parts of the Worship Service

The second movement of worship where the Word of God is read, proclaimed, and heard by the people. A Bible is located in your pew if you would like to read along.
This is the third movement where the congregation, having heard the Word of God proclaimed, responds to the message by participating in God’s loving presence in the world.
The fourth movement in our worship where we carry the good news of God’s love out into the world.
