Sunday, June 24, 2018:
Fifth Sunday after Pentecost
This Sunday is the last of the month, and so is our alternative music Sunday at the 10 am service. This month, the music will be led by our Bluegrass Band. The readings this week include a passage from the book of Job, in which God questions Job in a way that makes it clear how much Job does not know about the deepest mysteries of life and of the universe, and a reading from Mark's Gospel in which Jesus encounters the panic of his disciples in the midst of a storm. Both of these stories, in different ways, invite us to examine our own relationship with the deep mystery of life, and whether or not we are willing to trust God with that mystery -- and entrust ourselves to that mystery.
Our Godly Play classes for children are now on break for the summer, and will resume in mid-September. Until then, we will have a children's space at the front of the church through the summer Sundays. This will allow younger children to have some quiet activities while they worship with the community at the 10 am service. Parents may sit in the front row, or join their kids in the KidSpace. The Nursery will be open every Sunday during the summer to accommodate our youngest members.
Youth Group has had their end of year party this past Sunday, and the regular program year has come to a close.
Here are more details about our normal Sunday worship schedule:
Our 8:00 am service is held in the Chapel, except on the first Sunday of the month, when it is held in the Church. It includes Communion, Sermon, and a little music. It follows Rite I from the Book of Common Prayer ("thee, thou, thy" language) and is a quieter, more contemplative service.
Our 10:00 am service is held in the Church, and is the one most people attend. It follows a cycle of liturgies or services over each month. The choir sings on most Sundays.
We have a professionally staffed nursery (located in Angus Hall) for infants through age 3. It is open from 9:00 am until the end of the 10:00 am service.
Sunday mornings are active for children. Children begin the 10 am service each Sunday in church, and then leave in procession after the first reading to gather separately, first to hear the Gospel reading of the day and then to go to their classes. Children's Christian formation includes Godly Play for children age four through fifth grade. Parents can pick up their children from Trinity Hall and bring them into church to receive Communion if they wish, or they may pick up their children after church is over.
