Wednesday Night Vespers Series Commences September 6th, 6:30-7:00 p.m.

Please join us as we launch our new evening Vespers series on Wednesday evening, September 6th, from 6:30-7:00 pm in the church sanctuary. (Childcare will be available from 6:00-7:15 pm.)

The services will be based on the Taizé style of worship, featuring candlelight, inspirational music, readings and meditation. Come to find peace, silence and fellowship.

Amid all the noise in our lives,
we take this moment to sit in silence —
to give thanks for another day;
to give thanks for all those in our lives
who have brought us warmth and love;
to give thanks for the gift of life.
– Tim Haley

We will join together in silent meditation, a candle-lighting ritual, and the singing of short chants and rounds. This unique respite from the hectic pace of everyday life offers restoration, and an opportunity to calm our minds and hearts and nourish our spirits.

The Vespers series will continue each month on the first Wednesday evening of the month, from 6:30-7:00 pm.

Come be a part of the music!
If you’d like to learn the music beforehand, or have an instrument you’d like to play along with us, come 30 minutes beforehand and practice with us! We welcome your musical talent. The songs are easy and repetitive.
