What do folks wear?
You get to choose. Wear what makes you feel joy, or comfort, or what's clean, or what you wore the day before. You won't spot any ties or suits, but if you want to wear one, you're welcome to.
What can I expect?
We want to center ourselves around God's abundant and ever welcoming table, so we sit in the round with the bread of life, cup of the new covenant, snacks to share, and other worship elements in the center.
We Intentionally craft spaces of reflection, response, prayer, and proclamation through various forms, expressions, and practices. Our worship gathering is multisensory and creative.
We provide access for everyone to engage in leadership, response, or service. You will be offered opportunities to volunteer to read, share, or respond. You will never be forced to do something you don't want to do.
We are intentional about finding appropriate ways to engage the children in worship and community building. There is childcare provided for 2yrs-11yrs. The children are a part of our service and then leave to play. They are given the opportunity to come and go freely. Babies are a regular part of our service. Nursing moms are welcome.
We are still forming. Sometimes what we do doesn't work out the way we'd hoped. We're ok with that and hope you will be too.
Is there childcare?
All young people are invited to join us for whatever amount of time they would like to. There is a time in the gathering when children are welcomed to go and play in a separate space with a childcare provider.
