Koinonia Group Worship Liturgies: From Sept. 2020 through Oct. 2021, we shifted our worship approach to include twice-monthly small group worship. On the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month, we met in “Koinonia Groups” for worship, fellowship, nurture, and Bible Study. In Nov. 2021, Koinonia Groups shifted to other times during the week but continue to follow a similar format. For more information on these groups or how to participate, please contact us.

What To Expect

On an average Sunday, about 100 of us gather for worship. Our services tend to be multi-voiced, leaning into the diverse gifts of our worship leaders, congregants, and pastor. We follow both the Revised Common Lectionary and the Spirit’s guiding into themes beyond the lectionary. Worship consists of music (often hymns sung a capella or with accompaniment), Bible readings, stories, a children’s time, a sermon/reflection, sharing of joys and concerns, and prayer. Shared leadership is a key element of our worship services and of all aspects of our community life. As such, members of the congregation share leadership with the pastor to plan, lead, and produce the worship service. Dress is casual and kids are welcome to participate in the service.

Directions

Worship services are held Sunday evenings beginning at 5:00pm. We meet in the Orchard Ridge United Church of Christ building located at the corner of Gilbert Road and Tolman Terrace a few blocks south of the intersection of Whitney Way and Gilbert Road.  See the map for detailed directions.
