Let Us Worship!
We praise God through song, a relaxed liturgy and
Led by Pastor Diane Ludington and musician Bill Casady.
Liturgy is a church-word, but it is an important part of how we gather. Liturgy means literally, the work of the people. In practice, it means how we form our worshipful response to God.
First, we prepare our hearts in gathering prayers and music.
Second, we hear the Word with ears and hearts.
Third, we respond with gifts of service and resources.
Fourth, we carry the word into the world by the way we live.
If you have never experienced a liturgical service, or if it has been a while, I invite you to come, worship in this guided flow that offers a mix of quiet contemplation and communal rejoicing.
Join us in the sanctuary at 5:30 Saturday evenings or worship with us online in partnership with Warsaw United Presbyterian Church 10:30 Sunday morning on Zoom.

RED LETTER BIBLE STUDY
The Gospels offer us more than the chance to eavesdrop on ancient conversations. Jesus’ words are words for us today. The way each gospel writer organizes and presents their experience of the incarnate Christ matters. Consider each writer’s purpose and the words chosen to introduce the reader to Jesus.
