Worship and Music Opportunities
Worship is a joyful expression of our covenant with God. In worship, we believe God to be present with us as we celebrate our rebirth through the living Christ. There is time for confession and reconciliation to prepare us to hear God’s Word as it is read, preached and sung. As a community, we respond to this Word through acts of offering and communion and are enabled with strength and courage to bring the Good News to a hurting and broken world. Worship services at Church of the Saviour are Christ-centered and Spirit filled!
Chapel Service – 8:30 a.m. Sundays in Myers Chapel
Worship includes congregational hymn-singing and special music provided by soloists, ensembles and the GOOD NEWS choir which sings monthly. Scripture reading and the morning prayer are led by lay people. Prayer concerns are shared audibly.
LifeSong – 9:30 a.m. Sundays in the Great Hall
Worship leader and a Praise Band lead the music; prayer concerns are shared audibly and by the use of prayer cards, and lay persons read the Scripture. Special music that contributes to the theme for the day is offered by children’s, youth and adult choirs on a rotating basis. A children’s sermon is included in this service each week.
Sanctuary Service – 11:00 a.m. Sundays in the Sanctuary
Special music is provided each week by the Chancel Choir during the academic year. Vocal and instrumental soloists, as well as children’s, youth and adult choral ensembles are part of this service weekly. A children’s sermon is included in this service on days when a children’s choir offers special music.
Taizé – 7:00 p.m. first Wednesday of the month in the Sanctuary
Candlelight worship service of prayer, meditation and reflection.
Communion Stewards: The service of Communion is one of the most sacred and significant events in our worship and the “behind the scenes” preparation and setup of the elements are essential to its proper distribution.
Eucharist Ministers: Lay members share the body and blood of Christ with those in our faith community who are physically unable to be with us on Communion Sundays.
Ushers/Greeters: On Sunday mornings, greeters at each door welcome visitors and members to the church. Ushers hand out bulletins, collect the offering, distribute the Communion elements, and serve the needs of those attending services.
