Unprogrammed Worship – 9:30-10:30am
(meets in the sanctuary)
Unprogrammed worship, often called Worship in the manner of Friends, is a time of gathering with the intention
to pay attention to Christ among us. It generally begins with a centering word or thought, leading into extended silence where the community listens attentively for what Christ is teaching. If there is a sense that Christ has given someone a word, they will speak that word to the group. Often full and rich, centered unprogrammed worship leads the community into the sacrament of the present Christ.
