We will offer Taize' worship on Wednesdays during the season of Lent as an opportunity to spend a focused time of contemplation on the love of God poured out for us on the cross, and the promise of God made perfect in the resurrection. Taize' will be offered on Wednesdays at 10:30am for those who prefer daytime and at 6:30pm for those who prefer evening worship, beginning on March 13th and ending on April 10th. We will enter in prayerful silence, will hear Scripture and prayerfully sing a few choruses, receive the sacrament of Holy Communion, and leave quietly. The service takes less than 30 minutes, but Taize' is less about quantity and more about quality of time spent with God. Our prayer is that you will receive this time of focused meditation on Christ as balm to your soul and strength to your spirit.
