Underground Church Worship Service

 

On Hiatus Until September

Underground Church is a unique and dynamic gathering that combines the intimacy of Jesus' early community with creative and inventive worship experiences.  In the warmth and safety of community we explore the scriptures, live out the questions through discussion,  and share innovative rituals that bring us closer to each other and to our still-speaking God.  Together we create the unity of spirit that helps us find God's presence in the messy and beautiful experience of living today.  All are welcome!

ONGOING EVENTS

Weekly Labyrinth Walks:

Wednesdays 11am-1pm in the Sanctuary

(Closed July-August)

 

Take your soul for a walk on the labyrinth.  We are pleased to offer labyrinth walks each Wednesday as a chance to connect with your soul in our beautiful sanctuary.

 

The labyrinth is an ancient spiritual tool , a mode of “walking prayer” that invites us to go deeper in our walk with God.  Our labyrinth, modeled on one in Chartes Cathedral in France, sits as the center of our Sanctuary, a constant metaphor for our spiritual lives.  Just like the labyrinth, our lives are not linear, but filled with twists and turns.  Sometimes we make great progress, and other times we feel we are going backwards.  But if we trust in the path we will find our selves in the center: the heart of God. All are welcome to take their souls out for a walk... no experience necessary!

 

You can CLICK HERE to find out more about walking the labyrinth. Check out this lovely write up on our labyrinth on Baristanet in the Spring of  2014.
