Midweek Worship – An Update

In January 2018, we held our first Midweek Worship Service, a service envisioned by a team of worship leaders as a way of offering folks (current parishioners as well as people new to the community) a way to participate in worship at First in addition to our Sunday worship services. This service began long before the advent of livestreaming and other online opportunities for prayer, devotion and worship were a part of our community lives.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, our Midweek Worship Service was a life-line for many folks, providing an opportunity to gather for worship and to check in with members of God’s community. This was the only opportunity, for a long period of time, in which we gathered as God’s community for the celebration of Holy Communion.

Since returning to onsite worship and with the continuation of our livestreaming, attendance at our Midweek Worship Service has dwindled. After much prayer and conversation, we are placing our Midweek Worship Service on-hold while we discern where and how God is calling us to gather for worship in this community going forward. You are invited to join us, via ZOOM, on Wednesday, May 31, 2023 at 7:00 PM for a special worship service in which we will give thanks for the gift that this service has been for God’s community and ask for the Spirit’s guidance on our future discernment conversations.

As decisions are made regarding additional worship opportunities, we’ll be in touch!

To those who have so faithfully been a part of this worship service over these past years, a heart-felt thank you!
