Beginning in January, Rev. Mark Flynn and Rev. Seth O’Kegley-Gibson will co-lead a seven-week study entitled “Why We Worship As We Do.” Each week, they will facilitate a conversation about one or more of our current worship practices through the lens of scripture, tradition, and reason, and experience.

Virtual classes will take place on Monday nights at 7 pm beginning January 10, and in-person classes will take place on Wednesday mornings at 10 am beginning January 12. Registration for the class and readings for each week are under the “Courses” tab here on our website. 

The following topics will be covered in those seven weeks: 

  • January 10/13: Holy Baptism 
  • January 17/19: Worship Movement (standing, bowing, kneeling)  
  • January 24/26: Liturgical Year
  • January 31/February 2: Art in Worship (music, dance, paraments) 
  • February 7/9: Prayer
  • February 14/16: Holy Communion
  • February 21/23: Worship Architecture (arrangement, stained glass)
