COVID-19 PROTOCOLS: In consultation with the Lewinsville Medical Task Force, the Session voted unanimously to make masks optional in worship, removing the current mask requirement in the sanctuary, effective Sunday, September 25, 2022. The Medical Team will continue to monitor Covid-19 cases in the local area and Session will inform the congregation should we need to make changes. The congregation is encouraged to be up-to-date on vaccinations, and if they are not feeling well, to consider staying home to watch the worship service via livestream.

About Taizé Contemplative Worship
Taizé is a place hidden away in the hills of Burgundy, France. It is an ecumenical community of brothers whose worship is at the heart of their life. Worship at the Taizé community happens thrice daily and is called Taizé prayer. Taizé prayer has two essential elements: song and silence.
The Taizé songs are a form of sung prayer. The songs are short chants (usually words from scripture) that are repeated over and over giving them a meditative quality. The silence during Taizé prayer a time of listening, a time to have one’s soul open for God.
We will experience Taizé worship the first Sunday of each month (October through June) at 7:00 p.m. Join us.
