Services are held each Sunday at 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. with the exception of the summer months when services are combined into one service at 10:00 a.m. Monthly Contemplative Worship (Taizé worship) is held in the chapel, the first Sunday of the month at 7:00 p.m. READ MORE about Taizé worship.

Our 8:30 a.m. service is designed to be a simple, less liturgical and more intimate service of worship. Communion is served every Sunday at this service. All are welcome at the Lord’s table.

Our 11:00 a.m. service is more traditional, with the sacrament of Holy Communion celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. Holy Communion is also celebrated on special days throughout the year. All Christian believers and their baptized children are welcome at the Lord’s table.

The sacrament of Baptism is administered during morning worship (usually on the third Sunday at the 11:00 a.m. service) by arrangement with the pastors and the Session.

At Lewinsville, we have intentionally scheduled the Church School hour and Worship Services at different times to allow children to participate in and experience worship. READ MORE about Children in Worship. Lewinsville also provides nursery care for infants and small children during the worship service and the Christian Education hour. READ MORE about nursery care.

Special worship services of music are planned during Advent and Lent with added musical instrumentation.

About Taizé Contemplative Worship

taizecandles

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.


LETTER FROM PASTOR SCOTT ABOUT REFORMATION SUNDAY

Dear Friends at Lewinsville,

On October 27, we will celebrate Reformation Sunday, when we remember our forebears in the Protestant Reformation –John Calvin, Martin Luther, and others who sensed that God was calling them to make changes to the church, to realign the church with its calling from God.

Reformation Sunday is a time to look back. We look back to (1) give thanks for the ways that God has blessed us and for the ways that we have responded faithfully; (2) acknowledge and confess the times that we have been “out of alignment” with God’s good purposes; and (3) learn the lessons that the past has to teach us. When you look back at your life –either the full sweep of your life or a more recent period – what do you learn about God’s role in your life? Where were you living in congruence with God’s grace? Where were you living at cross-purposes with God?

Reformation Sunday is also a time to look forward. We look forward to (1) listen for where God is calling us to go and what God is calling us to do, and (2) see how God is calling us to change. When you look forward in your life –over the next 6 months, the next year, the next 5 years – what things do you believe God wants you to focus on? What about your life are you being called to change?

Time is “an ever-flowing stream,” carrying us from our past into our future. It is not static, it does not stay the same, and we have new opportunities to do things different this time, while learning from the lessons and the mistakes of our past. If you would like to have conversation about God’s ongoing reformation in your life, I would love to talk with you. These are the most important things.

Many blessings for your journey, Pastor Scott
