About our Guest Preacher: Rev. Jessica Tate, the founding director of NEXT Church and an International Coaching Federation-trained leadership coach, is now the stated supply pastor at Georgetown Presbyterian Church. NEXT Church is an organization devoted to following God’s call into the future, strengthening the relational fabric of the PCUSA, and cultivating congregations and leaders who work for the common good. As we stand at the edge of Lewinsville’s own future, at this moment of transition and turbulence in our society and world, it will be so helpful to have Rev. Tate lead us in reflecting on what God’s call is to us at this time.

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.
