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 Worship Services at Lewinsville
Services are held each Sunday at 11:00 a.m. Monthly Contemplative Worship (Taizé worship) is held in the chapel, the first Sunday of the month at 7:00 p.m (except in the summer months). READ MORE about Taizé worship.
Our 11:00 a.m. service is a 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.

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.
