Worship is central to any community of faith, and how we worship will strongly influence how we see our world and how we live in it.
In our worship at Christ Church we welcome all. We seek to create a safe place for all those who are exploring their inner life and seeking companionship for the spiritual journey.
Our sanctuary faces the mountains, and as we listen and learn, we can enjoy the beauty of creation unfolding before us. Sunshine, clouds, snow, rainbows, changing leaves … close and personal in the window behind the altar.
Our worship is contemplative. We have readings from all faith traditions and inspired music by our pianist Bob Israel followed by periods of silence in which we can absorb their messages.
We have an informal, personal format of worship here. Come in your ski clothes. Bring your dog. Enjoy the children ringing the gathering bell. Absorb Pat’s weekly message as he settles onto a stool before the altar to share his gift of sermon story telling. And join hands with us in the closing circle before we leave to carry the message into the world.
Our children are also an important part of and gift to our worship. We include them in the opening portion of our worship, and we gather them to the front for an interactive Word with the Children. The children then go downstairs for Children’s Church and later return to the sanctuary for our closing circle.
