The River – A New Sunday Evening Service
All are invited to The River worship service beginning Sunday evenings in October at 6 p.m. The River uses a liturgy based on ancient patterns and rituals, a rich fare for mind, body and soul. It is ecumenical yet with a distinctive Lutheran flavor, infused with inclusive language and expansive images for God. The service is multi-sensory, the liturgy is contemplative, and sermons are relevant to contemporary issues and struggles. A variety of styles of music are used throughout this service, ranging from traditional hymns done in a re-imagined way to sacred songs written recently. Holy Communion is celebrated by intinction (dipping). This is Zion’s newest worship service and it is our hope that The River will be life-giving like the waters of baptism and the rivers that intersect in our community.
