TAIZE SERVICE

4th Sunday of each month, 5-6pm in the Chapel.

Taize Worship is a special style of worship developed by the Taize Christian community in France. It includes scripture, songs as prayer with piano accompaniment, prayer, and times of silence. The service is held in candle light. Those who attend the Taize service appreciate the quiet and peaceful nature of the worship and the opportunity for meditation and contemplative prayer. Everyone is welcome. Worship Leader, Helen Higby 790-6996

The Taize worship is not meant to replace Sunday morning worship, but is a wonderful addition to it.
