Wherever you are on your journey, you are welcome here
Hudson, OH (PRWEB) September 15, 2010
Beginning September 19th the First Congregational Church of Hudson will offer a new way to worship. The eleven fifty-nine service (occurring at 11:59am) has been inspired by members of the church seeking a more casual, reflective way to connect with each other in a spiritual nature.
“I am honestly beside myself with excitement about providing multiple opportunities for worship in an attempt to meet the needs of our whole congregation,” said Senior Minister, Reverend Doctor Peter Wiley. “I am thrilled that we will continue to seek excellence in our traditional worship, which is at the heart of who we are as a community of faith. Even more, how wonderful and faithful that we are willing to risk and to love all the people of our church enough to make sure we do our very best to reach everyone’s worship needs.”
The liturgy of the service will be significantly different from the 9am and 10:30am services. The service will last approximately 30 minutes and will include an interpretive scripture presentation, a teaching moment and prayer time all interspersed with a variety of music presented by Janet Rhodes and Deborah Chaddock Brown, vocal leaders and led by Thomas M. Scott, PhD, Director of Music Ministries.
“I am excited and filled with joy about joining together in faith with those who might have spiritual needs that a traditional service doesn’t meet,” said Scott. “At the First Congregational Church, our motto is ‘Wherever you are on your journey, you are welcome here’ and the eleven fifty-nine service is an exciting new option available to the congregation and our community.”
