Worship at LOUCC is central to our life as a community. Our weekly and special worship services anchor us in hope, build us up in spirit, and send us forth to be the peace-loving, justice-making people of God. In our worship gatherings, we find inspiration through music and poetry, scripture and prophetic challenge, silence and artistic expression. We value diverse voices in worship and regularly rely on both lay and ordained leadership. We encourage people to share their gifts of art, music, drama, and speaking as part of our worship life.
Our Sunday morning worship begins at 10:30 am on each week. Throughout the year, we also hold special services to mark particular days in the Christian calendar (Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Easter, Pentecost) as well as other occasions such as an Earth Day service each spring, an outdoor worship service each July, a Blessing of the Animals service in August, and a Longest Night service of comfort in December. Worship also takes place during times of special significance — baptisms, weddings, memorial services — where we mark the passage of time in our life before God.
