At all worship services at House of Prayer, all who desire to receive the body and blood of Christ are welcome at the Lord’s table. Our bread is made with milk and honey so that we can “taste and see that the Lord is good.” Bread and wafers, wine and grape juice, and gluten-free wafers are expressions of this Eucharistic hospitality. Those who commune dip their bread into chalices for intinction or drink from the common cup.
May we become what we receive.
Join us for coffee hour following the Sunday service and come to Godly Play, Sunday School, and Youth Group which meet weekly, as do frequent Adult Forums.
Worship during Lent
Sunday worship includes personal “stories of sin and grace” offered by a member of the congregation as part of our corporate confession and forgiveness. Each week during worship, a Lenten symbol (robe, crown of thorns, spear, etc) is placed upon the rough-hewn cross at the front of the sanctuary as a reminder that our Lenten journey will lead us to the cross.
Holden Evening Prayer
Each Wednesday in Lent, a simple, lovely service of Evening Prayer is sung. The service includes scripture and a short reflection, holy communion, and a moment of laying on of hands for healing for those who desire it. Holden Evening Prayer, written by Marty Haugen, was commissioned by Holden Village, a Lutheran outdoor ministry in Washington state.
A supper of soup and bread precedes the service at 6:00.
