The Outdoor Church’s worship services are based on the Book of Common Prayer and incorporate other prayers that have particular meaning to our congregants. They can range in length from 20 to 40 minutes.
The most notable difference between Outdoor Church services and most other worship services is that, in place of a sermon, the congregation is invited to share their own responses to the day’s scripture reading. All viewpoints are welcome and contribute to a fuller, richer conversation.
Everyone is welcome to participate in our services as they feel comfortable: to take communion or not, to say a prayer or not, to sit down, stand up, or even walk around!
After the benediction, we share a time of fellowship. Congregants are offered sandwiches, socks, and toiletries. At our Sunday morning service, we also enjoy hot coffee and donuts!
