If you would like to attend Queen Anne UMC, you will be welcome. It is our dream to fill the church with the noise of children and to provide experiences that bring you into the presence of the Most Holy.
During worship, you will find that we sing songs deeply rooted in the tradition of the Church as well as songs written in the 21st Century.
Every week we celebrate Holy Communion, and you are invited to come and feast at Christ’s holy table.
We use screens for those who like to sing with heads raised and for whom worship is enhanced by viewing videos and images during the sermons. For those who find meaning in holding worship books and hymnals, those are provided as well.
We follow the lectionary – a series of assigned Biblical texts shared by most
mainline denominations. We bring the mystery of the ancient church into contact with our postmodern world believing that old and new can go well with one another.
We sing the Psalms and stand for the Gospel, chime bells, and still ourselves in silence. But, every now and then, you will find that we are also doing a ritual dreamed up by our own community.
Children are welcome to remain in worship, but we also have a family room for kids who need space to make noise or roam around. We also have a children’s program concurrent with worship that is geared for preschool through elementary ages. This program includes a lesson, prayer, a project/activity, and play.
Worship is central to the life of the community, and it is directly connected to the important work of cultivating a faithful life that is lived every day.
Classes, retreats, prayer services, time spent sharing faith in homes — these are as important as weekly corporate worship.
A community of faith is only as strong as the bonds formed within the community. This is what keeps us accountable to the Gospel and sustains us during times of spiritual crisis. Spiritual community takes both time and intentionality.
Worship sends us into the world empowered by the Holy Spirit to be agents of compassion and liberation in a hurting and broken world. There is no greater joy than to see the world as God does and to labor as God does to make it more perfect in love.
Therefore, it is our duty to one another enter into the passion of the world for the sake of all of our healing. A faithful life is one engaged in the pain of the world and alive in the joy of God.
