You are invited! December 9 at 5pm
The 5pm service has always had a special spot in the life of Restoration. The later time of day and the smaller size offer the possibility of a more intimate worship experience.
We want to acknowledge that when we launched Incarnation, we sent some of our dear friends and many of our faithful, fellow, 5pm worship go-ers! When a community chooses to change by multiplying itself in another part of the city, there is an opportunity to take stock and discuss ‘what could be’.
The staff and clergy would like to have a ‘Town Hall’ meeting at the 5pm on Sunday, December 9. We want to hear what this particular service means to you and how it is important to your worship of God and your experience of community at Restoration. We also want to hear what you would like the 5pm worship service to be.
We love being Anglican and leading liturgy that requires ‘the work of the people’ in kneeling, praying out loud, singing, listening, eating, and drinking. You are already participating in this liturgy by attending the service and many of you are already serving so that the rest of us can participate in the service. THANK YOU! There is an opportunity for more people to serve before, during, and after the liturgy. We can’t do it without you. So, we’ll be talking about that, too.
Would you mark December 9 on your calendar? We will have our regular Advent liturgy. When we get to the ‘sermon part’, we will take some time to talk about our hopes and dreams for the 5pm service, then we will close with Eucharist. After the blessing, we will roll over to Sunrise Senior Living on Glebe Road to sing carols and hark the herald!
It will be a special evening and I hope to see you there.
