What's a worship service like?

Here are samples from our recent worship services -- sermons, orders of service and more. See more examples in the videos below.

"It takes a village..." How our worship service is built.

Video clips show some of the many ways our members become involved in worship. 

Our connection to our larger community

The recent video Hero Leaders shows examples of our services and how we carry our ideals to our larger community.

Worship

Worship is at the center of our life together.  Each Sunday at 10:30am we worship through word and meal, song and silence. We are called, nurtured and sent in the name of the Living Christ.

While our worship is shaped by the traditional form of the liturgy:  gathering, word, meal and sending, it is also influenced by our own particular flavor and joy.  A variety of voices lead us: children and adult choirs; numerous instrumentalists and cantors; accomplished accompanists; a rotation of assisting ministers; readers of all ages.

Children are warmly welcomed in worship and at the table. Parents and kids are invited to go in and out of the sanctuary as needed.

Here are a few of the things you will find as you worship at Our Saviour’s:

  • Engaging preaching
  • Lively and eclectic music -- not just familiar songs and hymns, but music from around the world and fresh new compositions from our own members
  • Careful attention to the beauty of the worship environment. Our architecture expresses our understanding of the Gospel. Our seating surrounds the table, baptismal font and reading desk. Spacious windows fill the space with natural light. Perhaps more important, they look onto Chicago Avenue and our Phillips neighborhood, reminding us that our life of faith calls us to be living and engaged in the world around us for the sake of our neighbors.
  • A strong sense of community (find examples in the sidebar to the left.)
