PLAN YOUR VISIT
We get it. Visiting a church for the first time can be a little weird--but it doesn't have to be. We're here to help!
During Summer Rhythms we're encountering God through different service formats each week, so here's a sneak peek of what you can expect.
Below that are some FAQ's that may answer other questions you already have.
Our Teaching Services will be mostly what has for years been a traditional Greenleaf Service: 20-25 minutes of worship, and a 30-35 minute sermon. Our approach to teaching from the Bible is from a perspective of mystery, wonder, questioning, and practicality.
Our Contemplative Services will be reflective, with more space made for stillness and silence. We will attune ourselves to God’s activity in our lives through a rhythm of communal prayers, worship songs, and meditative scripture readings.
These will be just like first Sundays, with kids PK4 and up joining the adults for teaching and Communion. Children are not the future of the Kingdom of God–they are the now of the Kingdom! We aim for these services to be relevant and accessible to them.
Worship & Prayer
In our Worship & Prayer Services we will invite the Holy Spirit’s presence through extended times of worship, interspersed with times of listening to the Lord and engaging in prayer ministry for one another.
In lieu of a traditional church service, we will engage in the spiritual practice of fellowship—relationships built around a shared meal in the presence of Divine Love. Even if you come empty handed, there’s a seat for you!
We end every service with Communion. In this simple yet profound act–which is a central sacrament and means of grace–we receive the life-giving and liberating death of Jesus on our behalf. All baptized believers are welcome to the table.
