Worship

Christmas Eve Service

A Candlelight Service 4:30 p.m.

An annual service of scripture lessons and traditional carols that retells the ancient story of the birth of our Lord. The service emphasizes the steadfastness of God’s love and the Lord’s desire to be closer to us. Special music, including a vocal quintet, brass ensemble, and our magnificent tracker organ, is an important part of this worship experience. The service closes with a congregational candle lighting.

Easter Service

A celebration of the Lord’s Resurrection and His gift of Divine Love.

We celebrate with a communion service focused on rededicating ourselves to a life of love and faith.

During the summer months we hold an abbreviated schedule of 11:00 am Sunday services.

Sunday Worship 11am

The rich heritage of classical music and traditional hymns are an important part of Swedenborg Chapel’s worship experience. While some churches tell their members what to think, we focus on how to think. In other words, we believe that what we do is often less important than understanding why we do what we do. Our worship and our lives center around that basic understanding. It is our belief that a contemplative service style, with its focus on thoughtful reading and interpretation of the Lord’s Word, offers the best environment for bringing about profound, soul-transforming change.

1st Sunday Communion

We celebrate the Lord’s Supper on the first Sunday of each month. Because we believe that the Lord is constantly reaching out to each of us, we also believe that His table is open to everyone. We welcome all in attendance, regardless of religious affiliation or personal belief, to partake in the sacrament of the Holy Supper. We celebrate with both wine and grape juice.
