Worship has been one of the central weekly events for Labyrinth since our founding in 2013. We gather each Sunday evening at 6 p.m. during the school year to make music, meaning, and connections in our sacred space. You can also join us virtually using the Zoom link below. Everyone is welcome, no matter where you are on your spiritual journey.
Sunday evening worship returns August 29 at 6 p.m.
what to expect this semester
What we're talking about:
This semester, we’ll be looking at the gospel of Mark, the oldest account of Jesus’ life—and the weirdest. (Seriously, we have hangry Jesus cursing a fig tree, demons being cast out into a herd of pigs, and some really weird advice about cutting off your hand.) Each Sunday, Rene and Anna will unpack one of these strange stories or teachings and reimagine it for our lives.
What we do in worship:
Most weeks, worship starts with announcements followed by reading our covenant of presence together. Then we sing a song of gathering. After that, we’ll read the scripture and have a few minutes to discuss, reflect, or respond to the text in other ways. Then we’ll sing another song before the spoken word (usually a sermon, but sometimes a group discussion or other activity). After the spoken word, we sing a centering song and move into a time of prayer for each other. We share things we want others to hold in the light in the coming week, then sing a final song of sending before the benediction.

how to get involved
Serve as a liturgist
Each week, the liturgist leads parts of worship such as the Call to Presence, lighting the candle, reading scripture, and leading the Community Prayers. All of the parts are already scripted or can be on request.
