Taizé Services

Taize-style service is offered in the evening at the church at least once a semester, focusing on social issues appropriate to the time and season.  All are welcome. This is a quiet service of song, scripture, and silent periods of meditation designed to lead participants to contemplate and celebrate their relationship with God and with one another.  A lay committee designs and leads this service.

Modeled after the weekly services at the Taizé monastic community in France, it combines elements of prayer, singing, silence, and candlelight.  A hallmark of aTaizé service is the opportunity to light candles to represent prayers and intercessions.  The music is simple to learn and sing, yet harmonious (most of the songs can be learned by playing tracks on the Taizé web page.)
