Our Sunday morning worship service at the Congregational Church of Jefferson Park is at 11 AM (Summer 10 AM, June 13 through mid-September).
This service is a time for praising and giving thanks to God, sharing the joys and concerns of our lives, and being renewed by the Word of God through scripture, preaching, sacrament, and song. We are an inclusive, Open and Affirming congregation that welcomes all people, no matter where they are on their faith and life journeys, who seek meaning in their lives and a caring community of others who are willing to accompany them. Our children and youth join us at the beginning of each worship and then depart for their Sunday School classes after the Pastor’s Children’s Message.
The worship materials for the upcoming service are available by clicking on the link below. They are available on Thursday for the upcoming Sunday's service. These materials include the Order of Worship and Scripture Readings for the week. On the first Sunday of each month the Liturgy for Communion is also included.
Would you like to lead prayers and read scripture in the upcoming weeks? Liturgists and announcers are always needed. Materials will be emailed to you in advance.
How about hosting the coffee hour after a Sunday service? If you volunteer, the duties are to bring modest treats such as donuts, cookies, coffee cakes, and/or a vegetable tray and then help with setting up and serving after the church service. We will make the coffee and provide the other necessities.
On the first Sunday of each month, we celebrate the Lord’s Supper and invite all people to gather at Christ’s table. On communion Sundays, our children join us.
We are blessed by our musical heritage–the fine choir enhances our worship. We also value congregational singing and enjoy a diverse mix of hymns and responses.
Our choir meets every Sunday at 9:30 for rehearsal before our 11:00 worship service. New Members are always welcome.
In June the choir presents the Strawberry festival in Mayflower Hall. The music comes from musical tunes all walks of life with a different thyme each year. During intermission a free will offering is held. Following the show fresh strawberry on cake or ice cream, Sundaes, hotdogs, pop & coffee are sold. The money raised is used to purchase new sheet music & maintain their robes. The choir takes the summer off for a well deserved rest.
