We celebrate the fact that God’s body is diverse, and we attempt to acknowledge that diversity in our worship services. This happens in different ways as we have a variety of people who plan and lead worship. One week the praise band may provide music, the next week an organist or pianist will play, accompanied by the violin or clarinet. Usually we sing songs in English, but sometimes sing in Spanish, French or Swahili. Frequently young children are invited forward to play rhythm instruments during the opening songs – making a sometimes chaotic but always joyful noise! From week to week our services might be a bit different in style and implementation, but we hope that you will find them to be consistently spirit filled and Christ centered.
After the service we invite you to remain for a time of fellowship. Our narthex can get a bit crowded but we hope you will stay anyway! Potlucks (or summer picnics) are held immediately after the service many Sundays during the year – check the calendar for details and please join us! Visitors bring only appetites.
Sherman Street is a “come as you are” kind of church — you’ll find worshipers in jeans and sweatshirts and others in ties. We have lots and lots of kids. Many of the people who attend the church live within walking (or biking… or cross country skiing!) distance but others drive in. No matter how you get here or how you come, we would love to have you join us! Each year we get many visitors to the church, and each one’s presence is a gift to us.
