Worship & Sermons

Worship at The University Church

If you’ve wondered what you can expect at a worship gathering of The University Church, please come and see! When we gather for worship, we pray together, hear Scripture read and a message delivered, sing together, and celebrate Holy Communion.

When we celebrate Holy Communion, everyone is welcome to participate. We see Holy Communion as a sacrament, a word that comes from the Latin, sacramentum, typically used in the sense of a vow or promise, and which was the word commonly employed to translate the Greek term, mysterion. The English word “communion” is a contraction of “common union”. From the words alone we get a sense of communion as something to do with promises made, common union expressed and a mystery!

Over the centuries, Christians have come to understand communion (or Eucharist or the Lord’s Supper) in many ways.  One of the ways of understanding that is helpful to us is detailed in a booklet entitled, “This Holy Mystery” which can be obtained free of charge as a pdf file here.

If you have questions about communion, please feel free to contact our pastor.

At our 9:30 a.m. service, we have programming for children and at our 11:15 a.m. service, childcare for little ones is available. At our 5:00 p.m. Vespers Service, children are invited stay with their families in the sanctuary.

We live-stream our Sunday services each week and if you can’t attend in person, you can watch here:
