passing the peace in summer worship

During worship, we:

  • appreciate preaching that includes story-telling, humor, and relating our Biblical and denominational heritage to contemporary life.
  • enjoy community by passing the peace, sharing our joys and concerns during worship, and socializing at coffee hour after worship.
  • celebrate life events with baptisms, confirmations, ordinations, commissioning and installations of our elected leaders.
  • encourage participation of all ages by serving as liturgists, song-leaders, acolytes, musicians and speakers.

We celebrate the Lord’s Supper monthly;  all are welcome to the table at Waverly.

Music

From traditional hymns to gospel, classical to rock, Christian contemporary to blue grass, our music embraces not only our own representative cultures, but those which influence, challenge, and shape us. Waverly music focuses on building community through fellowship and fun, and creating incredible music together.

Chancel Choir

Waverly’s SATB choir sings weekly from September through May.  Adults and youth are welcome to join at any time. Rehearsals are typically:

  • Thursday nights, 7:30 – 9 pm
  • Sunday mornings, 9:30 – 10 am

Special Music

Many talented musicians call Waverly home. Ad hoc musical collaborations and soloists bring exceptional depth and breadth to worship on a regular basis, lead worship during special music Sundays, and also give the choir a break during summer months.
