Worship

We believe God is present wherever God’s people gather. That is why during normal times, we worship together each week and why we encourage everyone to participate in worship. Since mid March 2020, and until we determine it is safe to meet together again, we are worshipping with a shared pre-recorded video. Contact the church office  if you would like to have the link emailed to you each Saturday. See past services on our YouTube channel. You can also access a selection of past sermons on our podcast

Sunday Morning Congregational Service

Pre-COVID practices: We gather every Sunday to worship together. Sunday morning worship begins at 9 a.m. during the school year and 10 a.m. during the summer months (early June-August). Our worship follows the Common Liturgy and we use the Mennonite-Anabaptist resources Hymnal: A Worship Book, Sing the Story, and Sing the Journey to make music together. A new Mennonite worship book, Voices Together, will become a regular part of our worship when we gather again in person. When we are together, we include dramatic readings, instrumental music, and visual arts in many of our services. Each service often includes a time of sharing, when we bring our concerns and joys to our community and ask for their prayerful company.

Sunday Evening Contemplative Service

To serve those who prefer a contemplative worship experience, Community Mennonite Church offers a Sunday evening service centered on contemplative prayer. Our Contemplative Service meets typically in the church building's Fellowship Hall. Due to Covid restrictions, it currently meets via Zoom at 7 p.m. every Sunday. Contact the church office to request a link at cmc_office@cmcva.org. Check out the bulletin we use to guide our worship.
