Worship is at the core of our shared experience at Old North Church.
It is a time to celebrate the presence of God in our lives. Through word and music, scripture and sacrament, prayer and reflection, we mark the movement of the God’s Spirit within and among us as we work together at becoming the loving community Christ calls us to be.
Services are held at 8 and 10 am each Sunday morning. In addition to congregational singing, the later service features various choirs and musical instruments. The early service, while it does not include music, offers worshipers a chance for more quiet reflection. Both services provide the worshiper a chance to unwind from the worries of the week and be attentive to the Spirit of God.
Old North Church values the rich history of Protestant worship while remaining open to new ways of celebrating God’s presence. The sacrament of baptism is celebrated during the worship service by arrangement with the clergy. The sacrament of communion is celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. Children are welcome during the entire service, although most prefer to attend our church school program.
We welcome all who would join us in our spiritual pilgrimage. We come from many places along the path. Some of us are very progressive in our religious views. Some of us are quite traditional. But all of us are seeking a community that values the ways we differ just as it values all that we share. Worshipping at Old North Church is perhaps the best way to understand who we are and why we say all are welcome here.
