Why and How We Worship

Worship is the central act of our life together and is at the heart of McDougall Church.

Stained glassWorship is our time to enter into the Sacred Presence: as a community of people to respond to God, to be aware of one another as unique and special people, and to become aware of what God is calling and asking us to do in the world - as individuals and as a congregation.

Worship is something we can do every day as individuals through prayer, awareness, meditation, and Bible study. In our own way, we can give thanks for all that is worthy of our gratitude and praise: our joys and our sorrows, our triumphs and our failures, our strength and our weakness.

Worship is corporate when we gather as a community of people journeying together. We worship God to find comfort, connection, healing, wisdom and inspiration, challenge and motivation for the living of our days. We respond in gratitude.

Worship helps to provide a spiritual oasis for renewal and growth.

Worship includes many forms of expression to engage our faith and to celebrate life: through music, stories, silence, sermons, prayers of different forms, scripture, sacraments (Holy Communion and Baptism), candles, images, symbols and drama.

We believe that worship is a response to our experience of life that involves celebrating, healing and growing the human spirit.

After Church Community Time:
You are invited to join us for coffee in the Banquet Hall (lower level) following the service. Not only is this a time for coffee, but a time for conversation and connection: getting to know one another a bit better, and to share something of our common life together, both within and outside of church. This is a highlight of our Sunday morning gathering. So, please join us!
