EPIC ONE EIGHT
Epic One Eight
Sundays Sept-May: 9am + 11am in the Worship Center
EpicOneEight is inspired by the acronym EPIC - Experiential, Participatory, Image-Rich, and Community, and the verse, "You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea, Samaria and to the ends of the earth." Acts 1:8.
Epic is Gloria Dei's unique worship experience with values of connection and authenticity. The service features participatory sermons, a band that ranges from acoustic, to rock, to jazz, to bluegrass on any given Sunday, children setting the communion table, and a sending blessing to the congregation by the congregation.
Sundays year-round: 8:45am in the Sanctuary
A worship experience rooted in our rich liturgical tradition, The Table includes diverse leadership from pastors, worship assistants and cantors, and an exploration of a variety of musical styles and dynamic messages grounded in the the gospel. A Kid’s Corner is set up in the front of the Sanctuary as a place for children and their families to engage in creativity and expression during worship and as a reminder of the wonder we can learn from them in our everyday lives.
Wednesdays during the School Year: 6:30pm in the Sanctuary
Water's Edge is a contemplative service designed to center ourselves in the middle of our busy weeks. Inspired by the families and individuals that gather each week, Water's Edge features a message delivered by a leader and a youth, contemplative practices such as meditation and a singing bowl, and acoustic music.
