Worship services take place every Sunday at 10:30 a.m. from the Sunday after Labor Day through Father’s Day (the third Sunday of June).
“What should I expect on Sunday morning?”
Services last about an hour. They typically include lighting of the chalice, announcements, hymns, music, readings, unison readings, silent meditation, and a sermon or homily. About one-quarter of our services are led by guest ministers or lay members of the congregation.
After the service, all are invited to our fellowship hour in the parish hall for conversation and light refreshments.
Theodore Parker Church offers a loop system for the hard of hearing. Hearing aid wearers with a “T” (telecoil) setting can now hear the service broadcast directly through their hearing aids. Others desiring hearing assistance may check out a portable receiver and headset from one of the greeters.
“What should I wear?”
Dress is casual. Many “regulars” wear jeans and sneakers. Others get a little more dressed up (khakis and a sweater or jacket, for example), but you will find few, if any, suits and ties. Children’s classes often involve physical movement and art projects, so children should dress appropriately. Shorts, T-shirts, and sandals are the typical attire for the informal services held during the summer.
