WORSHIP WITH MERGING WATERS

We live out our faith in the work of mission, reflection, and
community throughout the week. 

Worship is a Spiritual Practice that provides the opportunity to find comfort, challenge, and inspiration to support our daily lives of faith.

As of Sunday Sept 12, 2021 we have begun integrating our buildings into worship. This is a work in progress and so your patience is appreciated
The current proposed plan is to meet in-person and online every Sunday except the first Sunday of each month
to allow us to sing and partake of the sacraments together.
This is sure to change at various points depending on the progress of the ongoing pandemic.
[scroll down to find worship for this and past weeks]

We continue to provide opportunities for spiritual practice and worship through video and Zoom below and in person
Participate  as fully as possible   

Here's a great beginner's video on how to use ZOOM
