We have a culture that is informed and being refined by our values as listed below.
We have a culture that values both Traditional and non-traditional worship
We know who we are: we are genuine, creative, grateful, hospitable, a unified community and worshipful.
Although we are unified in worship, we are a diverse community of believers. Our culture values diversity in people, expression and gifting.
What to Expect
Our worship service begins at 10:30. First, while we ask you to dress modestly, feel free to dress comfortably. We want you to be as comfortable as possible and that starts before you leave the house. Some of our members are comfortable wearing more formal attire and some less formal. It’s up to you.
As you arrive, you will see take the stairs or the ramp up to the doors where you will be greeted by someone. Find a seat anywhere, there are no assigned seats. To get to the restrooms just go up through the door at the front and then down the stairs.
Once you get to your seat in the pew, you will find a small purple book called a Siddur. This book contains the liturgy and we use it in our worship so keep a copy of it with you. The words for the music we do will be projected on the screen up front. We will be singing a few songs and saying prayers using the prayer book and other prayers that don’t use the siddur.
Part of our liturgy uses the Torah scroll. This is called the Torah Service and below I will give you a brief summary of what to expect. During the Torah Service we will take out the Torah Scroll say some liturgically based prayers and then we will process the Torah around the congregation while singing. Our processional is a celebration and is not meant to worship the scroll. Rather it reminds us of a few things. First, we are reminded that the Word of the Lord went out before our ancestors when they moved. Therefore, it is a way Jewish people in synagogues each Saturday morning connect with our ancestors. For us as believers, it also reminds of who Yeshua is as the Word (expressed in the New Covenant book of John) and what he does for us.
At times, our service may vary from the general order above. If you visit on one of those days, we will let you know. After service, you are welcome to stay because we have a bite to eat and a time of fellowship called oneg.
The Messianic Minutes are a daily radio show aimed at bringing the Gospel to the Jewish people through Bible-believing Christian listeners. The program is hosted by Jeffrey D. Miller and Rabbi Ted Simon.
