All are welcome and accepted
Due to health and safety concerns cause by the coronavirus, we are suspending live worship for the time being. We will be hosting services online only.
Watch online at hydeparkumc.org/live or on our Facebook page. Services online will take place on Sunday mornings at 9:30 and 11 a.m.
Come as you are to experience a casual, intimate and welcoming worship service that includes elements such as music, Scripture, a message, silence, discussion and Communion.
From the covenant of this emerging new faith community: “We are people from different places and backgrounds. We gather in community to worship God, practice silence and serve others. We foster important conversation and connection with God and each other. We participate in efforts that support positive community change through art, and give voice to societal issues such as homelessness. We are discovering together the ways in which we will bless the city and be blessed by the city.” All are invited.
Weekly Meditation and Silence
We don’t get much silence in our world. At The Portico, we value the benefits of sitting in silence in community; we weave the practice of silent meditation into most of the things we do. We teach contemplation, Centering Prayer and a variety of different methods, yet all traditions are welcome.
