All are welcome and accepted

Hyde Park United Methodist offers a 5:30 p.m. worship service at The Portico campus.

Come as you are to experience a casual, intimate and welcoming worship service including elements such as music, Scripture, a message, silence, discussion and Communion.

Each fifth Sunday of the month is dedicated to serving in our community.

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.

Experience connection with God and community through the practice of silence. The gathering occurs in a serene setting, surrounded with beautiful stained glass and candles.
