Worship

As We Worship

Worship is a high priority at Ravensworth, even and especially as we meet to worship online. We seek to honor God through prayer, music, congregational participation, observing the seasons of the church year, and following the Revised Common Lectionary. Plus, we are privileged week in and week out to hear the excellent preaching of our pastor, Rev. Dr. Leah Grundset Davis and other preachers. We think you will find worship at Ravensworth inspiring, intellectually and spiritually stimulating, reverent, and challenging.  Join us next Sunday and find out for yourself. If you want to listen to past sermons, follow this link!

Worship begins at 10am (July 4-August 29) and 11 am (Sept. 5-June) via our Facebook page, YouTube, our homepage, or you can call in to listen via Zoom. Please look at the homepage for the most up to date info on how we are currently worshipping.


Indoor in-person worship-

Children are an integral part of the faith community at Ravensworth.  In the middle of every Sunday service, a member of the ministerial staff or a volunteer from the congregation invites the children to the front of the sanctuary for Children’s Time, which often features a lesson based on the scripture readings for that week.

School-Age Children (1st grade and up)

Older children join their families in the sanctuary for worship. We have a children’s table with activities that correspond with the theme and biblical text for the day. We believe children in worship is an important part of our life together.

Pre-School and Nursery Age Children (birth-kindergarten)

Children Kindergarten age and younger have childcare available for the worship service (beginning September 12, 2021). There are two areas, both entered through Room #125, one for infants and toddlers, and one for those ages three and older.

During Children’s Time in the worship service, the older pre-schoolers will be escorted into the sanctuary to participate in the lesson, then led out again to return to the child care area.

Paid child-care workers, along with rotating volunteers, run the child care areas each Sunday.  In addition to individual attention, the staff and volunteers offer safe, age-appropriate play materials and activities for all infants and toddlers. All childcare workers and volunteers go through CAPP and appropriate background checks for the safety of our children.
