Each Sunday morning Chapelwood offers a Contemplative Worship experience in the Chapel. Each service is unique and offers extended times of stillness, Scripture reading, music, sacred reading (lectio divina), healing prayer, meditation, and Holy Communion. Though each service is different, there are three common elements.
MEDITATION: Each service provides extended quiet time for worshipers to reflect and sit with the extravagant love of God. Scripture passages and quotes from those who have walked with God before us are provided for meditation in the weekly worship guide.
HOLY COMMUNION: Holy Communion is offered weekly in Contemplative Worship. Liturgies from a variety of Christian traditions are utilized. For all of our differences in heritage, we come to a common table, the Table of our Lord Jesus Christ.
HEALING PRAYER: After each service participants are invited to experience God's healing. Trained members of Chapelwood's Praying Ministry are available to pray with anyone who would like prayer. Those who desire to receive prayer and be anointed with oil (according to James 5:14) may request this ministry as well.
