A feast of words and music
On Sunday mornings at 11 am, we celebrate a broadly Christian liturgy in a rhythm dating to 1928: ecumenical worship with readings from many world traditions and sermons from community and faculty leaders. Communion is offered freely to all who choose to receive, from all practices.
These services feature the E.M. Skinner Organ, the Laura Spelman Rockefeller Carillon, and the voices of students and professionals alike in musical settings past and present. Newly commissioned works by our resident campus composers and many others are regularly premiered. At least once per quarter, the Rockefeller Children's Choir performs exuberant works speaking across traditions. On each Christmas Eve at 4 pm, a service of Lessons and Carols brings everything together with an unforgettable pageant and a space full of candlelight.
Upcoming Sundays June 16 through August 25
Sunday worship continues with a 40 minute service of scripture, featuring the historic and regal E.M. Skinner organ, op. 634. This shortened service is intended to provide some relief from the intense summer heat. University Organist Thomas Weisflog and guests play organ classics from throughout the ages. At 11:45 am Mr. Weisflog offers an organ demonstration featuring a short work.
