be still: a contemplative worship experience

Be still and know that I am God.
- Psalm 46:10


Drawing from the tradition of Compline - the service of evening prayers - our contemplative worship incorporates both ancient and emerging spiritual traditions, using a diversity of resources from Christian communities across the globe. Worshipers can expect a warm, welcoming, sacred space lit by candlelight, prayer, silence, and simple, distinctive music that calls us to a richer communion with God and our neighbor. Although there may be short readings, there will be no sermons or homilies, leaving room for your own prayerful ponderings.

Highlands United Methodist Church offers contemplative worship on the second Sunday of each month at 8 p.m. in the sanctuary. All Are Welcome.
