Taize Service for July 16, 2020


Dear Members and Friends of Sylvania United Church of Christ:

It is again the third Thursday of the month, the day we normally gather for a Service of Taize in the Chapel at 7 p.m.  As with last month, we cannot meet in person for this service, but we can provide a service in the manner of Taize by video. With the service leadership provided by Ann Lindsley and Jean Buckwell, music accompaniment by Sally Mossing, we have put together a YouTube video to allow us an opportunity to worship together. 

While you can view this video at anytime, we encourage you to "gather" at 7PM this evening (our usual Taize time) to experience this service as a community.  I encourage you to set up your own “worship” space if you’d like – colored cloth, lighted candles, artwork with spiritual meaning for you – in preparation for the worship service. 

Feel free to participate for the full service (about 30 minutes) or to view it in parts.  Use the video in a way that most meaningfully helps you in prayer and worship.

Blessings to you and your family,

Pastor Mary Meadows
Sylvania United Church of Christ
