Circular Church gathers for prayer and praise in several different ways and at different times. The following is a list of our regular services.
Morning Worship (Sundays at 8:30 AM and 11:00 AM)  
This service uses a traditional format with choir and organ, preaching and the celebration of the sacraments. It begins with a time of exchanging greetings and making announcements, then proceeds through the drama of worship following what Matthew Fox called the four movements of Christian spirituality: via positiva, via negativa, via creativa, and via transformativa.  A larger congregation appreciates the celebration of God’s love in a vibrant and diverse community.
Jazz Vespers (Second Sunday at 6:00PM) 
Using the talents of guest jazz and blues musicians as well as some in the congregation, this service captures the freedom and improvisation of the jazz medium to worship in a new style and with pulsing energy. This unconventional service draws many visitors.
Special Worship Services mark special occasions in the life of the Church. These include: 
  • Ash Wednesday Love Feast (Agape)
  • Good Friday Tenebrae Service  
  • Earth Sabbath
  • Celebration Sunday (when children and youth lead worship)
  • Christmas Eve Candlelight Communion
  • weddings
  • memorial services/funerals
  • healing services when requested by members of the congregation

Our sanctuary is fully accessible by wheelchair via ramp.  Our reception hall and adjoining church school spaces are accessible by elevator.  Hearing enhancement devices, large print hymnals, large print bible and large print bulletins are available from the greeters before the worship service.  If you find challenges to your full participation in our worship and church community, please speak to a greeter or our pastor.
