Each year during the seasons of Advent and Lent, we gather for midweek worship to prepare our hearts for the celebrations of Christmas and Easter. For several seasons now, worshippers have gathered during the evening hours at TCC to sing, pray, listen to the word, and participate in our liturgy. If you have not attended an Evensong service at TCC, we encourage you to attend and discover how this midweek worship service can deepen your faith.
Join us! Thursdays, starting February 18th through April 3rd via ZOOM, 6:00-6:30pm.

What you can expect:
Though every service has a “liturgy,” our Evensong service is designed for more active participation from the congregation throughout the short service. At 30 minutes long, each moment is packed with meaning as we speak and sing scripture together. We pray in unison a prayer of confession, prayer of illumination for the reading of God’s word, and a prayer of thanksgiving at the close of the service. These repeated prayers offer God a chance to work humility, teachability, and gratitude into our hearts. For many at TCC, this service might feel different than what we are used to on a Sunday morning, but those that have attended have felt their hearts enriched by the posture of praise at Evensong. Music accompanies most of the spoken and sung liturgy, and there is a short devotional message from a pastor as well.
From it’s inception in 2017, our Evensong service been about spiritual formation. Check out this video made for the inaugural service that explains how God forms us through worship.
