Summer Worship

Worship is the heart of our life at St. Columba’s, and that life continues all summer long. We come together to be refreshed, to renew our connection to God, to one another and to the world around us.

We welcome people of all ages, offering music of diverse styles and preaching that seeks to bring the Gospel to life. All Sunday morning services in the summertime take place in the Church Nave. We invite you to come as you are and be sure to join us for fellowship in the Common after each service.

Worship Services

Summer Worship

June 3 - Sept. 2, 2018

Sundays
8 am in the Church Nave

Holy Eucharist with sermon and no music. Quiet and contemplative.

9:15 am in the Church Nave
This family-friendly service offers a rich worship experience for pre-school children and their families. There is lively singing, and the children gather in front of the altar as a story-teller shares the gospel and message geared for children. This service eases the transition for children making the shift from Great Hall worship to the Church Nave when they reach school-age in the fall.

10:30 am in the Church Nave
Eucharist with a summer vibe, featuring our summer singers and ringers. Come as you are!

Please join us for cold beverages, doughnuts and fellowship in the Common after each service.

Sunday Child Care

Children are welcome at all services. Child care is available for infants and children up to age 3 Sunday mornings from 10:15 am–11:30 am in Rm 322, on the third floor of the building (Albemarle Street wing).

Summer Forum: "Burning Questions and Conversations"

Sundays, 9:45 am (Great Hall) and 11:30 am (Church Nave)
What do we do every week that we don’t think about? If you've ever sat in a pew and wondered why we say what we say and what it really means, then this journey course is for you! This summer, we'll talk about everything from Alleluia and the Creed to the songs we sing and what it means to be a community of faith. Starting June 10, bring your "burning questions" (or post them on the burning bush in the Common) and join the conversation. Contact: Amy Molina-Moore

Weekday Worship Services

Morning Prayer: 8:45 am, Monday – Friday
Start your day with Morning Prayer led each weekday morning by a lay leader. Appointed lectionary readings for the day, beautiful canticles and collects from the Book of Common Prayer, and a time of prayer for the world, the church and community.

Midday Bible Break: Tuesdays, 12:15-1 pm in Rm 220
Looking to create more space for God in your life? Come to our Midday Bible Break, a time for reading and reflecting on Scripture.

Work downtown? Wednesdays, 12:15-1 pm at the Kogod Courtyard in the National Portrait Gallery (8th St NW & F St NW). Download this app, and leave The Good Book at home. Contact: Amy Molina-Moore
