WORSHIP & MUSIC

Experience sacred worship through prayer, song & scripture.

We gather on Sunday morning at 8:30 and 11:00 to worship God. Worship at Idlewild brings its members into the presence of the sacred through prayer, song, the reading of scripture and its faithful and imaginative interpretation.

Our worship focuses on the challenges of contemporary life as we seek to know and follow God. Shaped by worship, we seek to share God’s grace through education, fellowship, music, and inclusive outreach ministries to those in physical and spiritual need. Beneath our similarities Idlewild members express and respect a diversity of approaches to belief. Most are seekers, confident in our beliefs but open to new revelations and deeper levels of spirituality. 

The sermons honor the best of Biblical scholarship along with the compassion of Jesus and in prayer and sacrament we find the Risen Christ present.

Music at Idlewild is a vehicle for prayer. Music’s primary expression is the participation of all who are gathered for worship. The congregation’s song is supported and embellished by organ, choir, handbells, and other musical instruments.

By following along in the worship bulletin, the first time worshipper can easily navigate the service. On a second visit, you’ll know exactly what to do.

The flower ministry makes sure there are the beautiful flowers in the Sanctuary each Sunday. On Monday the large arrangements are made into small bouquets and delivered to hospital patients and shut-ins. If you would like to give flowers in memory or in honor of someone special, or simply donate to the flower fund, please call Buff Adams, 818-5567.
