Taize Prayer Service
Join us for a monthly Taizé Prayer Service at First Pres Church held the first Tuesday of each month, beginning on January 7, 2020. At 6:00 p.m. you are invited to a simple supper of soup and bread in the Social Hall. The Taizé Prayer Service will begin at 7:00 p.m in Monteith Hall.

What is a Taizé Service?
This style of worship was developed at Taizé, a monastic community located in Taizé, France, founded in the 1940’s by a Swiss named Roger Louis Schütz-Marsauche or Brother Roger. The “brothers” of the community have taken a vow of celibacy and are committed to a lifetime of simplicity, service, and community. There is an ecumenical emphasis at Taizé, which says the community “wants its life to be a sign of reconciliation between divided Christians and between separated peoples.”

A Taizé worship service involves sung and chanted prayers, meditation, a period of silence, liturgical readings, and icons. There is no preaching. The style of prayer practiced at Taizé has attracted many worshipers from around the globe and from many different denominations. The prayers consist of “short chants, repeated again and again,” according to an introduction in a Taizé songbook. “The words are sung over many times.”

Taizé Services have been a practice of worshipping here at First Pres on Ash Wednesday. Now, you will be able to worship in the manner of the Taizé Community on the first Tuesday of every month. All are welcome!
