You will receive a warm welcome when attending Meridian UCC’s worship services. “Frog Ponders” are open hearted, open minded and welcoming to all. Our current* online worship services allow our congregation to gather from all over the country. (*We plan to move into hybrid services — online and in-person — at a future date, still to be determined.)
Every Zoom worship service begins with the ringing of our historic bell. (No matter our locations, we can all hear the ringing of our bell!) A Zoom link and a worship bulletin — your guide for following along with the service — are emailed on Saturdays. You may join this email list by completing this registration form.
Every service includes music, a reflection, scripture readings, and either a sermon or “Circles of Sharing” — where members are able to personally share aspects of their life journey.
Our caring community always welcomes the concerns and the joys of each person. Time is taken for worshipers to request prayers for ourselves and those we love, for our community, and for our world.
Engaging and uplifting music, the language of spirit and soul, highlights our Sunday morning services.
We celebrate Communion the first Sunday of every month. We encourage lighting a prayer candle at home. During online services, text of the readings and songs appears on-screen.
At the conclusion of worship, we transition into a time of community sharing. We share announcements concerning the life of the church and opportunities for service — a reminder that life with God is as much about Monday through Saturday as it is about Sunday. We also get to hear a bit more about each other’s lives. During this time of sharing attendees are free to engage by joining in — or simply sit back, relax and enjoy the conversation!
Our convenient Wilsonville location for in-person gatherings — currently limited to service projects and community camaraderie — is located near Boeckman and Wilsonville Roads. Our parking lot is sizable, and wheelchair ramps access the buildings.
At Frog Pond Church you can expect warmth, acceptance, inspiration and a feeling of community as we join together to give thanks for the blessings of life, and to share life’s joys and struggles in community and in love.
