Worship Schedule

Sunday morning worship is at the heart of our community. During the first half of the worship service, we hear The Word, and reflect on it during a sermon or discussion.  The second half of the service is Holy Communion, when we break bread together and share wine, as a symbol of God among us.

Grape juice and gluten-free wafers are available upon request at all services. All who seek God and are drawn to Jesus Christ are welcome to receive Holy Communion.

Our Healing Ministry offers each member of the congregation the opportunity to have one of our healing ministers pray over them at the altar during Holy Communion. You may also request private healing prayer after the service.

Each week, immediately after the service, we have a chance to visit together during Coffee Hour. This important time of the week, hosted by a church family, allows us to catch up with old and new friends.

3 Weeks of Pre-Advent
Sunday, November 10:
At Holy Spirit Verona we share in three weeks of "Pre-Advent."  This is the three Sundays between All Saints and Advent 1.  During this time we strongly encouraged you to take an intentional “pause” before the waiting and preparing of Advent.  Advent used to be seven weeks, up until the 7th century, and there is a small movement within the Church to return to that (see www.theadventproject.org).  Many of the scripture readings and prayers post All Saints give a hint or leaning towards Advent, so Father Jerry says... why not just go there.
