What to Expect in Worship
There are places where we bow to show reverence for Christ, and places where we kneel to humble ourselves before God. There are times we cross ourselves as a way of using our entire bodies to worship and remember Christ’s sacrifice. And we read ancient creeds and prayers together aloud to affirm our faith. The best way to learn this is to sit toward the back so you can watch people in front of you and follow along. You will notice that no two people do the same thing! So there is no “wrong” way.
Trust us, many people find this a bit intimidating at first, but later fall in love with the reverence of our ancient worship.

Blood of Christ, Cup of our Salvation: Then a person will come by with the Chalice. This is a little intimidating if you aren’t used to it, but very beautiful. You can gently hold the cup, and with the server, guide it up to your lips and take a small sip of the wine. Or if you held onto the bread, you may dip it into the wine and then eat it. Many who were raised in the Roman Catholic tradition choose to hand the wafer to the cup-bearer, and he or she will dip it in the wine and gently place it on your tongue.
