Make Your Own Path to God


Experiential Worship

Join us as we launch a brand new experiential worship service, designed to be inclusive of individuals with all abilities and mental capacities. A place where the abled and differently-abled, the neurotypical and non-neurotypical are invited to a worship that invites each individual to experience and make their own path to God. We want to start by Celebrating Christmas Worship!

TrailPraisers: Christmas Worship Service

What to Expect

Come to an Interactive Worship that has optional elements (Spoken, Physical, Creative, Musical, Meditational) to include all peoples, abilities, and faiths while we explore God together.

Story of Christmas, Luke 2

Our worship will feature the Story of Christmas, Luke 2, told by Professional Storyteller Pastor Tim Coombs. Specific worship activities may include:

  • Participatory Prayer
  • Christmas Songs
  • Story
  • A Nativity Craft
  • A Bethlehem Walk
  • Gathering with Snacks

As we learn together, we hope to share in all the ways one might find a path to God, so that our own experiences are enriched.

Join us!

We are looking for participants in our monthly worship including future worship partners to help us  plan the worship experience or offer ideas and creative ways to share about God through music, art, story, and more. Whether you are able to offer something once a year, for every service, or simply have an idea, please let us know.

Keep informed of all our announcements and activities on our Facebook Page: TrailPraisers
