Our worship inspires us and challenges us

Worship service small

We believe that worship happens whenever we love God and share God’s love with others. Praying, singing, helping others, creating beauty, living into our full potential—all of these are acts of worship. So whether worship is a time for you to recharge your spirit or discover inspiration, we want to create a sacred space for you to listen for God’s voice and experience the presence of the Spirit at work among us. We also believe that through worship we hear the prophetic voice of God calling us to work for justice and create a better world.

Our Sunday morning worship service at Vienna Baptist does not fit neatly into one of the two well-known and well-worn categories: “contemporary” or “traditional.” Our worship is interactive, participatory and focused on God. In worship we celebrate the good news of Jesus and the presence of the Holy Spirit. We employ both ancient and modern forms that help us touch the transcendent as we seek a divine perspective on our lives in the world. Because our congregation is diverse in age, we use worship songs and texts that are ageless. Because our congregation is unified around our mission, we worship God together in one service on Sunday mornings. Because our congregation is part of a worldwide communion, we celebrate the many types of worship we find among God’s people. Although imperfectly, we have committed ourselves to worship that challenges us and inspires us.

Childcare is provided for birth through three years of age. Children four years old through 3rd Grade attend the first part of worship with their parents and leave the sanctuary before the sermon to attend age appropriate Children’s Worship with their teachers.

We invite you to join us on Sundays at 11 am in the sanctuary for our weekly worship service. You can also worship with us via live stream every Sunday by clicking here. To listen to previous sermons, visit the Sermons page.
