Sunday Vespers

(Please note that Vespers is on hold until further notice)

Join us Sundays at 4:15PM

While Grace Pasadena continues offering online Sunday morning services, we are now hosting Sunday Vespers. This service is in-person and outdoor at the patio of our Sunday worship space. Vespers is a 30 minute service in the late afternoon/early evening for us to be together for encouragement, prayer, and Communion. “Vesper” means “evening” in Latin, and these services have been held in many Christian traditions for centuries.

While we cannot be together more freely in these times, the mission of Grace Pasadena has not changed: we want to experience and extend the grace of God in Jesus Christ together, in every sphere of life, and for the sake of our city and world. In accordance with our mission and for the safety of all who attend, we will adhere to guidelines released by state and local authorities. As a people who seek the good of our neighbor, we will also joyfully adhere to the following guidelines:

  •  You must register to attend. Space is limited.
  • Arrive between 4:00-4:10pm so we can begin promptly at 4:15pm. Enter through the patio gate along the parking lot. 
  •  Cloth masks (or face shields) and social distancing will be observed during Vespers. Even though the service is outdoors, we seek to honor the varying levels of concern with the utmost charity.
  • Bring a picnic blanket, folding chair or be prepared to stand through Vespers. Some patio chairs are available.
  • We will have music, but no corporate singing for the time being.
  • We encourage no-touch greetings and ask that socializing occur after the service in the park.
  • Sealed, prepackaged Communion will be distributed. Participation is voluntary.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available at the service.
  • Indoor restrooms will not be available. We have access to the patio only.
  • Please note that parking validation at the Holly St. garage is not available.
  • An order of worship for Vespers will be emailed to you Saturday evening or Sunday early afternoon. Please print a copy or follow along on your phone. Some copies will be available just in case.

Please help us adhere to these guidelines. Our ability to gather is dependent on everyone doing their part. This includes doing a health assessment before Vespers and canceling your reservation if you are not feeling well. If you decide to cancel your registration for any reason, please email Pastor Marc .

We long to be all together again. May we find hope in knowing God is at work among us even in these strange times.
