Join Us For Worship
Here at Scarritt Bennett Center we have two worship services each week. Tuesdays in the Chapel, a service of preaching, scripture, prayer and music is held every Tuesday at 12:30-1:00 in Wightman Chapel. Vespers & All That Jazz is held each Sunday evening from 6:30-7:15. This is a contemplative service with poetry, contemporary readings, scripture, prayer and all the music in the jazz format. See all summer events.
Our summer schedule for the Tuesdays service is:
June 19 – Brian Marcoulier Bellevue United Methodist Church
June 26 – A Jazz Service
July 3 – “Bold Women” led by Doris Stewart, Jan Lowe and Joyce Sohl
July 10 – Amy Harkness Presbyterian Pastor

This service is open to the public and is a good way to take a “Sabbath break” during the week.
