What Is Worship Like?

Second Sunday Gatherings are spirited, soulful, and filled with story telling, art-making and singing.

All ages and abilities have a place and a role.


What Should I Expect?


Expect to participate!

We usually make some kind of art project together during worship. We’ve built a big tent to represent the dwelling place God creates for us, made a community quilt, drawn portraits of our chosen family, and made vision boards for our selves and our city.

We also sing, pray and connect with one another. Each service is a little bit difference, but at each service, the Holy Spirit moves.


Expect to hear stories.

At each gathering we hear a story from a neighbor who has something particular to say about the biblical passage we’re exploring. We hear stories from our pastor, Emily, who helps us open up the text and listen to what God might be saying to us, today.

We also tell our own stories. Sometimes in small groups, sometimes to the whole group. But we’ve noticed that God shows up in our stories, and when we listen to stories, we encounter God.

Details Please!



Worship takes place in this cosy hall just off Harford Road in Northeast Baltimore. When you arrive at 3400 Norman Avenue, look for the big red doors, close to Lake Avenue. That’s the entrance!

Parking and Transit

There is lots of street parking in front of the hall. The 22 or 54 bus will also get you there!


There are several steps leading to the hall. Inside, there are plenty of chairs to use as you need. We move around during the service, but feel free to make use of a chair at any time.

The hall has an wheelchair accessible entrance in the rear, along with a parking spot close by. If you will need to make use of the entrance, please email Emily (our pastor) so she can give you all the details!

Trans Welcome

Everyone wears a name tag at worship with space for our pronouns. At each service Emily, our pastor, reminds the congregation why this is an important practice for the community.

The hall where we meet has a single stall bathroom with no gender marked.

Kid Welcome

Kids are key at Dreams and Visions. You and your children are welcome to do what you need to do to make worship an engaging experience for everyone. Every service has a kids area with pillows and blankets so children and babies can see and participate. Kids are an integral part of worship, and usually have a special job to do during the service.

It’s our hope that kids will feel involved in worship. But even when it seems like they’re not paying attention, they’re soaking up so much! Feel free to let them roam, sing and dance, make sounds or eat snacks. Breast feeding is welcome in worship, or if you prefer there are many private nooks to choose from!
