Worship times & Information

Our worship is rooted in the ancient traditions of the Christian encounter with God, shaped by historic Anglican practices, and engaged within our contemporary context. We offer two liturgies each week that reflect on God’s Word in Holy Scripture and share in the Holy Eucharist (Communion) through which we more fully “become who we are”  – the Body of Christ called to be witnesses and servants in the world.

Sunday Morning at 8:00 am

Quiet and contemplative. There is no music, but the sermon is the same one preached at the other weekend service.

We also use the same Rite II liturgy as at the other weekend service. Usually there are approximately 25-30 persons who worship at this service, which rarely goes beyond 45 minutes in length.

Sunday Morning at 10:00 am

This is a more structured liturgy led primarily by the organ, with most of the hymns selected from The Hymnal 1982, and often includes a choral anthem. The clergy, choir, acolytes, and Eucharistic ministers are all vested and process in and out at the beginning and end of the service. The energy level at this multi-generational service is high. (Attendance tends to average about 100). Church School, which includes young people in grades pre-K to fifth grade, begins each week at 9:45 a.m. The children join their families after the Passing of the Peace, bringing with them a burst of energy as we share together in the Celebration of Holy Eucharist. (Children in sixth grade and older stay in church with their families for the entire service; their Christian education takes place on Sunday afternoons through Rite 13 and J2A). This service generally lasts a little more than one hour, but usually no longer than 75 minutes. Coffee and treats are served in the Fellowship Hall after worship.
