Worship

Sundays

8:15am.  Whether you’re looking for a traditional Episcopal Eucharist or you’re simply an early riser, you’ll find a place here. We use the Book of Common Prayer (Rite II) along with time-honored hymns from the 1982 Hymnal to create a faith-filled, intimate, reverent worship service. The music is led by our early service choir, Bel Canto, along with our wonderful Skinner/Casavant organ. Our intention is to offer our thanks and praise to God in a way that’s true to our Episcopal heritage.

10:45am.  This service is festive and participatory, but it’s still faithful to the Book of Common Prayer. It lasts about 75 minutes and is our larger gathering. Everything you need is printed in an easy-to-follow service booklet. The entire community sings, supported by the Canterbury Choir and typically accompanied by piano. We begin around the baptismal font, then move into the seating area for the Liturgy of the Word, and finally gather around the altar for the Liturgy of the Table.

On a few Sundays (special occasions like the Feast of All Saints, or the day of our annual parish meeting) we have only one worship service, at 9:30am. You can check our calendar to be sure of the worship times on any Sunday.

Wednesdays

12:10pm.  Could you use a break in the middle of your busy week? We offer a brief, quiet, meditative Eucharist at midday on Wednesdays. Come as you are to hear the Word and share in the Meal, then go on your way refreshed and reconnected to God.


Our regular worship services always include communion - real bread and real wine (with gluten-free wafers and grape juice for those who need them). Jesus invited everyone to his table, so we invite everyone to God’s table too.

Do I need to be Episcopalian or Christian to come?  No – all are welcome! We don’t check IDs.

Do you have children’s and youth programs?  Children and youth are welcome in our Sunday morning worship. We don’t have a traditional Sunday School where kids and youth are shepherded off to a separate location. Instead, parents and kids pray, sing and learn together, along with the rest of our community. Part of learning to worship as a family is teaching children “how to attend church,” and we realize that there’s likely to be some noise and mayhem here and there. We offer nursery care for infants and toddlers during Sunday worship services, if you prefer.

Are gays, lesbians and transgender people welcome?  Yes.

What should I wear?  Clothes. We don’t care what kind.

Where should I park?  You’ll find all the details about parking here.
