Worship Services

“Worship God in the beauty of holiness.” -Ps. 96:9

The living God can always be encountered: in the woods, in the garden, in the company of friends.  In the Episcopal Church, we use beautiful and ancient rituals to shape our spirits to be open to an encounter with God in a communal context.  We praise God with music; we listen to scripture; we contemplate scripture in the sermon; we pray for the world and for those nearby; and we break bread together in the Great Thanksgiving (also called Holy Communion and the Eucharist).  It is an Episcopal belief that coming back to these rituals regularly shapes us to be lovers of God and people.  We invite you, wherever you are in your spiritual life, to come worship with us:

SUNDAY 8:00 A.M.  Rite I Holy Eucharist

This is a quiet and reflective service with the assigned Bible readings, sermon, and Holy Eucharist.  Rite I uses language that has echoes of Elizabethan English from our previous prayer book.  There is always coffee and doughnuts in the hall following the service.

SUNDAY 10:30 A.M.  Holy Eucharist with Music (Rite II and Enriching Our Worship forms)

This mid-morning worship service is celebrated with music and hymns, Bible readings, sermon, and Holy Communion.  This services uses ritual liturgies with more current language, though its history can be very ancient.

At this hour, we provide childcare (ages 0-4) and Sunday School (ages 4-12).  You may drop off your children in our education building before the service.

After the service, we have a coffee hour.  You are invited to share light refreshments & conversations in the hall.   The children often gather in the playground behind the hall for their play and fun.

WEDNESDAY 12:10 P.M. Holy Eucharist with Anointing for Healing

This mid-week service is intimate and lovely.  We treat the “Saint of the Day”, which means we learn about the life of a great person in Christian history (not just Episcopal history).  Instead of a regular homily, we have discussions supplemented with information by the priest.  There’s lot of prayer in this service for current events and for people in our lives.
