We invite you to worship with us every Sunday at 8:00am and 10:00am. The Holy Eucharist is celebrated at both services, with choir anthems and hymns. In the Episcopal Church, all baptized Christians, regardless of age or background, are welcome to receive Communion. Both bread and wine are offered, but it’s perfectly fine to receive only one element and not the other, should you desire. Communion is distributed at the communion rail, where people may stand or kneel to receive. (We also have gluten-free bread for those who cannot tolerate wheat. Simply ask an usher on Sunday morning, if you need this alternative.)
As an Episcopal Church, we use Rite II of the 1979 Book of Common Prayer for most liturgies and use music from several hymnals. (The exception is the 8am service during the season of Lent, when we will use the traditional Anglican liturgy found in Rite I.) The 8am service is quiet, without music, and lasts about 40 minutes. The 10am service has hymns and choir anthems and generally lasts about an hour and 15 minutes. A coffee hour in the parish hall follows each service.
On the first Sunday of each month (October-May), we have a Youth Sunday service at 10am. This takes the place of Sunday School that day. As part of youth Sunday services, youth and children are especially involved, as readers, ushers, greeters, and intercessors. Instead of a traditional sermon, a children’s sermon is given, and children are invited forward for that message.
Please note that during the summer season (June through Labor Day weekend) we have a single Sunday morning service, with music, at 9 am. There is no Sunday School during this time, but nursery care is still available.
