What to Expect at our Sunday Services
The 8 am service is an intimate and contemplative service of Holy Eucharist held in the choir behind the altar. There is no music at this service, but the lessons and sermon are identical to what is heard at the later service.
The 9:30 am service is a laidback, informal service of Holy Eucharist that is grounded in the ancient traditions of our faith. It is held in the sanctuary. The service lasts about 45 minutes, is participatory, and filled with happy chaos. Children are encouraged as leaders in this service by participating in the processions, reading the lesson, and leading the prayers. The music, led by children, youth, and adults, is informal and uplifting. All who desire to are invited to surround the altar during the Eucharistic prayer.
The 11 am service is a spirited and warm Sung Holy Eucharist service, featuring our joyful choir. It is held in our sanctuary and is livestream. For much of the year, the choir leads the music (ranging from traditional hymns, Gospel, Spirituals, Jazz, Taize, and more contemporary pieces). On major feast days, incense is used and will frequently offer special musical offerings. As with the 9:30am service, children are encouraged as leaders in this service by participating in the processions, reading the lesson, and leading the prayers. Older children also serve as acolytes, crucifers, and thurifers (the person who gets to handle the incense).
Our services are Holy Communion according to the traditional use of the Book of Common Prayer. We use a variety of Eucharistic Prayers taken from the Book of Common Prayer and Enriching Our Worship.
We practice Open Communion. Everyone is welcome to come to the Lord’s Table to receive the Holy Eucharist. Gluten-free bread is available; please mention it to the clergy person distributing the bread.
