Service Times

8:00 a.m – Holy Eucharist, Rite I
This spoken Eucharist features traditional language, readings from holy scripture, a homily, and prayers for the world. As always, everyone is invited to come forward during Communion to receive the bread and wine made holy.

9:00 a.m. – Sung Holy Eucharist, Rite II
This lively service of worship includes traditional elements of Episcopal liturgy while lifting up our children and family ministries. Adapted from the Rite II Service of Holy Eucharist, worship integrates scripture, prayer, and sacrament with an interactive children’s homily delivered by lay members of the parish and varied musical offerings. Musical leadership is offered by the Children’s Choir and Youth Choir and youth also serve as acolytes. Pre-schoolers process to Sunday School following the children’s homily, while all other children up through Confirmation Class go following communion, while the adults hear the sermon.

Nursery care is available for children up to age three.

11:00 a.m. – Sung Holy Eucharist, Rite II
In this relatively traditional Rite II Eucharist, God is made known to us through word and sacrament. As in the earlier services, parishioners serve as lectors, prayer leaders, and Eucharistic ministers. Music, including choral offerings and congregational singing, is integral to our worship with leadership provided by the Parish Choir.

Nursery care is available for children up to age three.
