We’ve got two very different kinds of worship service each Sunday morning. You are most welcome at either. Remember, this is God’s house, and you have as much right to be here as anyone else.
8:30 a.m. service
- Come to the quiet. This service is short, peaceful and contemplative.
- When you arrive, you’ll get a paper about what will happen during the service.
- We sing one hymn together. The words are on the screen at the front of the church.
- We read together from the traditional “Anglican Book of Common Prayer.” There’s a copy waiting at your seat. The pastor announces the page number.
- The pastor gives a sermon, or talk.
- If you’d like, there’s coffee and tea afterward, right at the back of the church.
10:30 a.m. service
- Get ready to sing, pray and think. This is our largest, liveliest service for people of all ages!
- A group of musicians plays at different points in the service. Their music sometimes rocks, sometimes calms, but always uplifts, inspires and comforts.
- There’s a sermon or talk by the pastor, bible readings, and readings out loud together.
- For songs and readings, all words are on a large screen at the front, or in a book at your seat. The pastor announces the page number.
- The style and things we do vary from Sunday to Sunday, ranging from traditional to more modern.
- 1st Sunday Of the month: The Lord’s Supper or Holy Communion — Book of Common Prayer: Traditional poetic form in use by generations of believers for almost 500 years.
- 3rd and 5th Sundays Book of Alternative Services Communion: More modern language
- 2nd and 4th Sundays Morning Prayer — Book of Common Prayer: no communion which allows time for other things the community needs in worship
- What do babies, children, and teens do during the service? Babies, children, or teens are welcome to stay in the service, or they may come downstairs to our Nursery or Sunday School. Children going to Sunday School participate upstairs for the first 15 minutes, including a short chat or activity (the “Children’s Talk”) with the pastor at the front, which follows the first song or hymn. They are then invited downstairs for their program. We have facilities for all ages. You may accompany them, or let them come on their own.
- After the service, join us for coffee, tea, cookies and juice and snacks for the kids. Always a friendly and joyful time.
A Note about our Offering: When you come to visit us, please enjoy our service without feeling any obligation to give money at the offering. Make your offering a “Friendship Card” (located in the pews), which you can fill out and put on the plate as it passes.
