Worship Services

In the times prior to the Coronavirus pandemic, we gathered in person at two Sunday services for communal worship as described below. Since early April 2020, the health & safety of our community has been a priority, and in-person services are on hold for the time being. Instead, we gather online using the Zoom web conferencing application. For more details on how to Zoom with us, Click Here.

“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.
