“Eucharist” means a thanksgiving celebration, and every week we celebrate God’s love for us and our love for God, through the sacrament of the Holy Communion. Because we respect an individual’s call to worship, we offer 2 services that vary in approach but definitely not in content.
The 7:30 a.m. service
7:30 a.m. offers the liturgy from The Book of Common Prayer using Rite I. A little more traditional in presentation, this service is without music, but not without beauty. It allows those who seek a time for quiet reflection and contemplative prayer to experience God’s Love in a humble setting surrounded by the glory of the Saints in our stained glass windows. Healing prayers follow.
The 10 a.m. service
At 10 a.m. we offer the liturgy from the Book of Common Prayer using Rite II, which is more contemporary. Music is sung before, during, and at the end of the Eucharist. Eucharistic Ministers and lectors assist during this service. The Sunday school children come into church to be with their parents for communion during our traditional passing of the peace among the congregation; the peace is a joyous time followed by an inspiring anthem from our choir.
If you are looking for God’s message through words and song, join us at 10 a.m. Healing prayers follow this service. Then join us in Baker Hall for food and fellowship. Our “coffee hour” is always delicious, thanks to our coffee hour hosts.
Dependable nursery care is available each week for the 10 a.m. Eucharist.
The 9 a.m. service (Summers Only)
During the summer months we combine our 7:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. services to worship together as one family at 9 a.m. This service offers music but it is more limited. The liturgy shared from the Book of Common Prayer uses Rite I on the 1st and 3rd Sundays then switches to Rite II on the 2nd, 4th, and any 5th Sundays. This schedule runs from the Sunday following Memorial Day until our Welcome Back Sunday following Labor Day.
Healing prayers follow this service. Then join us in Baker Hall for our refreshing “iced tea hour” and fellowship.
Dependable nursery care is available each week for the 9 a.m. Eucharist.
