ABOUT OUR WORSHIP:
Our celebrations of Holy Eucharist are Rite II.. On Sundays, our 8:30 service is a said Eucharist; the 10:30 is sung/chanted and there is a nursery for young ones. The Wednesday Eucharist is said, short and very informal. Our services are from the Book of Common Prayer; Scripture readings are from the Revised Common Lectionary, and we use the New Revised Standard Version.
Our invitation to Holy Communion is found in the gospel of Matthew (11:28). Our welcome to families is (as stated in our bulletin): "We love the sound of your children in our church home. If you feel the need to take them out of the worship service, we hope it’s for their comfort (if they are crying or need calming words), or your comfort (time to re-group). We’re fine. Really." Newcomer notebooks are available for guests and visitors unfamiliar with our form of worship - you don't have to know what to do. We've got your back. Come and settle in to the peace and Presence with friends. 1
