Worship

As you enter the Nave on a Sunday morning or other day of worship, there is a warm, joyful spirit to be found. Longtime friends hug and greet each other and guests are welcomed and made to feel comfortable and at home.

Our Eucharistic Services are liturgically centered in The Book of Common Prayer, which provides a sense of the mystery of God and simultaneously frees worshipers to simply let the rhythm of the liturgy carry them through their worship experience.

Sermons are based on the Scripture lessons of the day and seek to offer relevance and authenticity to daily living. Several times a year, sermons at the later service are specifically designed with our children and youth in mind.

Our music is celebratory and also connects with the Scripture readings that day. Our early service offers contemporary styles of hymns accompanied by our Holy Apostolic Band, while the later service draws music from more traditional hymns accompanied by our Chancel Choir and Organist.

During Advent and Lent, an alternate service of Holy Communion is offered at Noon and following our evening programs.

Wednesday mornings at 7AM, Centering Prayer – a silent time of meditation - is offered to all who would like to be a part of this community.

If you seek worship that is grounded in hope and joy, that connects with God and a welcoming community for all people, and that inspires and informs your daily living, we hope you will feel welcome to join us!

Current Season

ORDINARY TIME:

Ordinary time encompasses the weeks following Pentecost and lasting until the First Sunday in Advent. This time, noticeable by the liturgical colors of green, is designated for the church to spend time studying and reflecting upon the teachings of Jesus as we read in Scripture each Sunday. We can use this liturgical season to understand the relevance and impact of these teachings for our lives as Disciples of Christ. They can serve to strengthen and guide us to be builders of Gods Kingdom in this world each and every day.
