A Typical Sunday

Sunday mornings typically consist of two services, an 8 a.m. spoken service and a 10 a.m. service with music.

8 a.m. Service

A said Eucharist using Rite I from The Book of Common Prayer. Limited music is provided by the organ and congregants. 

 

10 a.m. Service

A Eucharist which follows Rite II from The Book of Common Prayer and also makes use of supplemental liturgical resources such as Enriching Our Worship. Music is woven throughout the service, and we enjoy a wide diversity of musical expressions.   

Children attend church school during the first half of the service and then join the congregation for the Eucharist. A nursery for children two and under is staffed by child care workers. Click here for more information on our church school.

 

Lay Readers/Chalice Bearers

Worship is the work of all the people, lay and ordained, praying, praising and giving thanks together in the power of the spirit and in the presence of the living God. Adult and Youth Lay Readers lead the congregation in meditating on scripture and in the prayers. Lay people also serve the chalice during communion. Deacon David Grauer leads this ministry.
